450 Miles Of Border Wall To Be Finished By End Of Year
CBP: TRUMP ADMINSTRATION ON TRACK TO BUILD 450 MILES OF BORDER WALL BY END OF 2020
(CNN) – The Trump administration says it’s on track to build 450-miles of its border wall by the end of the year.
That’s the goal that the White House set last year.
The Customs and Border Protection now says that 446-miles have been completed as of Monday.
However, 370-miles of that involves replacing old barriers that had already existed.
The Trump administration has set aside about $15-billion for the project along the Mexican border.
That would be enough to complete more than 700 miles of the wall.
But president-elect Joe Biden has pledged to put the brakes on the construction when he takes office.
