The U.S. Customs and Border Protection unveiled a stretch of new border wall on the Southern Border and said it completed at least 60 miles in all.
“Construction crews continue work on the new border wall system along the SW border near San Luis” in Arizona, the agency wrote on Twitter.
So far, more than 60 miles have been constructed “along the SW border since 2017,” and the agency is expected to “complete 450 miles by the end of 2020,” the tweet read.
The wall is located in the Yuma Sector, which is among the busiest along the southern U.S.
According to local Arizona station KOLD 13, work on more border wall sections has started in Arizona and New Mexico. The work on the wall, which was campaign promise of President Donald Trump, stretches 46 miles west of Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and also is on 2 miles of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Arizona.
The workers broke ground on the construction between Columbus and Santa Teresa in New Mexico, the Aug. 23 KOLD report noted. And in Arizona, crews were seen installing 30-foot steel fencing to replace barriers near the Lukeville Port of Entry. more
