Mcallen Mayor Jim Darling has reversed his stance on calls for building a border wall.

In a letter to the Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Darling says that its support for the structure came from the mistaken belief, FEMA would release portions of property to owners. He says although he has been generally been in favor of building a wall, he is in favor of the security methods put forth by border patrol that include virtual walls.
