    Building the wall was a top promise of the Trump campaign along with getting Mexico to pay for it. Well, Mexico hasn’t paid but some wall has been built with more progress made since summer after the Supreme Court ruled President Trump and use military funds. For a reality check on the wall we head to the Tucson Sector in Arizona, covering 262 border miles, and one of the busiest for illegal immigrants and drugs.

    Customs and Border Protection plans to deploy up to 200 autonomous surveillance towers as it expands its work with the portable, off-the-grid systems into a program of record. The towers, supplied by contractor Anduril, are designed as unmanned sentinels along the Southern border with Mexico that operate autonomously in remote areas where grid power is not available. The agency has been testing the technology for a couple of years. CBP tested four of the towers in the San Diego region in early 2018, and has bought 56 additional towers since, it said in its statement. Ultimately, CBP wants to procure...

    The Hill ^ | 07 01 2020 | Harper Neidig
    A federal judge late Tuesday night struck down a Trump administration rule that banned most migrants from receiving asylum at the southern border with Mexico. U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly said the administration failed to follow the procedural law governing how regulations can be implemented, which requires advance notice and a period for the public to comment on the proposal. "These procedures are not a mere formality," Kelly, who was appointed by President Trump, said in his opinion. The rule was implemented last year by the Justice Department and Homeland Security in an attempt to crack down on migrants...

    The Trump administration doesn't have the authority to divert Pentagon funds to construct additional barriers on the US-Mexico border, a federal appeals court ruled Friday, days after President Donald Trump's visit to a section of the wall in Arizona. In a 2-1 ruling, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals said that the transfer of $2.5 billion circumvented Congress, which holds the authority to appropriate money.

    A federal appeals court decided 2-1 Friday that the Trump administration violated the law when it used military funds to build a wall on the Mexican border. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said the power of the purse belongs to Congress, and the administration lacked constitutional authority to transfer the military money. Two Democratic appointees were in the majority. A Trump appointee dissented.

    VIDEO Um, isn't the purpose of a border wall to make it harder (or more inconvenient) to illegally cross the border? However, that seems to be the concern of this MSNBC reporter, Jacob Soboroff. He is also concerned about coronavirus crossing the border. NEWSFLASH!!! By making it harder for people to cross the border, the new border wall is also making it harder for coronavirus to cross the border.

    On Tuesday morning, correspondents on both CNN and MSNBC While CNN's John Harwood tried to downplay the significance of the new wall by noting that most of it was replacing a barrier that was already there, MSNBC's Jacob Soboroff went in the opposite direction as he predicted that it would have "drastic effects" as it would "force" illegal immigrants to cross into the U.S. in "more dangerous and deadly territory."

    U.S. President Donald Trump praised what he described as a “powerful and comprehensive” wall along the nation’s southern border Tuesday, highlighting one of the key promises from his successful election campaign four years ago to secure the U.S. borders.

    In January, hundreds of people gathered on a small bridge spanning the San Pedro River to protest the pending construction of a border barrier across the riverbed. Since then, the project has moved ahead. Cottonwood trees have been cleared and construction crews are setting up... After months with no new details on the project design, last week the agency said the barrier across the San Pedro River will consist of a bridge with gates, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
