U.S. Customs and Border Protection has unveiled a stretch of new wall on the southern border, saying it has completed at least 60 miles of new border wall in total.

The new section of wall near San Luis, Arizona consists of an 18-foot steel bollard barrier.

CBP says that a new triple-layered enforcement zone is more effective at deterring illegal entry than the former single 10-foot barrier.

The agency says that it plans to build at least 450 miles of new border wall by the end of 2020, and has projects underway in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

The wall near San Luis is in the Yuma Sector, which is the third-busiest along the southwest border. 

A majority of the tens of thousands of people who came to the U.S. over the last year are Central American families with children who immediately claim asylum.

Many travel in large groups, and the high volume of people has overwhelmed Border Patrol, resulting in slow response times and dangerously overcrowded detention facilities. 

Five children have died while in Border Patrol custody since December.
