Several miles east of the city of Douglas, Customs and Border Protection plans to replace about 19 miles of Normandy-style fencing with taller bollard fencing along mountainous terrain. Arizona 360 captured early work underway by Southwest Valley Constructors, the company contracted by the Army Corps of Engineers. Lorraine Rivera also spoke to the police chiefs of Douglas and the neighboring Mexican city of Agua Prieta, Sonora, about how current infrastructure along the border impacts public safety in their communities.
Arizona 360 airs Fridays at 8:30 p.m. on PBS 6 and Saturdays at 8 p.m. on PBS 6 PLUS. See more from Arizona 360.
