President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has canceled 31 miles of border wall construction set for Laredo, Texas, that was previously funded by Congress and former President Trump’s administration.
On Friday, DHS officials announced that they were terminating two border wall construction projects concentrated in the Laredo region because it is “not necessary to address any life, safety, environmental, or other remediation requirements” outlined by Biden’s executive order that halted wall construction altogether.
The article goes on to state the following:
According to DHS officials, the 31-mile project had not yet started and they are looking at canceling more border wall construction projects that were previously funded by Trump.
In a press release, Biden’s DHS announced:
DHS continues to review all other paused border barrier projects and is in the process of determining which projects may be necessary to address life, safety, environmental, or other remediation requirements and where to conduct environmental planning.
The Administration also continues to call on Congress to cancel remaining border wall funding and instead fund smarter border security measures, like border technology and modernization of land ports of entry, that are proven to be more effective at improving safety and security at the border.

In a statement, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D) whose district includes Laredo, said, “This announcement is a promising step in our work to halt the remaining construction of the ineffective and wasteful border wall and undo the damage that borderlands have experienced since 2016. However, our work continues. I remain steadfast in my commitment to working with the Biden administration until every border wall contract is terminated and all construction crews leave our border communities.”
Hector Garza, Border Patrol Union President in the Laredo region, slammed the move, posting the following on Facebook:
DHS’s Customs and Border Protection is terminating the contracts for the Laredo, Texas, sector of the border––spanning 31 miles and using fiscal 2020 appropriated funds––because they “are not necessary to address any life, safety, environmental or other remediation requirements, as described in the DHS border wall plan implementing President Biden’s proclamation,” said the department in a press release.
Garza also shared the following video earlier this week, of a huge crowd of illegal aliens being let into the country.
“This is what’s happening on the border in the Del Río Sector!! The Del Rio Sector and the Rio Grande Valley Sector transport these illegal aliens to Laredo on a daily basis. These illegal aliens are processed by Laredo agents and subsequently released in our community!!!” he wrote.
