Border Patrol Chief Admits: Only About 50 Miles Of New Border FENCING (not wall) In 2018

The border patrol will get only about 50 miles of new fencing in 2018, the chief of the border patrol reluctantly acknowledged Friday.
“We appreciate what Congress has authorized,” said Ronald Vitiello, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. “There are restrictions in this appropriation … [because] Congress decided that our priorities weren’t theirs.”
“We got every dollar we asked for [in May 2017], but it is configured in a kind of different way,” he acknowledged.

That bipartisan cooperation minimizes barriers to the northward flow of cheap labor and also weakens President Donald Trump’s support among his populist voters.
