Two state attorneys general ask court to require Biden administration to finish border wall

As Texas and Missouri attorneys general ask a federal court to require the Biden administration to immediately resume building the border wall with funds allocated by Congress, the Department of Homeland Security announced it was using the funds on environmental projects instead.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt sued the administration in October. In November, they filed a motion for a preliminary injunction to require it to resume building the border wall using funds already appropriated by Congress to do so.

President Joe Biden halted construction of the wall as one of his first acts in office after Congress had allocated $6 billion for the wall’s construction between fiscal years 2018 and 2021.
