(CNN)The Biden administration is returning more than $2 billion to military projects that had previously been set aside for the construction of former President Donald Trump's border wall, the White House Office of Management and Budget said Friday.

In one of his first actions in office, President Joe Biden ordered a pause on wall construction and called for a review of projects and funds.

Friday's announcement builds on the Biden administration's decision to cancel all contracts for wall construction on the US-Mexico border that used funds originally intended for military missions and functions.

The Department of Homeland Security, meanwhile, is using appropriated funds to address environmental issues stemming from the Trump administration's wall construction, as well as for construction clean up.

Biden's fiscal year 2022 budget included over $1 billion for border infrastructure, like technology, but no additional funding for border wall construction.
