U.S. 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. That money will pay for the construction of 300 kilometers of the wall.
