Construction of a new 15-mile, 30-foot-high secondary fence is in progress between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico.
This is a brand new status paper from the US Customs Border Protection on their plans at this time to build 509 miles of border fence, wall, barrier, whatever you want to call it, with $9.8 billion in federal funding.

And Trump did this without A SINGLE VOTE from the Open Borders Democrat Party.
Roger Ogden from Patriot Fire added this on the latest funding for 509 miles of new border wall.
It seems they are completing the requirements of the Secure Fence Act of 2006 in more nearly the way it should have been done from the beginning. To do more than that would probably require a new law by Congress.
The Secure Fence Act called for almost 800 miles of fence and also for double fence. 200-300 miles of the existing fence is probably already acceptable.
Last week when Trump was at the border they said they would construct a double fence where it makes sense, that is probably areas of large urban populations and/or close to highways where illegals can be picked up.
According to Roger…
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.
