You probably haven't noticed it, but Mr. Trump's fantastically successful border wall has just received a major addition.

and stretching for over 3,800 m. this high-tech barrier has totally stopped 100% of all people who are attempting to illegally invade the US from Mexico where this magnificent section of the wall has been installed.

Sleep safe America, Mr. Trump is watching out for you.

I live near the border and it is in fact coming along nicely.....looked at it with my own eyes and its really impressive!......and the CBP agents I've talked to say it has really helped in the areas it has gone up.....

Finally we have a president taking border security seriously!

It is the boarder between Canada and the US, meant to stop vehicle traffic crossing over the ditch.

It was poorly done or not complete as the wires should be taut

The top pic looks like 0 Avenue in Surrey, my home town. The fence is new, I think, there used to just be little waist-high aluminum obelisks every quarter mile or so. It's like the Canadians and Americans across the street are neighbours. Was like, anyway.

If you're in decent shape it would take me maybe 3 minutes to teach you to climb that.

That part looks to be not finished...the finished parts I've seen have about a six ft solid panel at the top with nothing to grab or hold onto......I heard they hired some professional climbers to test it and they could get to the panel at the top but no further.....

While I doubt any barrier can be 100%....this thing looks 99% to me....I've been within about a block or so away and it looks really tall and intimidating....

A six-foot panel at the top would need solving but a structural Ironworker, a connector, who couldn't climb what's in that pic would be headed for the parking lot with his belt over his shoulder.

Dude...we don't care if illegal aliens in the US want to cross the border into your country. If you don't want that to happen, then build your own wall.

If you don't care, then why did the US government build it?

My French is rusty, But I believe this is the Canadian border. Good job stopping the Mexicans coming in.:lamo

On the plus side, a Canadian Judge just ruled that Canada can't kick Mexican/Central American asylum seekers out for crossing that border, so there is little preventing their entry into the country, thankfully.

Didn't you read your own article?

In an email, a spokesperson for the United States Border Patrol said the fencing was built to keep vehicles from crashing across the border either accidentally or intentionally.

Okay, you're not following.

I'm sure parts of the wall are being built, that is not fake. It is your story about the wall, and your relationship with it that he is calling bull****.

I mean, your responses so far are pretty suspect.

Lmao.

I actually think you want them with some slack. Point is to slow down and stop vehicles gradually so no one is injured.

The wall is poorly designed it has been shown to topple in high winds as it is bolted onto concrete ...... what is needed is a section of the lower wall be below ground level by 3 feet with a T-shape lower bottom and at least 2 feet of concrete poured around the base to properly anchor it ......to stop the wall being top heavy thus the bolts can't handle the strain of being hit by strong winds
