U.S. government agency force opens gate in private border wall
EL PASO, Texas -- A federal agency has forced open a gate in the privately funded wall near the U.S.-Mexico border, saying the group that built it didn't follow proper permitting procedures. The U.S. section of the International Boundary and Water Commission says the gate was blocking a government-owned levee road, and that the group known as We Build the Wall constructed the gate on federal land without authority.
