In the first few months of Joe Biden’s presidency, it has been fairly obvious as to what his major failures have been, especially on the southern border.
The Biden administration is currently saddled with an incredibly abysmal immigration situation, as a massive surge of migrants has overwhelmed the system, crowding detention centers throughout the southwest – with a great many of the occupants being unaccompanied minors.
Furthermore, Biden’s team has attempted to block reporting on the conditions within these facilities, which itself is a red flag for many Americans.
Now, as the situation continues to devolve, the Department of Homeland Security is even considering constructing even more border wall.
An exclusive report from Washington Times reporter Stephen Dinan suggests that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is considering restarting border wall construction to fill in “gaps” that exist after former President Trump’s administration constructed 450 miles from 2017 to 2020.
In a conversation with ICE employees last week Mr. Mayorkas was asked about his plans for the wall and he said that while Mr. Biden has canceled the border emergency and halted Pentagon money flowing to the wall, “that leaves room to make decisions” on finishing some “gaps in the wall.” [Emphasis added]
Mr. Mayorkas, according to notes of the ICE session reviewed by The Washington Times, said Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the wall, has submitted a plan for what it wants to see happen moving forward.[Emphasis added]
“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. [Emphasis added]
The move would be considered a fairly stark departure from Biden’s campaigned-upon promises to the American people, and may even lend some credibility to the idea that perhaps Donald Trump was right all along.
And that would a cardinal sin among the Democrats.
