Construction on Border Wall to Resume

Rio Grande Valley flood levee to be repaired.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it will resume construction on part of the border wall in the Rio Grande. A 13.4-mile stretch will be built, after complaints from local residents and politicians were heeded by the administration. All border wall construction had been previously halted by President Biden’s administration in January.

The USACE said it has resumed DHS-funded design and construction support on approximately 13.4 miles of levee in the Rio Grande Valley that were partially excavated or at various levels of construction when work on the wall was “paused for review.” They said work to repair the Rio Grande Valley’s flood levee had begun but “this remediation work will not involve expanding border barrier.”

Because the region is prone to floods, the bottom cement half of the wall serves as a levee system to prevent water from making its way north. Gaps in the construction put residents at risk if waters from the Rio Grande river rise.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president’s administration to accurately evaluate and address conditions at the U.S.-Mexico border.
  • For the Army Corps of Engineers as they work to complete that portion of the Rio Grande wall-levee.
