The Trump administration announced Friday that it has completed the first 100 miles of the president's promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf said:

"As of today, we have completed the first 100 miles of new border wall system on the southwest border. New wall has been constructed in every border state from California to Texas. This is a milestone for our entire country, and this would not have been possible without the President's steadfast determination and leadership. The new border wall system is an undeniable impediment to human smugglers, drug traffickers, and other criminals who have exploited our lack of effective border infrastructure to smuggle drugs, people and illegal contraband into our country. The President listened to his operators on the front lines and is fulfilling his promise to secure the border."
