GNN Note – Promises made – promises kept. #Winning
Construction crews in New Mexico began work on a 46-mile stretch of replacement border walls. The project is reportedly funded with Department of Defense resources diverted by the Trump Administration under a national emergency declaration.
The construction company set forth on a contract to replace a 46-mile section of border fencing with a taller bollard wall. The project is running from Columbus, New Mexico, to Santa Teresa along the border that separates the state from Chihuahua, Mexico, KVIA, ABC7 reported.
The U.S. Supreme Court recently overturned a lower court’s ruling that blocked the use of diverted funds, Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak reported in July. The ruling freed approximately $2.5 billion for construction.
