60+ miles of new border security wall complete 100’s more in progress

Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan touted Tuesday the progress of the “new border wall system” being built in Arizona.

“What was there was old, dilapidated, ineffective and it didn’t work,” Morgan told “Fox & Friends.” “Every mile that’s being built is absolutely a new wall and it’s not just a wall,” he said.

Host Brian Kilmeade noted that Axios reported that “not a single mile of wall has been built where no barrier previously existed” and that a DHS official failed to explain “when the first section of ‘new’ wall would be built.”

Morgan responded that the report’s characterization of the border wall situation is “absolutely wrong,” saying the wall system includes not just a physical barrier, but also “integrated lighting, technology and access roads.”

Drone footage released by the Border Patrol over the weekend shows miles of a “new border wall system” going up at a location in Arizona, near where illegal immigrants were seen streaming into America years ago.
