Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told Immigration and Customs Enforcement staffers last week that the Biden administration is open to filling “gaps” in the wall lining the border that has seen a recent surge of migrants, according to a Washington Times report.

Mayorkas made the comments while discussing plans submitted by the Customs and Border Protection pertaining to the wall.

“There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented and the acting commissioner of CBP presented to me,” Mayorkas said in the meeting, the report said.
