First Panels Built on Trump’s Wall
The first panels of the Santa Teresa Border Wall Replacement Project have been installed west of the Santa Teresa Port of Entry, near El Paso, on the U.S.-Mexico border, U.S. authorities said.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection said that the project was instigated by presidential executive order and was expected to cost about $73.3 million.
The planned 390-day project involves replacing a 20-mile stretch of existing vehicle barriers with 18-to-30-foot high bollard-style walls, authorities said.
