Completed Projects:

El Paso #1

El Paso #2

El Paso #4

Under Construction:

El Paso #3

Overview:


To begin to meet the need for additional border infrastructure in this area, DHS is replacing legacy vehicle barriers that no longer meet the Border Patrol’s operation needs with new bollard wall.

The ability to see through into Mexico is a concept supported by the bollard style wall included in this project. This style of wall has proved beneficial to the Border Patrol to detect illegal entries and the smuggling of narcotics into the United States.

El Paso Sector continues to experience a high number of apprehensions of illegal immigrants and drug smuggling. In fiscal year 2017, the El Paso Sector apprehended 25,193 illegal aliens, seized 34,189 pounds of marijuana and 140 pounds of cocaine. During that fiscal year, there were 54 assaults against El Paso Sector agents.

Leadership within the El Paso Sector has made great efforts to collaborate with local and state authorities to address any issues that may occur during the construction period.

Concerns regarding the environment have been and are constantly being addressed to cover all bases during this process. For years, the Border Patrol has worked diligently with supporting agencies to ensure its presence minimally disturbs the surrounding environment and habitat.

The operational control of the border is of highest priority for El Paso Sector Border Patrol agents, and with the construction of the replacement wall, agents will be better equipped to complete their mission.

 El Paso Wall #4

Overview:

The first privately-funded border wall project was built in Sunland Park, New Mexico just outside of El Paso, Texas on June 3, 2019. It stretches just under a mile and has stopped 100% of illegal crossings. The property owner is an 85 year old Vietnam veteran fighter pilot who was forced to live in fear every single day on his property.  Over 100 illegal aliens crossed onto his land each day in the first half of 2019. The US Army Corps of Engineers denied him a wall, they said it was impossible to build a wall up Mt. Cristo Rey where his property was located. They also stated the mountain was a”natural barrier”.

He had a major problem, and We Build The Wall, Inc had the solution.

The barrier system utilizes a multi-tiered high tech system to detect and deter would be illegal aliens from crossing. US Border Patrol Agents praise the high tech system as the most advanced border wall on the entire US Border which also goes up a whopping 31% grade.

No one can get within 100′ of this barrier without triggering advanced warning systems. It merges brute steel with high tech systems to create the most comprehensive security security wall in the United States. And it’s only possible because American’s keep believing in us with their generous donations. Donate here!
