Several days after President Donald Trump declared a national emergency, construction began on the fifth border wall project of his administration.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Tuesday that work has started  on replacing 14 miles of a steel-mesh fence along the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego, The Associated Press reported. The fence is being replaced with 30-foot high steel bollards. It is actually the second layer of barrier to be put up in the area, with the first layer nearly complete.
SLSCO Ltd., a company located in Galveston, Texas, scored the $101 million contract in December 2018. The Trump administration has already awarded around $1 billion in contracts to cover 97 miles of the southern border, with the project in San Diego being one of the latest.
Trump touted the construction Wednesday of a border wall in New Mexico.
