The Trump administration launched an interactive webpage Wednesday streaming footage of the wall being constructed on the southern border between the U.S. and Mexico.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) webpage streams video and drone footage of the construction of the border wall, which was a key proposal of President Trumps agenda during the 2016 campaign.
The CBP page also includes an interactive map that allows users to zoom in on new construction projects along the border wall, as well as an infographic of the border wall construction.
President Trump is delivering on his promise to build a border wall system to secure the border, acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan said in a statement. Border security is national security and a strong border wall system is critical to keeping our nation safe."

Well, it’s about time I read some GOOD news.
The team building this are killin it. Incredible progress.
Border Wall Ping.
This site on Border Wall System progress (https://www.cbp.gov/border-security/along-us-borders/border-wall-system ) will probably get some more features/content over time, but it is from an official source (Customs and Border Protection).
Just went live in the last hours...
It’s gotta be better than the Obama oil spill feed.
Oh, beautiful, beautiful! I’d rather watch that than almost anything on TV or YouTube or you name it! :-)
When I’m 100 and on my death bed, I’m STILL gonna be watching it and whooping it up everytime they raise another panel! Oh, I’m gonna be an onery old fella. The nurses are gonna hate me. ;-)
By clicking on one of the icons on the map (”Table”), I got a list of projects to appear at the bottom of the map, some of which linked to additional nice photos.
That list did not appear to be comprehensive (noting in the Rio Grande Valley Sector yet reflected), but I’d expect that more content/features will roll out over time.
A lot of great work is being done.
“Well, its about time I read some GOOD news.”
Is Ann Coulter still deeply concerned?
The heck if I know.
Why do you ask?
Looking from one view, please tell me those aren’t wind mills on the ridges.
Now I am seeing the Rio Grande Valley Sector Projects - it was likely my error before (not having that part of the map in frame, as I searched the Table of Projects).
Ann Coulter must be weeping
Wherever she is
As a builder Trump has built many beautiful things. But this.. will be his magnum opus.
170 miles completed. lovin’ it! 8 miles since last Friday (announced on Monday). Once these guys get moving, free of lawsuits, protests, and harassment, I knew they would begin more rapid installation. Some areas of course are easier than others, but they are pushing through.
And now that many other construction jobs are gone due to the Kung Flu that means many more workers will be available to get it up even faster.
“please tell me those arent wind mills on the ridges.”
Not sure where you saw them. There are camera/radar towers going in to a lot of places (called Integrated Fixed Towers), especially Arizona.
Maybe the windmills, like some of the solar panels, just charge batteries for backup power. Most of the new stuff is going in with grid-powered electric supply, but reliability (redundancy) matters in National Security applications.
Posted this to my Favorites Bar.
I think I’m in love with the footage.
How far up a mountain side do they build? According to the map, there won’t be any wall in mountainous areas. Doesn’t this create potential gaps and weaknesses?
