The third and newest border wall construction in California has begun with a state-of-the-art plan to secure the US-Mexico boundary along San Diego County’s Border Field State Park, as the promises of President Trump to secure the United States of America have come to fruition.
The current security that's in place along Border Field State Park has been in place since the 1990s, where Vietnam-era scrap metal was used to erect protection near a once-popular point of entry for illegal aliens.
Plans for the new structure include the requirements set forth by the Trump Administration to be anywhere between 18 and 30 feet tall, with the current wall only being 10 feet high.
As an extra layer of security, the new wall is equipped with an anti-climbing system of security, that all-but-guarantees the effectiveness of the project.
The new structure is estimated to cost $147 million, with the Texas-based construction company SLSCO operating the project that begins a half-mile from the Pacific Ocean heading east into the bottom of Otay Mountain in East County.

Border Field State Park has historically been a high-traffic entry point for illegal aliens, who then vanish into the nearby marshes and hiking trails to avoid apprehension by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.
“The construction of this new substantial wall will improve overall border security, the safety and effectiveness of Border Patrol agents, the safety of the public, and will enhance the atmosphere for business and commerce in the area,” Rodney Scott, the Chief Patrol Agent for the San Diego Sector said.
“Under this President’s leadership, we have a renewed commitment to secure our border,” Ronald Vitiello, the US Customs and Border Protection’s Acting Deputy Commissioner said. “The new primary wall-project represents an important milestone in our work to secure the international border. Not only does it significantly upgrade our existing infrastructure in San Dieg buto, it also marks the third concurrent wall project in the U.S. and reflects CBP’s unwavering commitment to secure our borders and protect our Nation.”
With approximately 1,800 federal agents and mission support personnel, 240 aircraft, and 300 marine vessels operating throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands, Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) Air and Marine Operations (AMO) conducts its mission in the air and maritime environments at and beyond the border, and within the nation's interior, with the newest wall giving those agents and personnel the ability to place their focus on other regions and high-traffic entry points.
In just the fiscal-year of 2017, CBP AMO were responsible for the approximate seizure or disruption of 269,790 pounds of cocaine; 384,230 pounds of marijuana; 5,721 pounds of methamphetamine; 1,089 weapons and $26.1 million; 2,573 arrests and 37,009 apprehensions of illegal aliens.
These threats are being stopped on a daily basis, as countless men and women of the United States of America's Customs and Border Protection risk their lives to ensure our nation remains safe from the would-be threats of illegal aliens and their desire to flood this nation with crime and narcotics.
