    US prepares to start building portion of Texas border wall

    HOUSTON (AP) — The U.S. government is preparing to begin construction of more border walls and fencing in South Texas' Rio Grande Valley, likely on federally owned land set aside as wildlife refuge property.

    Congress last March approved more than $600 million for 33 miles (53 kilometers) of new barriers in the Rio Grande Valley. While President Donald Trump and top Democrats remain in a standoff over Trump's demand for $5.7 billion in border wall funding, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has pushed ahead with building what's already funded.

    Democrats are NOT against border security, especially around legal ports of entry where the real issue exists. However a wall across open desert is a no go from the git go.

    But let the tRumpers note the funding comes from Congress and not some tRump faux emergency...

    Some Trump resistors simply don't want to hear about good news for the country even if congressmen from their own party agree with Trump on border security.

    “Give Trump the money,” Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) says. “Why are we fighting over this?”

    “There are gaps” along the border, Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) explains. “For many of us, there’s not really doubt that some kind of physical barrier is necessary.”

    “Where folks say we need additional barrier protections, I’m all for it,” Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) says.

    “I will vote for efforts to secure our Southern border that are done in an effective and efficient way,” Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) tweets. “And if that includes additional physical barriers, then I would support that.”

    Re: US prepares to start building portion of Texas border wall

    This is funding that relates back to the 2006 Border Fence Act. This is not a new Appropriation. This is the same money that has been used for repair and refurbishment and closing gaps.

    There has been no new Appropriations for extending Human Physical Border Barrier beyond what came out of the 2006 Act and no viable Appropriations process oriented effort by this Administration or GOP members of Congress to gain Appropriations for new Human Physical Border Barrier on the Southern Border.

    So the correct description of this activity is the final pieces or THE END if you will of the 2006 Act. Its not a preparation to "start" to build a portion of Trump's Wall.

    Dead giveaway: They must use construction techniques that have already been approved through that original authorization as in Bollard or sheet steel or slats or chain link or Normandy.
