You really need to follow Bill Melugin; he’s the national correspondent for the Fox affiliate in Los Angeles, but he gets around. Just a few days ago, he was in Del Rio, Texas, watching groups of migrants flood over the border:

Now he’s reporting that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is resuming construction of a portion of border wall in the Rio Grande Valley.
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.

Very interesting but I'll confirm with a secondary source because I do not trust Fox News at all.

Fox News can't confirm anything. They're labeled as "entertainment," so I wouldn't give a sh*t about what they have to say. I'm not saying that Biden ISN'T planning to continue construction, but I'll wait for the confirmation to come from a reliable source before passing judgment

OK, here’s the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers confirming it:
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 border wall is infrastructure.
All construction should be completed.

Walls are okay now

Don’t call it a crisis, call it a remodel!

Great idea, Mr. President. Let’s keep it going and finish the entire wall.
— Jake Million (@mjohnamerican) May 12, 2021
Well he did say build back better. This wall wont be xenophobic obviously.

Glad they're listening to the local people dealing with this crisis situation since Joey and Kammi can't be bothered to even go there to see how bad it is.

Now that’s infrastructure I can support

Will the wall be woke ?
— Mario Cardona (@MarioCa39453966) May 12, 2021
Well it was technically already paid for by 🇺🇸 taxpayers so they might as well go ahead and finish it

Biden will take credit for it once it's built and working.
