Construction crews in Eagle Pass, Texas, started building a brand new, historic floating border barrier near the area on Monday. The ultimate goal of the new project is to provide a strong deterrent for individuals contemplating crossing the border illegally in high-traffic areas along the Rio Grande.
This is largely due to the fact that so many immigrants have died attempting to cross the river, making it a serious safety hazard to those trying to gain access to the United States.
According to a report from the folks at Breitbart News, Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Lt. Olivarez posted a tweet containing several videos showing the construction crews starting on the installation of a series of buoys.
