450 Miles of Border Wall Completed

Last panel set in place in the Yuma sector.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced on Tuesday the completion of 450 miles of the barrier wall on the United States-Mexico border prior to the end of 2020. The agency reported that the final panel of the 107 mile Yuma sector was set in place on December 21st. The towering bollard-style wall allows visibility on either side of the barrier where the previous solid panel fencing did not.

“The Yuma area was an area of high illegal entries being guided by transnational criminal organizations who exploited and took advantage of our outdated and even dilapidated infrastructure,” said Special Operations Supervisor Vincent Dulesky. “Now we have this new Border Wall, combined with extra technology that will enable the Yuma Sector to maintain operational control.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan as he oversees the agency.
  • For the border officers as they seek to protect the U.S. from transnational crime.
  • For Acting Secretary Chad Wolf as he leads the Department of Homeland Security.
