Construction resumed on a private border wall in New Mexico after the We Build the Wall organization agreed to provide the city with the necessary information to complete the permitting process.

“I really want to applaud the hard work of Sunland Park city officials in the last 36 hours in clarifying any issues, and that’s why we’re back at work and that’s why the machines are running,” said Kris Kobach, general counsel for We Build the Wall, on Thursday.

The city issued a stop work order Tuesday because the owner of the property, American Eagle Brick company, did not have an approved building permit for the $6 million wall.
