The United States Customs and Border Patrol Agency released official footage of more than 60 miles of new border wall over the weekend; confirming the federal government plans on building more than 450 miles of fencing by the end of 2020.

“Construction crews continue work on the new border wall system along the SW border near San Luis, AZ. In partnership with @USACEHQ, CBP has constructed over 60 miles of new border wall system along the SW border since 2017 and expects to complete 450 miles by the end of 2020,” posted the CBP on Twitter.

“Today, CBP has a triple-layered enforcement zone which includes an 18’ bollard wall,” it added.

“Construction is expected to take about 45 days. The U.S. government then plans to tackle other projects in Arizona, including nearly 40 miles of fencing in other parts of the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and areas of Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge and San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area,” reports Fox News. “Workers also broke ground Friday for construction between Columbus and Santa Teresa — small towns near ports of entry along the border between New Mexico and the state of Chihuahua, Mexico.”
