Border Wall Breaks Ground In Texas After Trump Awards MAJOR Contract

A big border wall contract has been awarded and construction on the wall is set to begin in Texas by February 2019.

According to WUSA9:

A $145 million contract has been awarded to start the construction of a border wall along the U.S. Mexico border in Texas.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded a contract to construct about six miles of levee wall system in the Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley sector in Hidalgo County, a CBP news release states.

The project is being funded by a share of this year’s appropriations to Customs and Border Protection. The contract was awarded to SLS Co. Ltd. on Wednesday, the release states.

Construction is scheduled to begin in February 2019.

This is a major step in getting the border wall completed, but a lot more progress is needed to secure the southern border.
