El Paso, November 13 (RHC)-- On the U.S.-Mexico border, construction crews are working on a new steel wall separating El Paso, Texas from neighboring Ciudad Juárez.  The new four-mile long section of 18-foot high wall will replace an existing border fence, at an estimated cost of $22 million. 

El Paso County Commissioner David Stout speaking at a protest against the wall said: "This wall damages our community, because ours is a binational community.  We all have family, friends, and coworkers who live on that side and work here, or vice versa.  And we are sending a very ugly message to our brothers in Mexico while it’s one of the countries we in the United States depend on the most economically, especially the communities along the border.”
