Work on the US-Mexico border fence near the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez continued on Wednesday, a day after the Pentagon announced two military contracts worth $976 million (€865 million) to build the wall sought by US President Donald Trump.
Footage shows workers erecting fencing next to the border fence near the Rio Grande river, as well as cars queuing to cross the border into the United... Еще States.
«It is very bad to divide a country. There is no necessity to have another wall, for more borders to be created,» student Gerardo Martinez said. «All these resources could be invested in sports, in the many people who need it, in the growth of cities.»
A national emergency was announced by Trump in February to obtain more funding for the construction of a border wall with Mexico. On Thursday, the US Senate voted 59-41 to reject Trump's declaration, with 12 Republicans reportedly joining the Democrats in campaigning against the president's measure.
