The Trump administration marked a milestone for its border wall construction project on Friday by announcing completion of the 100th mile of bollard fencing outside Yuma, Arizona.
Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, joined by Senator Martha McSally and Yuma Mayor Doug Nicholls, announced the 100th mile of new border wall and commemorated it with a special plaque mounted on the fencing.
“Every inch of the 100 miles that we have constructed is new border wall system. It’s not so-called replacement wall as some of our critics claimed. It is new wall,” Wolf told attendees at a press conference.
