Reporter Roger Ogden from Patriot Fire sent this on the current wall construction near San Diego, California.
The video below shows the current state of the border fence between the cities of San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico. Construction of a new 15-mile, 30-foot-high secondary fence is in progress at this time and is about half finished. A primary fence, fifteen miles long has been completed in the last couple of years. I hear these fences were both paid for by money appropriated during the Obama time and the primary fence was approved during the Obama years. That’s how slow the process is.
There was 650 miles of old fence before Trump took office. About half of it was originally intended to stop vehicles and is easy for individuals to climb over. Don’t be fooled by recent articles. Updates of a very ineffective, existing fence in a high traffic area is much, much better and more useful than building a brand new fence in a low traffic area. Updating the inadequate, old fence should occur first. There are hundreds of miles of old fence that should be a priority and needs to be replaced.
To build new fence, environmental and archaeological studies may be required and it can get hung up by lawsuits. There’s a lot more red tape for a new fence. So, don’t get discouraged, if the work right now is about updating old fence in high traffic areas. Government contracting for such infrastructure projects as this can also be painfully slow and take years. It doesn’t happen overnight.

Politicians love to pose for sound bites in front of the very best 30-foot-high sections of the border fence. However, this does not represent the real state of the 2,000-mile border fence. It has even been claimed that the border is already secure! Some of the *worst* sections of the border fence will be highlighted in this playlist, especially in areas, where there are large gaps. This will give you a better idea of the real state of the fence and the progress that is being made — or, not being made, as the case may be.
