Trump calls for 700 miles to 900 miles of border wall

15 Juillet 2017

Picking up on the theme laid out by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and other border experts and agents, Trump spoke about the need for any border barrier to allow agents to see the other side.

This Thursday, President Trump and his administration revealed their intentions of planning to make the widely popular US-Mexico wall, a solar wall. As awful as it sounds, when they throw large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don't see them. The second bid notice called for other types of walls, including something that could be seen through.

"You have to be able to see through it", he said.

Mr Rozental estimated there was a less than 20% chance that this wall - as he calls it - will ever be built.

"One of the things with the wall is you need transparency", Trump said.

The frontier, which stretches across four U.S. states, already has 600 miles of fences and walls, although the President admits some some areas need replacement or fix.

Although, the Republican House leaders were finally able to get a $1.6 billion funding approved for the construction of the wall, it to be noted that the much promised wall has been long delayed and that President Trump is doing everything he can to make up for the fact.

President Donald Trump doesn't see the need for a proposed border wall to stretch the length of the roughly 2,000-mile (3,218 kilometer) frontier with Mexico.

Trump also acknowledged Thursday that "violent and vicious" rivers and natural barriers along the southern border likely mean that the wall will not cover the full stretch, which is almost 2,000 miles. "It's over", Trump said. You have some areas that are so far away that you don't really have people crossing.

He has since said he will find a way for Mexico to repay the United States for construction of the wall but that Congress would need to fund it first. He added, "So in a true sense, we've already started the wall".

"Look, he's trying to create a victory out of nothing because he knows it's going to be almost impossible to get funding for a wall, and he knows his supporters are so dogmatic they're just going to accept any lie that he says as truth", stated Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.).
