Biden just can’t help himself. He is disaster-prone and unfortunately, we are stuck with him for the next 3 years. It was within the first couple of months of his presidency that he created this border crisis and then later claimed Kamala Harris would fix it. But we are now about 9 months into his presidency and the border crisis has only become worse, and the Biden Admin seems to be helping it along. The DHS had just announced that they are canceling the remaining border wall projects.
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…”
This is the last thing we need. The Biden Admin is only making things worse in a time when we could use all of the border security we can get.
