U.S. eases environment laws for Mexico border wall near San Diego

U.S. eases environment laws for Mexico border wall near San DiegoBy Susan Heavey WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States will waive environmental rules so additional barriers can be built to keep illegal immigrants from crossing the border with Mexico near San Diego, the Department of Homeland Security said on Tuesday. The projects, on about 15 miles (24 km) of the frontier extending east from the Pacific Ocean, are part of President Donald Trump’s planned wall between the United States and Mexico. The planned border wall was a centerpiece of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign but Democrats and many Republicans have questioned its effectiveness.
