Break in Border Wall Near Los Algodones, Mexico


Los Algodones, Mexico - A section of the border fence between the US and Los Algodones, Mexico has come down. KSWT News 13 reporter Stephanie Sanchez tells us from scene that crews are working on repairs and the area is secure.

Initial reports indicate about 114 feet of the fence is open. There was a construction crew on the Mexican side of the fence doing some excavating Tuesday night. The portion of the wall collapsed around 8p.m.  There is no indication there was any intentional damage to the fence.

Our crew is on the way back from the Mexican side of the border with the latest and will update the story on KSWT News 13 starting at 4:00.
