Construction on the borer wall in New Mexico is scheduled to begin next month. 

According to the Albuquerque Journal, the majority of the construction will replace vehicle barriers with new structures that are 18 to 30 feet tall. The Army Corps of Engineers in Albuquerque awarded $789 million to a Texas-based construction company to build the border barriers in New Mexico.

The Trump administration’s declaration calls for $1 billion  to be diverted from military projects to build 57 miles of barriers, 46 of those miles are in New Mexico’s Doña Ana and Luna counties.
