SAN DIEGO— The Center for Biological Diversity sued the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection today for failing to provide environmental documents required for the construction of border wall “prototypes” in San Diego County.

The Center requested the public records in May under the Freedom of Information Act, but the agencies have failed to provide any response. Prototype construction is scheduled to begin this summer. There's no evidence that the Trump administration has done any environmental review, though the review is required by federal law.
