Mark Morgan, the acting commissioner of President Donald Trump’s Customs and Border Protection agency, announced the programs in a tweet, which also spotlights the political and financial cost of President-elect Joe Biden’s promise to block construction of more border wall:

    2. Materials have already been purchased, incl. 270,000 tons of steel.
    3. More costs incurred for restoration, such as filling in trenches already dug.
