WASHINGTONâ€”About two miles of border wall are being built per week right now, according to Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan.
â€œ[Itâ€™s] coming along aggressively,â€ he told President Donald Trump during a meeting at the White House on June 12. â€œBy the end of next year, over 400 miles [will be built].â€
Trump predicted it might be closer to 500 miles, and said, â€œWe have to kick and scream for every inch because the Democrats just will not give us what we need.â€
New and replacement wall is currently being constructed near San Diego, as well as San Luis, Arizona, and El Paso and the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP). https://www.theepochtimes.com/dhs-2-...k_2962382.html
