The U.S. Border Patrol has released new video showing parts of the southern border with Mexico, which used to be accessible to illegal aliens, drug traffickers, human smugglers, cartels and other bad actors, has been closed off thanks to new fencing in Arizona.

The same goes for new fencing in San Diego, where illegal aliens attempted to cross and were unsuccessful thanks to new barriers.

This new fencing is a result of President Trump's national emergency declaration earlier this year. 

"The current situation at the southern border presents a border security and humanitarian crisis that threatens core national security interests and constitutes a national emergency.  The southern border is a major entry point for criminals, gang members, and illicit narcotics.  The problem of large-scale unlawful migration through the southern border is long-standing, and despite the executive branch’s exercise of existing statutory authorities, the situation has worsened in certain respects in recent years," President Trump declared in February. "Because of the gravity of the current emergency situation, it is necessary for the Armed Forces to provide additional support to address the crisis."

Additional construction projects are currently underway.
