Container wall de-construction continued today
YUMA, Ariz. (KECY, KYMA) - The gap in the border wall by the Morelos Dam in Yuma has been re-opened after four shipping containers were removed Tuesday morning.
The gap was left in the wall when President Biden took office and signed an executive order halting all border wall construction.
The gap then became a symbol of Yuma's border crisis as migrants walked through it nearly every day to turn themselves in to Border Patrol and seek asylum, a right provided to migrants under U.S. immigration law.
Container de-construction began on Monday and could be done by the end of the week.
