Trump Has Started His Wall — New Barrier Begins Construction in Calif.

With all the talk of President Donald Trump’s border wall being built and Democrats saying it won’t, the government has just announced that some border wall construction has already started.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection noted on Tuesday that work has started on new barriers at the U.S. border with Mexico in San Diego, California.

New wall construction in California… that sure must stick in the Democrats’ craw!

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 high. SLSCO Ltd. of Galveston, Texas, was awarded the $101 million contract in December.

“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,” the AP added.

The construction began only three days after President Trump declared a national emergency on our southern border.

Trump toured the are on Wednesday.

In a tweet, the president wrote, “We have just built this powerful Wall in New Mexico. Completed on January 30, 2019 – 47 days ahead of schedule! Many miles more now under construction!”

As Daily Caller reported:

Trump signed into law an appropriations bill earlier in February that doles out $1.375 billion for 55 miles of new wall, an amount immigration hardliners said was not enough. However, the president then took the controversial step on Feb. 15 of declaring a national emergency, which allowed him to allocate a total of about $8 billion in federal funds

And what are Democrats doing? Like always they are stampeding to corrupt, left-wing courts to force their will on America:

A coalition of 16 states, led by California, filed suit against the president on Monday in an attempt to strike down the crisis declaration. A number of liberal organizations, such as the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Biological Diversity, have also leveled suits against the administration.

Just like liberals to use lawfare instead of winning at the voting booth.
