U.S. troops, along with Customs and Border Protection officers, have been working to secure sections of the Texas-Mexico border, in part by laying down barbed-wire fencing, as new photos show.

The protection reportedly includes roughly 1,000 feet of fencing along the Rio Grande.

The barrier was installed near the Hidalgo Texas Port of Entry, underneath the McAllen-Hidalgo International Bridge, which crosses the river from Texas into Mexico. A Border Patrol spokesperson said the fencing was being used as part of "necessary preparations" as four caravans, which have grown to include some 12,000 Central American migrants in all, head toward the U.S. border.

 

 

President Trump, speaking at a campaign rally in Montana on Saturday, referred to the barbed wire as "beautiful" and said that "barbed wire, used properly, can be a beautiful sight."

The Trump administration last week ordered the deployment of thousands of active-duty troops to support Customs and Border Protection Agents in Texas, Arizona and California in response to the caravans.

The president said last Wednesday that the number of troops deployed could reach 15,000, although the Pentagon put the number at 7,000 for now.

    This so-called "fence" looks like a Girl Scout merit badge project. Amateur hour. I spent 11 calendars studying the Fed razor wire as a Second Amendment political prisoner. Get the B.O.P. to lay the wire. At F.C.I.-Forth Worth, F.C.I.-Segoville, F.C.I.-Texarkana, and others they keep pre-loaded razor wire trailers which are pulled behind trucks to instantly lay a three coil barrier. 1000 feet would take about 5 minutes!

    While, I support President Trump, I'll believe that serious steps are being taken to secure the border, when I see razor wire running from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico, with armed soldiers standing behind it with orders to shoot all invaders.

    1,000 feet? It should be 1000 miles. Build the wall. Require voter ID. Stop the anchor baby idiocy. Fine businesses that employ illegals, but make it easier to get work visas. No services for non-citizens including welfare, education, social security and medicare.
