“Biden Admin Plans to Close Small Gaps in Border Wall.”
YUMA, ARIZONA – DECEMBER 11: In an aerial view, a immigrant family from Haiti walks towards a gap in the U.S. border wall from Mexico on December 11, 2021 in Yuma, Arizona. They had made the arduous journey from Brazil. Yuma has seen a surge of migrant crossings in the past week, with many immigrants trying to reach U.S. soil before the court-ordered re-implementation of the Trump-era Remain in Mexico policy. The policy requires asylum seekers to stay in Mexico during their U.S. immigration court process. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
” … part of a broader Biden administration plan to wind down the Trump border wall construction effort, which was one of the most expensive federal infrastructure projects in American history.
The work will be carried out in the U.S. Border Patrol’s San Diego, El Centro, Yuma, Tucson, El Paso, and Del Rio sectors, CNN reported.
The Washington Free Beacon pointed out that these regions have seen record levels of illegal immigration immigration this year.
DHS said it will also add “missing gates” and connect “power to gates that are already hung but are currently inoperable.” Border Patrol agents use the emergency rescue gates to save migrants stranded in irrigation canals.
