A 30-foot fence high spanning two miles has been constructed at the Mexico-US border.
Sporting a plaque that boasted President Donald Trump‘s name, it marks the first phase of a wall to block migrants from entering the US.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen inaugurated the Calexico site in Imperial City, California Friday.
She warned ‘everything is on the table’ as the administration considered new measures to send a message to a dwindling and slow-moving migrant caravan from Honduras. It is currently 990 miles away from McAllen, Texas
