U.S. Waives Environmental Reviews for California Border Wall

SAN DIEGO — The Trump administration on Tuesday waived environmental laws and other reviews to replace a small stretch of border wall in Calexico, California, the second time it has exercised that authority in less than two months. Critics said the move was an overreach and a threat to the environment. The waiver (PDF) extends 3 miles west from the downtown border crossing in the city of 40,000 people, according to a notice in the Federal Register.
