(USA Features) The Biden administration is restarting construction of border wall along a section of the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a report Wednesday afternoon.
“BREAKING: @FoxNews 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.,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin reported on Twitter.

Melugin’s report comes after a statement by the Biden administration on Tuesday that construction work was also taking place on a section of border wall in California.
“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is working to fix what it describes as ‘dangerous erosion’ along a 14-mile stretch of border wall construction in California — one of what it says are a number of steps to protect communities there,” Fox News reported.
“DHS specified that it is working to ‘remediate dangerous soil erosion’ in San Diego, which it looped in as part of a number of measures to address damage that it blamed on the prior administration’s wall construction,” the report added.
“Improper compaction of soil and construction materials along a wall segment constructed by the prior administration is causing dangerous erosion along a 14-mile stretch in San Diego, California,” DHS said in an April 30 statement.
“DHS will begin necessary backfill projects to ensure the safety of nearby border communities.”
