(26 Oct 2018) U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen unveiled two new miles of border fencing on Friday and declared it the first new section of the President Donald Trump's border wall. The wall celebrated Friday replaces shorter, older fencing installed in the 1990s that was now out of date and operationally inadequate, Nielsen said. After she arrived, two workers installed a plaque displaying Trump's name, atop the names of several border officials. The plaque reads: "This plaque was installed on October 26, 2018, to commemorate the completion of the first section of President Trump's border wall." The government has built eight border wall prototypes in California — some concrete, some like the fences they unveiled Friday — and unveiled them earlier this year. This year's congressional spending bill specifically states that border construction must use the same kind of fencing previous administrations had used. The wall celebrated Friday replaces shorter, older fencing installed in the 1990s that was now out of date and operationally inadequate, Nielsen said.
