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.
Fifty 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 Morgans Twitter post were a few photos, some showing the construction processothers depicting the finished product. It didnt 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. Sanderss decision to resign. Morgan became the acting director of Immigration and 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.
U.S. Border Patrol apprehended 688,375 illegal aliens on the southern border this fiscal year, according to the latest CBP data. In June alone, Border Patrol agents apprehended 94,897 illegal immigrants.

POTUS needs to secure our borders with military troops with guns and bullets. The bullshit has gone on long enough.
Thanks for the ping.
Do those characters actually mean anything?
That portion shown is just an upgraded fence not a wall.
Trying to count the number of illegals crossing the border by the ones detained is no more accurate than deciding how many speeders are on the road based on the number of tickets issued.
Border Patrol agents have traditionally stated they only apprehend 10-20% of those who cross the border illegally.
