(Worthy News) - Homeland Security began building a border wall in New Mexico on Monday, moving to replace vehicle barriers and outdated mesh fencing with a modern wall that will deter pedestrians attempting to cross in the remove desert west of El Paso.

The 20-mile project has been on the books for some time and the contract was awarded in January, but officials said President Trump gets the credit for making it happen.

The announcement came the same day as 225 National Guard troops deployed in neighboring Arizona, backing up Mr. Trump’s order last week that could send as many as 4,000 troops to the southwest to help with surveillance, construction and other support tasks. Texas also joined in Monday, as Gov. Greg Abbott said he’d quadruple the number of Guard troops on the border, from 250 to at least 1,000. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
