Watch that new border wall going up where it is needed most

American Thinker:

Congress still refuses to fund a complete border wall, but that isn’t stopping the king of construction, Donald J. Trump, from delivering the goods where it is needed most.  The El Paso Times has provided an entertaining and interesting video of construction of a new, much bigger border wall being built on the border separating the metropolises of Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, with a combined metropolitan population of at least 2.7 million souls. In an environment of scarcity, priorities must always be established, and the most densely populated areas should pay the greatest dividends in limiting the prospects of border-jumpers.  San Diego and Tijuana, along with El Paso and Juarez are ground zero.

The Hill reposts the El Paso Times video and notes:

“In fiscal year 2017, El Paso Sector apprehended 25,193 illegal aliens, seized 34,189 pounds of marijuana and 140 pounds of cocaine,” the release continued. “Additionally during that fiscal year, there were 54 assaults against El Paso Sector agents.”

The agency said it contracted West Point Contractors of Tucson, Ariz., on June 1 to build the barrier. MORE HERE

  1. ain’t high enough
    ain’t surrounded by alligators
    ain’t electrified
    ain’t got motion-sensor mini-cannons

    … I could go on & on …

  2. but … after two freakin’ years! at least somethings being done

    Obysmal can get 150 billion to give to Iran, Trump can’t squeeze a few million from the Homeland Security budget … go figure … effin’ repubtards

  3. Obama funded Islamic & Iranian Terrorists without the knowledge of Congress, Trump should be able to Protect our borders and Americans with a wall.

  4. Trump, the expert in real estate and construction, as well as the expert in securing funding for such, knows that shutting a strategic 10% of the border will cut down 90% of the illegal traffic. It will also create chokepoints to catch the remaining potential border crossers trying to get here easily. Geography will take care of the rest. Also, once it is not so easy to cross back and forth over the border, many illegals will decide to go home until the Democrats open the door again.

    Regardless of Paul Ryno, there is money to build some wall, maybe enough wall to give us some breathing space ,assess the results, and go from there. But you idiot lefties, please just stay focused on your SC scheming.

  5. The wall. Opponents say it will reduce America. I enthusiastically agree:

    The Democratic voter reduction barrier
    The black unemployment reduction barrier.
    The welfare expenditure reduction barrier.
    The Crime reduction barrier.
    The DUI Reduction barrier.

  6. At least it’s a wall we can see thru. Now pass a law that allows US citizens the right to claim the Castle Doctrine if we see illegals trying to climb it, and we will put a dent in the numbers of illegal crossings. It won’t take long for them to learn either.

  7. Many of the anti-wallers, like Jorge Ramos get so mad about the wall.
    Why? Why does the wall bother them – at all?
    Then they say things like “It won’t work anyway!”
    Well that’s more reason they shouldn’t care about a wall.
    If it makes us goofballs happy, let us have a wall.
    (Maybe it will work – and that’s what they’re afraid of.)

  8. Not to give away the game, lefties, but here’s how it works:

    “Photo and video crews were stymied in their attempts to film President Trump on a golf course Wednesday, an apparent response to CNN’s recent footage of the commander-in-chief on the links.”

    One truck on the edge of a huge golf course shut you down cold, journos. If you think that can’t be repeated on a macro level, then you… just keep on thinking that.

  9. Good-now maybe traffic won’t back up for miles on I-10 east of el paso because of the drug interdiction roadblocks
