Abstract Nearly 10 months after we asked the federal government for records detailing how much it has spent to build a border wall, Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting is suing for that information.

Last March, reporter Andrew Becker asked U.S. Customs and Border Protection for records showing the costs of buying land and building fence along the country’s 2,000-mile southern border. After the government dragged its feet for months on our request, we filed suit in U.S. District Court this week seeking the records.
