Construction began on Friday on the US-Mexico border wall in San Diego County. Now, it is being reported that President Donald Trump has included a special new “feature” on his long-promised border wall that will stop illegal immigrants in their tracks. You’re going to love this!
President Donald Trump promised the American people that he would work diligently to fix our broken immigration system, and he is now delivering on that vow. During his campaign for the White House and at rallies after he won the presidency, Trump touted the massive border wall he would build between the U.S. and Mexico. Well, on Friday, construction finally began in Southern California.
True to his word, President Trump is building the best border wall American patriots could have hoped for, complete with a special new feature sure to stop illegal immigrants in their tracks: an anti-climbing plate.
Construction started Friday on the US-Mexico border wall project at Border Field State Park, the third project in San Diego County. The work will replace about 14 miles of scrap metal wall that stands up to 10 feet high with a wall between 18 and 30 feet tall. The new wall will also have an anti-climbing plate, Customs and Border Protection said.
Crews will build the wall starting half a mile from the Pacific Ocean, east to the bottom of Otay Mountain in East County. Work is being done by SLSCO, a Texas-based construction company, at a cost of $147 million. While the CBP said the existing wall was effective, it was erected in the 1990s from Vietnam-era scrap metal and needed replacing to deal with what the CBP described as an increased cross-border threat.

“The construction of this new substantial wall will improve overall border security, the safety and effectiveness of Border Patrol agents, the safety of the public, and will enhance the atmosphere for business and commerce in the area,” said Rodney Scott, the Chief Patrol Agent for the San Diego Sector.
“Under this president’s leadership, we have a renewed commitment to secure our border,” added Ronald Vitiello, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Acting Deputy Commissioner. “The new primary wall-project represents an important milestone in our work to secure the international border.”
“Not only does it significantly upgrade our existing infrastructure in San Diego, it also marks the third concurrent wall project in the U.S. and reflects CBP’s unwavering commitment to secure our borders and protect our Nation,” Vitiello concluded. Two other border projects in progress included two miles of wall in Calexico, California, and 20 miles of border wall in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.
President Donald Trump visited San Diego, California, in March in order to review eight massive prototypes for the wall. While he was there, his conversation with a Border Patrol Agent was captured on camera, revealing what the current wall is made of. President Trump was noticeably stunned when he learned the truth.
An unidentified agent told the president that guards in his area had built a wall out of scrap metal, having no other materials to work with, and even this makeshift barrier was 95 percent effective. “There was effectively no border in San Diego. It was a chaotic situation,” the agent told Trump. “We set it in place really just to delineate where the border was. And it changed our environment.”
There can be no doubt that President Trump’s border wall will be successful — if scrap metal can keep so many undocumented immigrants at bay, the impenetrable barrier Trump’s team is working on could solve our immigration problems almost entirely.
