BREAKING: Over 250 Miles of New Border Wall Funded and Being Built

Speaking recently, acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan revealed that approximately 256 miles of new barriers at the US-Mexico border have been contracted and funded, which he said will be built at a rate of half a mile per day.

“The army corps of engineers has the responsibility to build the barrier,” explained Shanahan. “We now have on contract, sufficient funds to build about 256 miles of barrier.”

Shanahan went on to explain that, within the next six months, around 63 miles of new barrier should be completed.

According to Shanahan, DHS funding from 2017 and 2018, along with Treasury Department forfeitures and other funding will be used to complete the barrier construction.
