Promise Kept: Trump Building Wall, Despite Democrat Efforts to Thwart

A five miles stretch of a Pentagon funded wall is beginning to take shape just outside of Yuma, Arizona.

Earlier this year, President Trump directed the Pentagon to start funding the border security wall designed to reduce the number of illegal immigrants flooding across the Mexican border. An attempt made by Democrats to stop the funding was undermined by a July Supreme Court ruling that allowed the diversion of funds.

This new construction marks the second ongoing border wall replacement project in southern Arizona. Earlier this year, crews took down 11 miles of aging fence and replaced it with 30 foot tall steel bollards.

“The media won’t tell you this, but we’re building a wall and we’re doing it on an expedited basis,” President Trump said in a video released on Twitter.

Trump says by the end of next year, close to 500 miles of wall will be built. “We’re taking money from all over, because as you know the Democrats don’t want us to build the wall. They’re fighting us at every step,” the president said.
