CBP Completes 50 Miles of New Border, 50 More Underway
epoch times ^ | 7/11/2019 | BOWEN XIAO

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 Morgan’s Twitter post were a few photos, some showing the construction process—others depicting the finished product. It didn’t 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 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 should find out apprehension totals, for the past nine years, and deduct from the census totals.

The wall is useless when the doors to the wall are wide open and once in via the magic of declaring “ASYLUM!”,the illegal gains more rights than the American citizen. Any wall built now will be an unmanned decrepit hulk when the leftist finally finish America off. We are being played.

Sounds like a lot. I read a report at one point revealing how many people had been apprehended in one nine month period in the 2000s. At one point, one sector alone had arrested over 900,000 in a nine month period. They try to act like things are worse than they have ever been, but it's no true.

doesn’t matter how many they arrest. It’s how many get thru. Arrest means they are IN the US. That’s a bad thing.

Bears repeating. Now the illgals are in the criminal justice system of Epstein. Child traffickers get special exemptions.

This means nothing. Those crimigrants specifically come here wanting to be apprehended by our joke of border agents, just so they can utter the magic word "asylum." Then they get entered into our system of freebies.

Whomever is publicizing these numbers of "apprehensions" is doing so, so that we are lulled into a false sense of security. "Oh, look, something is actually being done!" No. We're being told something is being done so that we think our votes weren't wasted.

As posted above. We're being played. Rome is burning. Nero is playing the fiddle.

The point was that numbers were twice as high under Bush.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They know an accurate average of the illegals entering daily. Until the liberals agree to the citizenship question on the census I would be leading with this plan front and center.
