The gaps in the border wall system in Yuma were created after President Joe Biden ordered a freeze on new construction. Since then, the Yuma Sector has been one of the busiest sectors along the southern border in terms of illegal crossings.
Jean-Pierre said on Friday the Biden administration was not building new wall, rather they are “cleaning up the mess the prior administration left behind” by not finishing border wall construction prior to 2021.
