ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Scrap metal dealers in Mexico are profiting off construction of the border wall and an Albuquerque company may be at the center of it.

The border has been a staple of President Trump’s campaign since 2016.


An official with Southwest Valley Constructors declined to comment and referred any response to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Customs and Border Protection has launched an investigation but would not comment any further with the investigation pending.

“All of that metal and concrete should have been carried away to Phoenix or Tucson where there’s legal disposal sites or recycling centers – none of it should have been pushed into Mexico,” said Nabhan, adding that aside from taxpayer waste, there’s also environmental concerns.
