fa297f2d

Trump administration has spent $9 billion to build about 585 miles of wall.

Trump's border wall of 575 miles has costed over $20 million per mile and a total of $11 billion as of January, 2020.

Trump's border wall of 575 miles has costed over $20 million per mile and a total of $11 billion as of January, 2020. The $9 billion cost of the border wall is an underestimation. According to a status report released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which is overseeing wall construction, it has cost more than $11 billion to construct 576 miles of the new proposed border wall since Trump took office. The report also identified that every mile has cost $20 million to build in addition to the 270 additional miles of border wall that will be required to combat drug trafficking.

Therefore, $9 billion dollars is an underestimation of the current and future costs of Trumps border wall project. Furthermore, Trump administration has requested $2 billion to construct additional border wall along the U.S. Southwest border, strengthen and enforce U.S. immigration laws, and respond to and recover from major disasters and large-scale emergencies in the budget for the financial year 2021.
