President Trump is Securing America’s Southern Border
The Trump Administration’s plans to secure America’s southern border involves more than 700 miles of new and replacement wall, meaning about 50% the border with Mexico would have a physical barrier.
The administration had put together a document for the proposal, which carries a price tag of nearly $18-B for The Wall.
There are currently 654 miles of fencing on the US side of the border with Mexico. The plan involves replacing several sections of that existing barrier and adding more than 300 miles of new fencing.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) prepared the document for several Senators who requested a detailed ask regarding the administration’s border wall plans. The document contains a total of $33-B in expenditures related to improving border security.
Republicans and Democrats are trying to work together on an immigration deal that would include border security provisions.
Mr. President, build The Wall!
Have a terrific weekend.
