“President Trump is expected to travel to Alamo, Texas, on Tuesday to mark the completion of more than 400 miles of border wall — a promise made, promise kept — and his Administration’s efforts to reform our broken immigration system,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere said.

More than 400 miles of border wall have been completed during Trump’s time in office. However, only 30 miles are in new areas, according to a Customs and Border Protection report obtained by the Express-News.
