Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.- In an unprecedented event in the Chihuahua border area, workers in the service of the US government work to place barbed wire on the so-called ‘Trump Wall’, this a few meters from the border crossing located between Ciudad Juárez and El Paso.

At the moment it is unknown how long this measure will extend. Unofficial reports indicate that the extreme measure may be due to the fact that several groups of migrants have placed improvised stairs in the place to cross to the United States, surely in search of a better life.

Already in March 2019, US authorities had ordered to put barbed wire on the border between San Diego and Tijuana, however, on that occasion, Mexican criminals stole the barbed wire and it was later sold in the black market in Baja California.
