In the first week of October, construction workers in Calexico, CA put up the final panels of a section of Trump’s new border wall. This old barrier replacement project is being publicized by President Trump as the first part of his Border Wall between Mexico and the United States!
Because this was a replacement project, to get the funding the Trump administration could not build barriers that resembled the wall prototypes in Otay Mesa. Whether the Calexico, CA barrier is part of Trump’s new border wall is still being debated.
