Not single new mile of wall has been constructed despite Trump's lies

From the conservatives' second favorite quotable Washington paper (after Rev. Moon's Times):

The Trump administration has not installed a single mile of new wall in a previously fenceless part of the U.S.-Mexico border in the 30 months since President Trump assumed office, despite his campaign promise to construct a “big beautiful wall.”

In a statement last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the federal agency overseeing border barrier construction, confirmed that all the fencing completed since Trump took office is "in place of dilapidated designs" because the existing fence was in need of replacement

... In Trump’s two and a half years in office, his administration has installed an average 1.7 miles of barrier per month, and none of it in areas that did not previously have some sort of barrier. A total 205 miles of new and replacement barrier has been funded in the two and a half years since Trump took office.

2. What?

The left doesn't want open borders. You just think they do because you want some reason to hate them.
It's not true at all.
No new wall has been built. and you can't blame the Left because he had both houses and still couldn't get it done because he's a terrible deal maker.
This is just more proof that Trump talks a lot but does very little. As long as he's on camera.

3. You must have missed the dem presidential debates...

In which numerous candidates stated support for decriminalization of unauthorized crossing of our borders.

What do you think "open borders" means, if not that?

And you must have missed all the attacks on ICE and border patrol all coming from the left.

You also missed Beto saying he'd tear down existing border wall.

In short, you're either lying, or plainly ignorant of the subject matter.

9. They focus grouped "Open Borders" and found out it pisses most Americans off

So they "just" refuse to fund any border security, humanitarian aid, they demand that ICE and the Border Patrol be abolished and crossing decriminalized.

They want all that, but will never be honest enough to say "Open Borders" out loud.

But I honestly believe that some Lefties are so fucking stupid, they actually believe all those things have nothing to do with Open Borders.

6. Sure looks like they do.

Name one policy put forth by democrats that would stop illegal border crossings.

Abolish ICE?

Sanctuary cities?

I do blame the left for everything they have done.

Or you are a liar.
Actions speak louder than words and the only action taken by the left is to keep the borders wide open.

No updates? Odd if not. I'd have to call BS if so. Remember the recent news about the Obama appointed judge who blocked wall funding?

They're the ones who confirmed that all construction to date has been to REPLACE EXISTING wall, and no new wall has been constructed where there was none before.

"Not single new mile of wall has been constructed despite Trump's lies"

VS.

"In Trump’s two and a half years in office, his administration has installed an average 1.7 miles of barrier per month"

28. There is no lie, just reading comprehension problems on your part

Both statements are true- There have been many miles of old wall replaced, and Trump has lied about the Construction covering new ground when he says “we’re building a big beautiful wall along the entire southern border”, among other statements that claim or imply that previously unwalled border areas now have had a wall erected.

That is demonstrably false statement, so my OP headline that Trump lied is indeed true.

13. And CBP has confirmed that all construction has been to REPLACE EXISTING wall

CBP has confirmed that no new wall has been constructed on land that didn't have wall or barrier before.

Miles and miles of replacement wall has been installed, but no new land has had wall built on it.

19. It replace a barb wire fence for the most part. The most strategic areas are fenced first.

Play your silly word games, the fence is being built and the adjoining next 50 miles is under construction as we post.

Marry that with the Fact that Trump can now ban additional funds to those cities who protect illegal aliens; that no asylum will be available to anyone on our southern border with the exception of Mexican nationals, and this war with the anti-American, anti-constitution "left wing socialist open border buttheads" is being won on every front.

You lose, again and again.

You will be looking at Trump in the Whitehouse for six more years.

I bet those idiots who bet their whole political future on and told all those huge lies about the Russian hoax feel pretty damn stupid about now.

Life is good, and yes I do laugh my butt off when on every issue Trump beats you politically. You folks can delay him now and then but he always gets his way in the end. Life is really great.

21. I don't think the US should invest in a wall, they should invest in busses or a rail line from

north to south. The US doesn't seem to want all these immigrants on the southern border, you know, because racism. The easiest and most humane fix would seem to be to load them on a bus or train and bring them to the Canadian border.

These people are all good, hard working people who will contribute to the tax base, culture and diversity of Canada and Canada is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world so they certainly have plenty of space for these new immigrants.

Today's spoiled, arrogant, ignorant, lazy and worthless 'Murikans can't even build a ONE MILE WALL ON THE F&CKING BORDER

The same Dems that voted for wall / fencing in the recent past.

32. Why would you expect

them to start in areas that were not previously prioritized? They are starting in areas where the fences were deemed important already and replacing the next to useless fences that exist in those more critical areas. The logic seems self evident.
