New Mexico isn’t the only location where new border barriers are being built. San Diego is currently building barriers along the border as well. Check out what Fox News Denver reported.
Construction has begun on the fifth border wall project of Donald Trump’s presidency, replacing up to 14 miles of barrier in San Diego, authorities said Tuesday.
The first panels are in place to replace a steel-mesh fence with 30-foot-high steel bollards, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
SLSCO Ltd. of Galveston, Texas, was awarded a $101 million contract in December, with options for an additional $30 million.
The bollards replace a second layer of barrier that worked like a fortress when it was built about a decade ago but is now often breached with powerful battery-operated saws sold in home improvement stores.
Work on replacing a first layer of San Diego barrier is nearly complete, also 14 miles long and made of steel bollards up to 30-feet high.
“Outlined in the National Emergencies Act of 1976, the president has the authority to declare emergencies, thus unlocking certain provisions, when the country is ‘threatened by crisis, exigency, or emergency circumstances’ other than wars or natural disasters, a 2007 report from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) explains,” Fox News reported. “Some of those provisions include the ability to seize commodities or property; control production, transportation and communication; institute martial law or restrict travel, according to the report.”
Democrats immediately sought to discredit Trump calling for a national emergency by suggesting that there is no “emergency” on the border, despite the hundreds of thousands of people who are apprehended every year illegally trying to enter the U.S. on the southern border.
ouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump on Thursday that a future Democratic president could declare a national emergency to achieve an agenda, such as gun control policy.
