    The 30-foot-high bollard-style wall is a massive upgrade, and exactly what the men and women of the Border Patrol have requested. It's not mere replacement, for dilapidated, ineffective low wall and vehicle barriers : It's a new wall and part of a wall system.

  5. President Trump:

    He also said they are still considering restrictive language in the appropriations bill and what that means for current projects. He added that money, which he called a down-payment, will be funding construction and repair in areas including San Diego, Calexico, and Santa Theresa, New Mexico. He said that the Calexico project started last week. President Trump objected to the $ 1.3 trillion omnibus bill due to the lack of funding for border security, and has been looking into the possibility of getting the military to fund the approximately $ 25 billion project. Conservatives noted that the bill limited the approximately 100 miles of new construction and repairs to already approved models -- not the prototypes President Trump recently viewed in California. While Vitiello noted that a lot of the 100 miles was replacement, he said it was new construction and that some parts are moving from old, often dilapidated fencing to 30-foot steel bollard designs. He said that, for instance, in El Paso a three-foot vehicle barrier was being replaced by 18 or 30 foot wall. On what needs to be done, Vitiello said that that the entire wall project would cover approximately 1,000 miles with various wall structures, he believed $ 25 billion in funding would adequately fund that project. He said that from the testing of the prototypes, a new design standard was being formulated that would be used going forward. Currently, approximately 654 miles of the border are covered by some form of fencing or barrier. Vitiello's remarks come a day after President Trump touted the early stages of construction at a speech in Richfield, Ohio. We started our wall — what a thing of beauty.
