The Trump administration has reportedly started construction on yet another section of the border wall in liberal California.
The border wall will replace 14 miles of barrier in the San Diego sector.
President Donald Trump wasted no time either as construction began just three days after he declared a national emergency over the border crisis.
“U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday that the first panels are in place to replace a steel-mesh fence with steel bollards up to 30 feet (9 meters) high. SLSCO Ltd. of Galveston, Texas, was awarded the $101 million contract in December,” the Associated Press reported.
The report added: “It is the second layer of barrier in San Diego. Work on replacing the first layer is nearly complete, which is also 14 miles long and made of steel bollards up to 30 feet high.”
On Wednesday, Trump also tweeted video of the completion of construction on another border wall in New Mexico.
While there is a legal debate raging over whether President Trump has the authority to declare a national emergency to build the wall, many legal experts believe he does.
Several lawsuits have already been filed by liberal groups attempting to prevent the construction of the wall to protect America’s borders. They continue to stand with illegal immigrants and against the wishes of victims of crime.
“A deported child sex offender was able to illegally cross back into our country to potentially harm other kids in Louisiana,” Rep. Steve Scalise tweeted. “That’s outrageous. And it’s why @realDonaldTrump and Republicans are taking action to increase border security and build a wall.”
