Well, it’s not a wall, but it’s no longer an open field.

Border patrols have laid an extensive barbed-wire fence along the Texas side of the Rio Grande.

The New York Post reported soldiers worked with US Customs and Border Patrol officials to lay 1,000 feet of fencing the along the border’s river.

According to the Defense Departement, the barrier was installed underneath the McAllen-Hidalgo International Bridge, which enters into Mexico.

During a campaign rally on Saturday, Trump said he watched the fence go up in awe.
