Biden terminates border wall construction contracts

President Joe Biden is canceling further construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, the Defense Department said on Friday.

“The DoD has started to take all necessary measures to cancel border fence projects and to coordinate with interagency partners,” Pentagon spokesman Jamal Brown said in a statement. “Today’s action reflects this administration’s continued commitment to defend our nation and support our military personnel and their families.”

In one of his first acts in office, Biden halted progress on the border wall – a signing policy of former President Donald Trump – by freezing money for border wall construction projects and ending to Trump’s declaration of national emergency along the border.
