Nearly 700 miles of border fence already exist

ABC – President Donald Trump’s longtime campaign promise of building a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border could be one step closer to fruition after he signed an executive order announcing a series of steps to deter “illegal immigration from Central America.”

But some 700 miles of border fencing had already been completed along the country’s nearly 2,000-mile border with Mexico, much of it during Barack Obama’s presidency, as part of the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which was signed by George W. Bush.
