Trump continues to fulfill his promise to build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
The border wall will curb the illegal immigration and humanitarian crisis happening at the border.
The White House announced today that the administration has secured funding to build an additional 1,000 miles of new border wall.
According to the Daily Caller:
The Trump administration is shifting its border wall focus from procuring resources to breaking ground on new construction after securing funds for 1,000 miles of new wall along the southern border, White House officials tell the Daily Caller.
The fiscal year 2021 budget requests fewer funds for border wall construction than in previous years, but a senior White House official explained how the administration has “now shifted from securing funds to being able to build more wall.”
Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan said in January he expects to meet President Donald Trump’s goal of erecting 450 miles of new border wall construction
