Historic Border Patrol Badge Artifact

Southern Barrier, Part 8

The barrier continues eastward and its construction technology matches the perceived threat. The image below is looking west toward Russian Hill in the far distance. Please note the primary fence of steel plate to the south (left in the image) and the massive secondary fence of climb-proof mesh with the 45-degree overhang.

Between the two barriers is a “No Mans’s Land” with all weather road. Note also the permanent high intensity flood light system.
