When President Donald Trump first launched his 2016 election campaign, he promised to rebuild America, starting with the construction of a border wall between the US and Mexico. The Trump campaign team said that it was still confident that the president would reach his goal of overseeing the construction of 450 miles of border barrier before 2020's end. Despite the Trump campaign's confidence, however, even CBP's current leadership has expressed doubt that the administration will be able to meet its ambitious goal. As 2019 comes to a close, the president has so far only managed to build just 98 miles of his promised border barriers.

US Customs and Border Protection agency said that as of December 27th, the Trump administration had overseen the construction of 98 miles of new border wall system.

Construction on brand new barriers is currently underway. However, crews will still need to see a total of 352 miles built before the end of 2020 if Trump wants to make good on his long-held promise.
