Trump's Border Wall
President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. issued a proclamation today terminating the emergency with respect to the Southern Border of the United States that was declared by President Trump and redirecting funds that President Trump diverted to border wall construction.. The action, embodied in Presidential Proclamation 10142, was one of six migration-related first-day actions taken by the new president. This particular one asserts that the national emergency declared by President Trump will no longer be used to construct a wall at the southern border of the United States.
It also directs the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Homeland Security, in coordination with other officials, to develop a plan for the redirection of funds concerning the southern border wall.
