Reports are coming in that the Biden administration has restarted construction on the southern border wall.
From PJ Media:
Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin announced the construction in a way that suggested Biden had finally decided to keep building the wall.
“BREAKING: [Fox News] has confirmed via the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that construction on a 13.4 mile stretch of border wall in the Rio Grande Valley will *RESUME* after pressure from local residents & politicians. The Biden admin previously halted all wall construction in Jan.,” Melugin announced on Twitter.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) responded to Melugin, clarifying that construction of the wall had not truly restarted.
“In support of CBP’s border infrastructure program, USACE has resumed DHS-funded design & construction support on approx. 13.4 miles of levee in the Rio Grande Valley that were partially excavated or at various levels of construction when work on the wall was paused for review,” the corps tweeted (emphasis added).
The border wall was a key issue of the Trump campaign and although it was never finished its construction proved to be an effective deterrent while Trump was in office. After Biden got in and halted construction the crisis started and illegal migrants began pouring over the border.
