Biden Administration pausing border wall construction

(KYMA, KECY/ NBC News) - The Biden Administration announced this past weekend that it was cancelling all border wall construction projects that were being funded with redirected military money.

The Trump Administration increased defense department money going to border wall projects when congress refused to appropriate the funds in early 2018.

It is not clear whether the Biden Administration plans to permanently end all wall construction like those paid for by the Department of Homeland Security's budget, but all of those projects are on pause.

However, the Department of Homeland Security announced it was doing repair work on parts of the wall like the Rio Grande Valley flood barrier system and soil erosion in San Diego.

As a candidate, President Biden pledged to not build additional wall, and now in office he has paused all border wall construction.
