The first thing that Joe Biden did when he got into office was try to do away with the border policies of President Donald Trump including stopping the building of the wall that had been such a high priority of the Trump Administration.
Of course, the result then was a flood of illegal aliens into the country now that they knew Biden was doing away with the protections put in place by Trump.
But Biden is now up a creek without a paddle. The border crisis and the numbers are just growing and he doesn’t seem to know how to stop it.
It’s now even caused him to contemplate the unthinkable — implicitly admitting that Trump was right.
According to The Washington Times, the DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told employees that he was considering restarting the border wall to fix “gaps in the wall.”
“It’s not a single answer to a single question. There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented and the acting commissioner of CBP presented to me,” the secretary said.
“The president has communicated quite clearly his decision that the emergency that triggered the devotion of DOD funds to the construction of the border wall is ended. But that leaves room to make decisions as the administration, as part of the administration, in particular areas of the wall that need renovation, particular projects that need to be finished,” he said.
Whoops. Translation: they’re realizing the importance of what Trump was doing, how important it is to plug the gaps and they’re hearing it straight out from the experts on the scene — the Customs and Border Patrol officials.
Trump built about 460 miles of the wall, mostly replacing where there may have been ‘barriers’ like vehicle barriers that didn’t stop anyone from crossing or old sections of wall with a far superior system that wasn’t just about a better “wall” but included roads and technology to help detect incursions. That’s something that Democrats always left out of the description when they tried to attack Trump over it. But because of what Biden did when he came in, stopping what was in process, Biden left things like roads which had been completed, but then part of the wall or the technology undone. So then cartels in Cochise County, Arizona were making use of the roads that had been built. “We just built roads for the cartels,” Sheriff Mark Dannels explained. Thanks, Biden!
There are also potential legal problems with how they stopped this, as we previously reported, which is why the GAO is presently investigating Biden, who may have violated the Impoundment Control Act (ICA) since Congress allocated the money for the building and are claiming Biden interfered in their constitutional authority of the purse.
This is going to send some on the far left into a tizzy.
Can you imagine what Trump will say when he hears this? These are the moments when you really need him on Twitter. But doubtless, a statement will be coming and I’m willing to bet it will be glorious.
