Biden appears to be building parts of Trump’s border wall

The Department of Homeland Security announced a new project that sounds like it will involve building some of Donald Trump’s unfinished wall.

“Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas authorized U.S. Customs and Border Protection to move forward with activities necessary to address life, safety, environmental, and remediation requirements for border barrier projects previously undertaken by the Department of Defense and located within the Border Patrol’s San Diego, El Centro, Yuma, Tucson, El Paso, and Del Rio Sectors,” the agency announced.

But buried within the announcement is a suggestion that limited wall construction will continue.

“Activities” will include “closing small gaps that remain open from prior construction activities and remediating incomplete gates,” DHS says.

If the wall is so useless, what’s the point of closing the gaps?
