VIDEO: Border Patrol Building a 30 Foot Wall in Arizona

AP reports the US Border Patrol has begun construction of five miles of a 30-foot border wall along the Colorado River near Yuma, Arizona.

The wall is replacing an older barrier that was designed to stop vehiclesfrom crossing, but allowed people to pass.

The president and his administration said this week that they plan on building between 450 and 500 miles (724 and 806 kilometers) of fencing along the nearly 2,000-mile (3,218-kilometer) border by the end of 2020, an ambitious undertaking funded by billions of defense dollars that had been earmarked for things like military base schools, target ranges and maintenance facilities.
