This is why acceleration and full completion of border wall is Critical to stopping illegal entry into our country.
Border fence replacement hailed by Trump is completed in Calexico

Construction workers last week put up the final panel of a new border barrier in Calexico, Calif., a project touted by President Trump as the first part of his promised wall between Mexico and the U.S.
Border wall replacement along New Mexico’s border with Mexico is finished
Nov 26, 2018 20 miles of bollard fencing now stands west of the port of entry in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.
The Calexico structure is one of several going up along the Southwest border this year. Workers recently completed 20 miles of border barrier in Santa Teresa, N.M., a project that began in April.
In a September news conference, officials with U.S. Border Patrol’s El Paso Sector said the 18-to 30-foot-tall bollard-style fencing in Santa Teresa was finished months earlier than projected.
“We determined that construction of a new barrier would help us reduce illegal entries and make more effective use of our agents and other resources,” Hull said.
It cost approximately $73 million to build the column-style wall that stretches for 20 miles west of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry in Santa Teresa. The wall replaces older fencing and vehicle barriers there.

30-FOOT BORDER WALL BEGINS CONSTRUCTION IN CALIFORNIA
Several days after President Donald Trump declared a national emergency, construction began on the fifth border wall project of his administration.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Tuesday that work has started on replacing 14 more miles of a steel-mesh fence along the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego, The Associated Press reported. The fence is being replaced with 30-foot high steel bollards. It is actually the second layer of barrier to be put up in the area, with the first layer nearly complete.
Contractors are already working on hundreds of miles of construction.
SLSCO Ltd., a company located in Galveston, Texas, scored the $101 million contract in December 2018. The Trump administration has already awarded around $1 billion in contracts to cover 97 miles of the southern border, with the project in San Diego being one of the latest.
Trump signed into law an appropriations bill earlier in February that doles out $1.375 billion for 55 miles of new wall, an amount immigration hardliners said was not enough. However, the president then took the controversial step on Feb. 15 of declaring a national emergency, which allowed him to allocate a total of about $8 billion in federal funds.
Officials say the construction starting in February is only part of the picture. Funding from fiscal year 2018, they say, also covers the cost of building 70 more miles of barriers — about 57 miles of which is replacement fencing. Replacing ineffective fence with new 30 ft steel wall.
The US-Mexico border stretches for 1,954 miles. Currently, physical barriers cover 654of those miles, according to US Customs and Border Protection.
What’s known as vehicle fencing covers 280 miles. This is fencing that’s low to the ground. It would stop a car, but people can easily step over it. This is being replaced with Trump’s new 30 ft Wall barrier. Some already completed and some ongoing. This will account for 208 miles of Trump’s Wall when fully completed.
What’s known as pedestrian fencing covers some 374 miles. This is taller and designed to block people from crossing on foot. This is also being replaced with 30 ft wall to prevent climbing over and will account for 374 miles of Trump’s Wall when completed. Some has already been replaced with construction on going to replace rest of it.
Appropriations last year provided $1.375 billion in funding to build 82 miles of new and replacement barriers in multiple locations across the border.
Of that funding, $700 million has gone to contracts for construction of new and replacement wall systems, he said, and another $300 million “is ready to award.
Soon we’re actually going to see a wall built in a new section of the border.
Officials say they’ll be able to build 234 miles of new and replacement barriers— about 100 miles of which will cover parts of the border that didn’t have a barrier before.
Construction is expected to begin in February 2019 on 14 new miles in the Rio Grande Valley.
Called a levee wall system, the project includes the construction of a reinforced concrete levee wall, 18-foot-tall steel bollards installed on top of the concrete wall, and vegetation removal along a 150-foot enforcement zone. The price tag: $312 million.
