Joe Biden announced that he has begun construction to finish Arizona’s border wall—It was painful for him, I’m sure. After all, this is the guy who vowed that ‘not another foot’ would be built if he were president. There is just no denying how well walls work. This is exactly what former Acting ICE Director Ron Vitiello had to say.
Former Acting ICE Director Ron Vitiello snapped Monday saying, “Only radicals say that walls don’t work!”
“They have to deny it because [Biden] ran on saying they weren’t going to build any more wall,” said Vitiello.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about the move last week by Fox News’ Peter Doocy. Jean-Pierre asserted that President Biden was “not finishing the wall,” but rather filling gaps to prevent migrants from attempting dangerous border crossings. According to her, they are just ‘fixing the mess’ the previous administration started—Which is a HUGE lie.
Obama started the wall project. It only became unpopular when Trump picked up the project and expanded it.
Critics noted that Biden had campaigned strongly on stopping the wall’s construction while vying for the White House in 2020. Which flooded the US with illegals for totally predictable reasons.
Vitiello said only the “super-woke” left believes walls don’t work for curbing the flow of migrants.
“Agents know that walls work. The data shows that walls work, and it provides an anchor for a border security regime across that border. It gives access to agents. It makes them safer. It’s an anchor for technology and other tools that agents need to work safely, and it helps protect the border,” he told host Julie Banderas.
Vitiello supports “going back to policies that worked” to secure the southern border, including the wall as crossings continue to surge.
“When you have a gap in the border wall, people are going to exploit it. The drug smugglers are going to exploit it.”
AZ Gov Doug Ducey and Texas Gov Greg Abbott put a fire under the Biden administration after they started to ship illegals to Washington DC. Those same illegals just magically started to turn up in other major cities where those ( Democratic ) governors complained—Biden can’t just ignore them like he did the red border states.
So, Biden had to suck it up and start finishing the wall project. I love it.
