The Trump administration is putting up about a mile of border wall per day with a goal of reaching 450 miles by the end of next year, according to the Pentagon.
“Right now we’re at a pace of about a mile a day. And we’ll see that continue to go up,” said Pentagon Chief Spokesman Jonathan Hoffman during a press briefing Thursday.
President Trump traveled to the southwest earlier this week to view progress on the border wall…
Hoffman also announced Thursday that nearly all of the $2.5 billion military counter-drug money that was allocated to the border wall in February has been obligated and is now on contract, and that the rest of that money, $3 million, would be obligated next week. That $2.5 billion will go towards border projects in New Mexico, Arizona, and California.
