Trump Wall begins construction along US-Mexico Border

Featured Trump Wall begins construction along US-Mexico Border
Washington, Feb 22 (Prensa Latina) The U.S. government started work on a section of the wall in the border between California and Mexico, replacing a barrier made in the decade of 1990, according to media reports published today.
The reports confirm it is the first building contract of a border wall awarded during the presidency of Donald Trump, based on the eight prototypes built last year in San Diego.

Since his campaign to win the White House, Trump insists on the construction of a wall on the limit line between both countries, purpose that gains rejection inside and out of the United States.

Through that Project, the U.S. Office of Customs and Border Protection will replace a little over three kilometers of the barrier in the city of Calexico, California, adjacent to Mexicali, Mexico.

Last November, the company SWF Constructors, of Omaha, Nebraska, won a contract for 18 million dollars to carry out this work in the mentioned zone.

According to the sources, the works in an area divided in two by the New river, whose waters serve for the smuggling of people, will last 10 months.

A law of 2005, they recalled, could exempt this Wall from the environmental regulations if the Department of Homeland Security had in mind the protection of the country above all.

Also, the Trump government emitted exemptions to build a similar barrier in San Diego and Santa Teresa, New Mexico.

For its part, the state of California and environmentalist groups, have presented demands against the federal administration due to those privileges, as they allege their authority expired.
