Border wall construction has sped up amid coronavirus crisis, CBP chief says

Construction of the wall at the southern border has sped up amid the coronavirus crisis.  The head of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told Fox News that the construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall remains a “top priority” for the Trump administration.



Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan said:

“This pandemic has not slowed the construction of the border wall system. In fact, we’re increasing the pace of construction.”

“COVID-19 should be a wake-up call for all Americans that border security is national security. Preventing and slowing down the introduction of a deadly virus into the U.S. from outside our borders is exactly why border security matters, and why the wall matters.”
