The old press release said “DHS is committed to building wall and building wall quickly,” while the edited version says “DHS is committed to building a wall at our southern border and building a wall quickly.” Critics took to Twitter on Wednesday and Thursday with jokes and caveman comparisons, poking fun at the release’s oddly simplistic language. But the edits did not address critiques of the press release’s accuracy in claiming that the border wall has been built.
