Ground has been broken officially and the promise made by President Trump to build the Border Wall has began!
Construction has started in San Diego today with four of the new prototypes being made of concrete and the other four designs being made of alternate materials.
Ronald Vitiello, Acting Deputy Commissioner of the United States Customs and Border Protection said, “We are committed to securing our border and that includes constructing border walls. Our multi-pronged strategy to ensure the safety and security of the American people includes barriers, infrastructure, technology and people.”

“Moving forward with the prototypes enables us to continue to incorporate all the tools necessary to secure our border,” said Vitiello.
The newly designed prototypes are between 18 and 30 feet tall, and they're designed not only to deter and reinforce America's Borders, but to assist the United States Border Patrol as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement by reducing the workload of them having to physically monitor the United States of America's Border with Mexico.
Completion of the new prototype’s own constructions respectively will take a maximum of thirty days.
Access to the construction site will be halted during this time period which will be enforced by both the San Diego Police Department and County Sheriff’s Deputies who will continue to secure the premises where the prototypes are being built.

Both water tankers and work crews could be seen going into the construction site in an extraordinary display of promise towards Making America Great Again with clouds of dirt and dust floating into the in excitement of watching the wall begin its first initial growth.
Various crews have been maintaining the location in preparation for the construction for several week by installing chain link fences around the perimeter of the work zone, blocking access to roads with concrete barriers, installing high tech security cameras to monitor the grounds, as well as marking designated parking zones for both Government Officials and work crews who have the honor and privilege of being the first men and women to partake in building America's new border wall.

Law enforcement agencies say the do indeed anticipate heavy protests in the Southern California area where the liberal and marxist mentality seems to be prevalent in society.
Customs and Border Patrol said they do welcome people exercising their Constitutional Rights to peacefully protest and have set up designated areas for them to do so as to not interfere in the construction or endanger Government Employees or crews on the ground.

Whether the Communists like it or not, that wall is going up and it's gonna be yuge. It will however have a big and beautiful door for immigrants to come in but they're going to have to come in legally.
The location is around 1.5 miles East of Erico Fermi Drive, which is to be built upon open lands that Federal officials say is including a mixture of both public and private ownership.
It is several miles east of the Otay Mesa Port of Entry in a spot where the existing mesh secondary fence ends and a single barrier continues into the desert.
There have so far been no protests but the County Board of Supervisors Tuesday in anticipation of such passed an ordinance to give the county the power to create special zones where knives, sticks, bats, pepper spray, bricks, and other possible weapons are temporarily prohibited.

“The danger to public safety, health, and welfare posed by the presence of such items has been demonstrated from Charlottesville, Virginia to Berkeley, California,” a memo from County lawyers to the Supervisors said.
The ordinance is designed to be effective immediately and will grant the County's Chief Administrative Officer to put in place “Temporary Area Restrictions” alongside what's deemed as unincorporated land of the County in order to secure the premises and prevent violence.
Supervisor Dianne Jacob said that the ordinance was passed unanimously in order to secure the safety of the community and those who would come from elsewhere to exercise their right to protest.
“This is a divisive time in our nation’s history. And frankly, we already have a border fence in San Diego so I am not sure why we were targeted to do the prototypes here in San Diego. I think Texas would have been more appropriate, but it is what it is today,” Jacob said.
Customs and Border Control said that the four contractors for the concrete prototypes are Caddell Construction Co., of Montgomery, Alabama, Fisher Sand & Gravel Co., of Tempe, Arizona, Texas Sterling Construction Co., of Houston, Texas, and W. G. Yates & Sons Construction Company, of Biloxi, Mississippi.
According to the companies both Caddell and W.G. Yates are also constructing promising walls that are made of “other materials,” alongside KWR Construction, Inc., of Sierra Vista, Arizona, and ELTA North America Inc., of Annapolis Junction, Maryland.
The CBP said that their initial bids ranged between $300,000 to $500,000 each.
Once this prototype zone has been completed, CBP will then select a winning design.
The project is underway despite the lack of Congressional funding for President Donald Trump’s promised border wall, which would be constructed along portions of the U.S.-Mexico border.
