Bulldozers just (Tuesday, 20 August) spotted SW of Yuma, AZ. This planned 6-mile wall (YUMA 1 on map).
(Excerpt) Read more at twitter.com ...
Yuma has several segments going in - over 25 miles worth. About ten miles of mighty 30 footers is already done on the South side of Yuma/San Luis.
And who is this laiken jhorda assclown? Anti border? How many of the poor folks is he supporting at his place? Did I misread something here? PUT UP THE WALL!
“who is this laiken jhorda?”
He is a leftwinger posting on Twitter. Apparently with one of the organizations suing to stop the wall.
He posted a picture of the first vehicles showing up on the Yuma 1 site though, thereby providing some useful status information.
CBP does not announce groundbreakings (typically just public comment notices, contract awards and environmental waivers), and the press often does not cover the start of work, unless they have a bash Trump angle.
HOORAY Chief! HOORAY USCBP!
These 6-7 miles are just one of the contracts that the Supreme Court had to bust loose from a lower court injunction last month. That also freed up other contracts that are starting work now on Arizona Federal Lands (63 miles) and in Yuma (7 miles, where separate contracts are putting in about 20 more miles - 10 already done. 46 more miles in New Mexico, extending the last 20 mile segment from El Paso further to the West (past the Columbus Port of Entry).
A second run of 30 foot bollards is half done in San Diego, and construction is ongoing in Tecate and Calexico in California (soon to start in Andrade).
Damn near the whole Rio Grande Valley is going to be on contract soon (95 miles). Five contracts have already been awarded down there. A month (or more likely two) after the public comment period closes next Monday (26 Aug), the rest of those contracts should drop like rain, with construction commencing about three months later.
There are billions more (about 4) in this year’s funding which has been identified (with the emergency declaration), but not yet committed, plus whatever comes next year.
The drought on wall building is over. Next year, the deluge.
Thanks for the update.
El Cenizo, Texas (just South of Laredo) has expressed interest in having We Build The Wall construct barrier there.
Whut? The Never Trumpers on FR kept bitching that there is NO WALL, they will never vote for Trump (again), and they felt betrayed and there will never be a wall. This is misleading..
fantastico! thanks for the updates!!
yep. i think they have two sites they are getting ready for, but won’t announce until after construction to avoid the leftist, antifa (anti-first Amendment), antiAm (anti-American) protests and attacks.
I LOVE these people!!!! Never more truer American Patriots!
Are We Build the Wall people building more wall?
He’s a sign that we’ve hit the jackpot. The biggest indicator that we’re building the wall in the correct areas is when the activist crowd goes insane.
They say they are working on a second project but haven’t announced too many details. Probably OPSEC. We didn’t know about the first wall until it was completed. And, I’m okay with that.

Now, thanks to the width= percentage modifier, this image will adapt and look good no matter the screen size or resolution.
Sorry about the right side being cut off. It is like that in the original.
