Calexico Border Fence Status – December 2019

Report on status of the Border Fence being constructed in the Calexico area in California for December, 2019. Fifteen miles of 30-foot high, primary fence is to be constructed in Calexico. The previous fence was mainly old landing mat fence and a much smaller bollard wall, which I call mini-bollards.

Then and Now – by San Diego Border Patrol

THEN AND NOW – A video that shows how a border fence caused dramatic change in San Diego during the 1990’s. The Border was at one time in chaos. It was still not totally secure after the first fence was constructed, because the old barrier was far from perfect, but about 90% better. The reduction in crime and smuggling has improved the neighborhoods on both sides of the border. This video was produced by the local Customs and Border Protection sector command in San Diego.

NOTE: The decline in arrests of illegal crossers shown in the graph is only for San Diego, not for the entire border. Much of the illegal crossing moved to other parts of the border, where it was easier to cross. The entire border needs to be secured, not just certain parts of it.
