The Trump wall on Mexico’s border is advancing despite being suspended

Construction on the US-Mexico border wall continued this Thursday, the day after new President Joe Biden ordered it suspended.

Hours after taking office as the 46th president of the United States, Joe Biden signed the first executive order in the White House on Wednesday, stopping his predecessor, Donald Trump, from erecting a wall.

However, sources from NGOs in the area where the wall is being built told EFE that part of a mountain within the Guadeloupe Valley on the Arizona-Mexico border erupted on Wednesday, and work resumed at several points this morning.

“Construction continues (…) This morning we saw trucks carrying goods that are bringing heavy equipment to the region.”, Said Tricia Cortes, managing director of the Center for International Studies in Rio Grande, Texas.

Cortes, co-founder of the Coalition Against Wall Building, contacted the Office of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and demanded that the new presidential order be complied with.

Piton’s executive order requires construction to be halted “as soon as possible,” giving it a maximum of 7 days to complete.
