The administration is carefully calling them “remediation projects.”
According to a report from Just The News, the Biden Administration is quietly repairing sections of the southern border in addition to fixing small gaps. DHS intends to prioritize funding on those remediation projects that are needed to address life and safety, according to the CBP website.
From Just The News:
Agency authorities held a meeting Wednesday to discuss the environmental assessment of the proposed “Border Barrier Remediation Plan,” which would fix parts of the border wall in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas.
The Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the agency and border security, say it plans on prioritizing remediation funding for projects to protect the public and “avert further environmental damage or degradation.”
Beyond the proposal, administration officials said “all border barrier construction projects have been canceled.”
Small gaps will be closed in the wall in addition to work to such as completing unfinished gates and fixing drainage areas…but large holes in the border will remain, a Border Patrol Environmental Planning official said during Wednesday’s meeting, according to AZ Central.
Candidate Biden promised there would be no additional border wall construction under his administration.
