Correction to Original Post: This is not the border wall, as the original post title indicated. According to an AFP Fact Check, this is reconstruction of a Rio Grande levee embankment.
Bill Melugin for Fox News tweeted the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers confirmed President Joe Biden’s administration will resume border wall construction in the Rio Grande Valley.

In support of CBP’s border infrastructure program, USACE has resumed DHS-funded design & construction support on approx. 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.

We’ve been documenting the border crisis on a semi-regular basis. The truth is we have had a border crisis for a long time. Neither party will ever fix our immigration system because it’s all about appeasing voters instead of doing what is right.
A report came out last month that the administration wanted to resume the border wall.
