CBP Completes 50 Miles of New Border, 50 More Underway
« on: July 11, 2019, 01:36:04 PM »
About 50 miles of brand new wall has been completed by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) along the United States’ southwest border with more expected to be constructed, according to acting commissioner Mark Morgan.

“50 miles of new border wall on the Southwest border and construction continues every day,” Morgan announced in a July 10 Twitter post. “Construction is underway for more than 50 additional miles and more contract awards are anticipated by the end of the year.”

Accompanying Morgan’s Twitter post were a number of photos, some showing the construction process—others depicting the finished product. It did not say exactly where the new wall was being built.

The Department of Homeland Security announced weeks ago that Morgan would serve as the acting commissioner of CBP after John P. Sanders’s decision to resign. Morgan became the acting director of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) in May.

Last month, President Donald Trump praised a decision reached by the federal court denying a request by House Democrats to block funds being appropriated from other accounts for the construction of the border wall.

“Just had a big victory in Federal Court over the Democrats in the House on the desperately needed Border Wall. A big step in the right direction. Wall is under construction!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
