President Donald Trump promised throughout his campaign that he would build a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in order to keep illegal immigrants out.
Now, that promise appears to be getting fulfilled after a section of border wall was installed in Naco, Arizona.
According to reports, a 7-and-a-half mile long welded steel wall was completed along the border. Hilariously enough, the funding used for the wall was provided by former President Barack Obama.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Trump is “using the current bill to get his priorities moving and put it down,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said at a news briefing in early May, according to a White House transcript. “To answer the question: It is currently being built in Naco, Arizona; Sunland Park, New Mexico; and we are going to be starting to do this in San Diego; El Paso; and Rio Grande Valley.”
The project was paid for by last year’s fiscal budget, which was given the thumbs up by Obama. It seems that the former president is fine with securing small areas of the border, but attacks anyone who wants to secure the entire country.
At 18 feet high, the new wall is meant to stop pedestrians from crossing into the United States unimpeded. It is replacing an older and far less effective fence, which was reportedly built from chain link and pieces of a military landing platform.
Liberals continue to attack Trump for wanting to build the border wall, saying that he is being racist and insensitive to immigrants. While Obama would call violent illegal immigrants dreamers, Trump recognizes that these violent individuals provide no value to the United States.
Where do you stand on the border wall? Are you hopeful that Trump will get it rolling?
