The construction of a Southern border wall served as one of President Trump’s central promises to the American people during the 2016 election. Since the president’s time in office, he’s remained committed to seeing this promise through, despite the Democrat Party doing everything they can to thwart the enforcement of legal immigration.
While the Southern border wall is already under construction, there is still much work to be done. Reports from Breitbart News confirm that Jared Kushner, White House adviser and son-in-law to President Trump, is now project manager of the Southern border wall’s development.
These same reports moreover state that Kushner aims to have at least 400 miles of the wall built by November 2020.
A Close Review of Kushner’s Involvement as Border Wall Project Manager
The president’s son-in-law is responsible for being up-to-date on how the wall is coming along and precise steps of progress which are being made. As such, Kushner conducts West Wing meetings with various government aides every two weeks.
During the aforementioned meetings, Kushner is briefed about the manner of spent capital, new developments on contractor data, construction-related progress and more. The president’s son-in-law also communicates the expectations of the president with meeting attendees.
Kushner’s assignment as the border wall project manager comes after previous figureheads have dragged their feet. To date, there is approximately 70-74 miles of a physical barrier at the Southern border between American and Mexico. Unfortunately, progress on the border wall faced significant stagnations between 2017 and 2018.
The Need for the Wall
New leadership regarding the construction of the Southern border wall comes at a pivotal time.
As the primary season of the 2020 presidential election plays out, virtually all Democrat candidates have come out in favor of open borders and decriminalizing border crossings; the one exception to this is Tulsi Gabbard. Gabbard has expressed the need to secure the nation’s borders on multiple occasions; however, the same cannot be said for her in-party rivals.
Now, more than ever, the construction of the wall is absolutely imperative. Contrary to what the Democrats would have Americans believe, the enforcement of legal immigration is imperative to preserving the liberties and greatness of this nation.
