Crews install final panel of new primary border wall project

OTAY MESA (KUSI) – Crews at the US-Mexico border placed the final panel in the primary border wall project Friday.

The acting Chief of the San Diego Sector Border Patrol, Agent Kathleen Scudder, delivered opening remarks as workers placed the last panel.

The project was started by the Trump administration in 2017.

The Border Patrol is touting the increased situational awareness this will give their agents and the height of the new section of the border wall.

Agent Kathleen Scudder also said she expects this to be more of a deterrent than the previous model.
