The boundary wall of Trump could destroy the launch site of Elon Musk

The SpaceX port, which Elon Musk builds in Boca Chica, Texas, for launching commercial missiles on Mars, is at risk of being cut off by two of the US and Mexican border walls, Donald Trump.

A map drawn up by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) shows the proposed line of fence between Mexico and the United States, which interrupts the launch of SpaceX South Texas, Bloomberg reports.

The 50-acre (20-hectare) spaceport is currently being built in Boca Chica near Brownsville and is among four of the company's spaces – others are located in Florida and California.

The proposed wall cuts through SpaceX Texas

The remote location in Texas is intended to be used for commercial launches from the United States, including rockets Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy.

The proposed route to the border wall, however, would seriously impede these efforts and cause concern for the Democrats, according to Bloomberg.

"This problem with SpaceX is that the fence decreases right through their ownership, and that's a problem," said California congressman Lucille Roybal-Allard.

Representatives now lobby that SpaceX's space will be spared by the wall route before the scheme's final approval on February 15, 2019.

SpaceX refuses to comment

SpaceX and Musk are reportedly refusing to comment on the situation around the Texas site.

Bloomberg added that company spokesman James Gleeson confirmed that DHS and US Customs and Border Protection had visited the Texas Center but refused to confirm whether the fence would affect the project. T
