Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced the public launch of a border wall system webpage that features construction video and an interactive map. The border wall system webpage will give the American people a first-hand look at its construction and the border wall system’s impact on our national security.

“President Trump is delivering on his promise to build a border wall system to secure the border,” said Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan. “Border security is national security and a strong border wall system is critical to keeping our nation safe.”

The border wall system is a critical tool for Border Patrol agents—it helps slow or stop those who attempt to illegally cross into the United States, giving our agents time to respond and make an arrest. The border wall system’s effectiveness also goes beyond the barrier itself, to include the roads, lighting, and technology that help our agents secure the border.

The border wall system webpage provides a new and innovative look into the border wall system, which anyone with internet access can view. It includes construction video, interactive maps, and graphics to keep the public informed on current construction progress.

The webpage www.cbp.gov/borderwallsystem includes:

- ADVERTISEMENT -

• Video and drone footage of construction of the border wall system across miles of the border.

• Interactive map that allows users to zoom in on new border wall construction projects.

• Infographic of border wall system construction.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation’s borders at and between official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
