The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Monday that it will use border wall funds to close some unfinished gaps in the wall that former President Trump started.

President Biden shut down all construction on the wall when he entered office on Jan. 20, leaving large sections of the wall incomplete and construction material sitting unused on the border.

The plan does not include the construction of additional miles of wall but would close "small gaps that remain open from prior construction activities and remediating incomplete gates."


DHS said the move is part of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas' plan to use border funds "to protect border communities from physical dangers resulting from the previous administration's approach to border wall construction."

The department said that the border funds will also be used on drainage systems, to prevent erosion, to complete unfinished access roads, and to discard construction materials that are already at the border but will not be used for the "remediation" work. 

The work will happen in the Tucson, Yuma and El Paso border sectors, which stretch from California to Texas. The department said it is also considering other potential work in all three states.
