175 miles completed, 196 miles under construction, 360 miles in pre-construction. (731 total)
(Excerpt) Read more at twitter.com ...
There is a new footnote that numbers are rounded (approximate), and there is no longer an "as of" date on the slide. It is still the most authoritative report that I know of.
Hoping to see new contract awards this week and next (as indicated in court documents in the Sierra Club lawsuit in the Ninth Circuit Court).
i see that the “not 1 mm of new wall has been built” freeper trolls have disappeared ...
Border threads are where you spot the never trumpers..
Is there a map showing what has been done in what states?
If the US wanted to get serious about illegals, they could easily use the IRS to achieve this with an extreme high effectiveness. Turn of the profitability for US businesses and for the illegals and the problem resolves itself.
But in typical US fashion, the solution to every problem is spending more money, not to fix anything.
9-11, embassy, the Boston marathon bombings are good examples. We spend a lot on body scanners at airports, vapor trace analysis, create an entire new government department, turn every embassy into a bunker, buy more armored vehicles for $250,000+ a piece for the state department, BUT we do not address the immigration from Saudi Arabia and other Middle East nations and guess what, the results are predictable despite BILLIONS spent. LOL How do you think the Tsarnaev brothers got into the US? LOL
We think that by avoiding making hard decisions and by spending lots of money we can fix things.

Thank you I’m so much more impressed seeing this than the stats. Guess I’m a visual person.

perfect example of another “low tech” weapon delivery system they are using against us
was any of this production in the mountainous terrain you discussed last week?
What made America strong in the past was a free market, free people, who were innovative, productive, and highly adaptive. But look at today- you have corona virus and this once powerful and great society defined by a rugged individualism has no ideas and simply looks towards government for all their answers in a collective manner.
What truly scares me most is that like socialist Europeans who have been conditioned to think that way, Americans today look towards government for a solution to every problem.
“was any of this production in the mountainous terrain”
They don’t break out how much was where - they just report the weekly total across all projects combined.
We did see some video of a crew chewing a path over a rough mountain in Arizona last week though (Barry Goldwater Test Range). We have also been waiting sometime longer than usual to see work start on the Eastern extension of the San Diego barrier, into the steep terrain. I hope to see that soon.
There is still a lot of fast moving flat terrain to keep them busy the rest of the year, but it goes by operational priority.
That first piece of mountainous terrain in Arizona, was actually an historic smuggling trail, which has been used for a thousand years, called the Devil’s Highway (El Camino del Diablo).
Still worried about stoppage so within next 8 months start construction of all contracts between San Diego and El Paso.
These can all be started with different vendor companies between now and Dec 31. El Centro and Yuma well under way.
From San Diego -> Otay Mesa -> Tecate -> Campo -> Jacumba -> El Centro -> Yuma -> San Luis -> Organ Pipe/T’ohono Oodham -> Sasabe. Then on the other side of Arizona mountains do what makes sense from Palominas to East El Paso.
Get all segments into construction just in case Trump loses.
You’re welcome. I visit both sites regularly & watch the construction videos when I want to lift my spirits.
