Biden Finds A Way To Make The Border Crisis Worse
At this point, the Biden Admin should just stop pretending and admit they have given us an open border. I mean they have overwhelmed the border to such a crazy point that migrants cross our border illegally in massive waves and all the border patrol can do is watch them cross. And when state leaders got together to get the "remain in Mexico" policy reinstated the Biden Admin fought it. So now, to top off the madness at the border, the Biden Admin is canceling the remaining contracts for the Trump border wall.
The Department of Homeland Security put out a statement.
"Consistent with the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) border barrier plan, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), intends to cancel the remaining border barrier contracts located within U.S. Border Patrol’s (USBP) Laredo Sector and all border barrier contracts located in the Rio Grande Valley Sector.
CBP will then begin environmental planning and actions consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for previously planned border barrier system projects located within the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo, and El Centro Sectors.
Environmental planning activities will cover projects funded with DHS’s Fiscal Year 2018-2021 barrier system appropriations where construction had not started. These activities include additional biological, cultural, and natural resource surveys for project areas where no data have been previously collected. CBP will also conduct comprehensive and targeted outreach with interested stakeholders, including impacted landowners, tribes, state and local elected officials, and federal agencies.
These activities will not involve any construction of new border barrier or permanent land acquisition.
The Administration continues to call on Congress to cancel remaining border wall funding and instead fund smarter border security measures..."
It seems like it's only a matter of time until the Biden Admin orders the Border Patrol to start welcoming the migrants in like Walmart Greeters. It is clearly not the time to stop the construction of walls. We need all the border security we can get. But I guess we are going to have to wait until 2024 to get someone who actually cares about our country and the welfare of Americans.
