The first segment of President Trump’s border wall could start in South Texas.
On Friday, Customs and Border Protection officials announced they are looking to begin construction in the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge in January.
Officials say the area was chosen because the property is already owned by the Federal Government.
Customs and Border Protection plans to build an 18-foot levee wall through 3 miles of the refuge.
The site is located on the Texas-Mexico border, about 10 miles Southeast of MCallen in the Rio Grande Valley.
