‘Walls work … it’s a fact’: DHS unveils section of Trump’s border wall as caravan advances through Mexico

As the migrant caravan continues its path to the north, a section of President Donald  Trump’s new border wall was just unveiled in California.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was on hand at the El Centro Sector near Calexico on Friday to note the completion of a portion of the border wall, according to Fox News.

“We are looking at every possible way within the legal construct that we have to make sure that those who don’t have the legal right to come to this country do not come in,” Nielsen said in front of the 30-foot, two-mile fence along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Looking at this, I would not attempt to climb it,” she added.

“Let me be clear: Walls work, it’s not my opinion,” Nielsen said at the ceremony. “It’s not a tag line. It’s not a political statement. It’s a fact.”

The White House is reportedly looking at possible administrative, legal and legislative measures to slow, and perhaps prevent, the illegal immigrants from crossing over the U.S. border. Hundreds of U.S. troops were also reportedly being ordered to the southern border to assist Border Patrol.

“This is the wall system we are requesting Congress to fund,” Nielsen said, and later responded to questions.

“We have made the request to Congress,” she said. “Whatever Congress does we are prepared to continue to focus on those areas … But we do need the wall so we continue to ask Congress for additional funds.”

In an appearance on Fox News’ “The Story With Martha MacCallum” Thursday, Nielsen said “everything is on the table” as far as border security.

“If they come here illegally with no legitimate reason to stay, they absolutely will be apprehended and removed immediately,” Nielsen said. “Everything is on the table to make it very clear that we have a sovereign right to protect our citizens.”
