President Donald Trump said Monday that the construction of the wall on the U.S. border with Mexico is moving very rapidly and that the border crisis is decreasing.
A Customs and Border Protection official said the administration has erected about 100 kilometers of new wall despite efforts to block the construction. The administration has diverted more than $3 billion already allocated for 127 military construction projects. VOA’s Zlatica Hoke reports.
