Defense Department officials are scouting areas along the U.S.-Mexico border to erect new border walls, according to a Thursday CNN report.
They reportedly plan to put up 11 miles of fencing in Yuma, Arizona, and 46 miles in the “El Paso sector” which dips into New Mexico and Texas.
The construction could begin as early as May and will be funded by the $1 billion recently transferred from the Pentagon.
