The Biden administration is facing mounting blowback for its decision to allow new border wall construction along the U.S.-Mexico border.

In a signal the move could hurt U.S.-Mexico relations, Mexico’s President Manuel Lopez Obrador slammed the administration for paving the way for the construction of a new section of border wall in southern Texas.

“This authorization for the construction of the wall is a step backwards,” Lopez Obrador said Thursday ahead of a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, according to a Reuters report.

Democrats and environmentalists are also panning the administration’s decision to waive 26 federal laws to allow for the border wall construction in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in the notice that there was an “acute and immediate” need for more physical barriers at that section of the southern border.
