A 30-foot fence high spanning two miles has been constructed at the Mexico-US border.

Sporting a plaque that boasted President Donald Trump’s name, it marks the first phase of a wall to block migrants from entering the US.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen inaugurated the Calexico site in Imperial City, California Friday.

She warned ‘everything is on the table’ as the administration considered new measures to send a message to a dwindling and slow-moving migrant caravan from Honduras. It is currently 990 miles away from McAllen, Texas.

‘Let me be clear: Walls work,’ Nielsen said after workers fixed a plaque to the barrier which featured names several high-ranking officials including herself and Trump.

‘We are looking at every possible way within the legal construct that we have to make sure that those who don’t have the legal right to come to this country do not come in.’

The structure is separate from a concrete wall prototype built near San Diego as part of Trump’s signature White House campaign promise in 2016.

Further confirming the travelers will not be welcome, the Pentagon approved a request for additional troops at the southern border. It means there could be 800 to 1,000 joining in total.

The troops are not the same National Guard members that responded to a spike in illegal border crossings this year. Those focused on surveillance and were under the control of the governors in the states they’re positioned.

There are currently approximately 2,000 National Guard troops on the border.
