President Trump keeps promise to secure southern border as wall goes up

Sept. 19, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President Donald Trump for honoring his campaign commitment to build a border wall:

“ALG commends President Trump for continuing to fight against overwhelming odds to keep his promise to build the wall. Despite the efforts of Congressional obstructionists to keep our borders open to drug cartels and human traffickers, progress on the wall is finally being made. So far, 66 miles of border wall have been constructed to replace dilapidated barriers; 167 miles of border wall are under construction; and it’s expected that 450 miles of border wall will be completed by the end of next year. Furthermore, the 66 miles of new border wall is already proving its value: border crossings in that area have dropped by 86 percent. If the obstructionists in Congress truly cared about their constituents, they’d put aside their narrow interests and join President Trump in securing our border.”
