Are you tired of winning yet?

AZFamily/Associated Press:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Construction has begun on the fifth border wall project of Donald Trump’s presidency, replacing up to 14 miles of barrier in San Diego.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday that the first panels are in place to replace a steel-mesh fence with steel bollards up to 30 feet high. SLSCO Ltd. of Galveston, Texas, was awarded the $101 million contract in December.

It is the second layer of barrier in San Diego. Work on replacing the first layer is nearly complete, which is also 14 miles long and made of steel bollards up to 30 feet high.

Construction began three days after Trump declared a national emergency to build his proposed border wall with Mexico. Lawsuits have been filed over the emergency declaration.According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, construction began on Monday, February 17, and replaces mesh fencing along 14 miles of the border, stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the Otay Mountain area.

    That’s great. It will be a thing of beauty to all who love America.

    Getting the stupid laws changed will be an impossibility for at least two years when hopefully/prayerfully President Trump’s blowout re-election will bring with it a majority in the House and more gains in the Senate. If only the Democrats cared about drug and human trafficking and people coming into our land in order to take advantage of us and our system…but evil is as evil does.
