YUMA Dozens of construction workers labor like a bustling colony of ants only this colony is located along a 126-mile-long portion of the United States's southern border with Mexico.
Standing 100 feet from one of these construction sites, watching workers install the concrete-filled steel beams into the ground feels painfully slow, but driving along the banks of the river and canal, the workers' years of labor is overwhelmingly evident and compelling. The wall is up, everywhere.
Workers decked in orange vests operate the yellow construction machines in a robotic fashion as they drop the maroon pieces of steel into the ground and then repeat the step again and again. Enough piles of these steel beams sit in a nearby field of dirt to run the length of a football field.
Over the past three years, construction crews here have installed 90 miles of border wall and almost 40 miles more of a parallel, back-up wall in the Yuma border patrol region, which spans from the Imperial Dunes in southeastern California to Arizonas Pima County line. Compared to what I saw on a visit one year ago, the places on the border that Border Patrol agents show me today are unrecognizable.
The border has physically changed as a result of the Trump administrations decision to fund projects along the 2,000-mile dividing line between two countries. But it is also different in the way federal agents who are responsible for securing this strip of land-use infrastructure such as a wall to carry out their national security mission.
five-mile stretch of the border will not get new wall because the land belongs to the Cocopah Reservation. This area is where agents are seeing the most illegal immigration right now, an indication of the new walls success at preventing illegal entries.

We need a wall more around Portland, OR and Seattle.
From March - drone footage of the entire wall
Winning. I want more winning!
Those Indians might change their mind about the wall when they are the only point of egress.
Put walls around the reservation and leave a opening at the other end so you can funnel the illegals to one point and collect them there. Just let them walk across the reservation.
Just remember how much opposition President Trump had to endure in order for him to keep this most important promise.
God Bless President Trump!!!
Maybe they should put a wall around the reservation so that it becomes part of May-hee-co instead of the USA.
No one backed him on the wall. No one It was his will and determination to keep his promise that got it done. Just amazing
So the tribe owns the border, and national immigration policy that applies to it? Yeah, ok, sure.
Just what kind of anti-American losers are these indians? Build a wall around their lousy “reservation”.
Trump is a unique man. He rose in New York City so he's used to playing hardball. But more than that, he cultivated a very polarizing image to generate buzz. Love him or hate him (lots of both!) people were talking about him and he thrived on it.
The result is that he's immune from being excoriated by the press. He just doesn't care, or maybe he actually enjoys it. But efforts to make him wilt and crawl away by calling him Hitler just roll of his back. What other politician could stand up to what Trump has? They impeached him for literally nothing, for crying out loud. And he laughed at them.
We'll probably never see such a President again in our lifetimes.
We need a wall along the western border of Texas to curb liberals fleeing from blue states.
I was thinkin the same thing
Us Deplorables backed him and that’s all he needed. I am coming to a full understanding that Donald J. Trump is a truly great man. There are few genuine greats among us, so it takes time to fully recognize one when one appears on the scene.
He just doesn’t care, or maybe he actually enjoys it.
Like most type A personalities we didn’t inherit the need to be liked and are completely comfortable defining ourselves despite anyone else’s opinion.
Traditional politics is about getting credit for things you didn’t do, and avoiding blame for the things you did do.
Trump is not a traditional politician.
Biden is a traditional politician.
This year, voters will have a chance to show that they’ve learned something.
Great video , thanks for the link.
