Would you look at that – the Biden administration is considering finishing the wall Trump started on our Southern border, but only after allowing possibly more than 100,000 illegal immigrants to flood our country.
Biden’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees that he may decide to finish filling the “gaps in the wall” between the U.S. and Mexico, according to a report from the Washington Times.
“There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented and the acting commissioner of the CPB presented to me,” Mayorkas 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,” he continued.
“But that leaves room to make decisions as the administration, as part of my administration, in particular areas of the wall that need renovation, particular projects that need to be finished,” he said alluding to holes in the wall intended for construction workers to use to bring equipment back and forth.
The gaps were left unfilled when Biden halted construction of Trump’s wall along the Southern border.
Mayorkas’ change of mind comes just weeks after he told “loving” South American parents who send a child, unaccompanied, on a dangerous trek to the United States that “we will not expel that young child” although he hopes “they don’t undertake that perilous journey”.
In a classic bait and switch, he’s now sending the opposite message by considering continuing to build the wall – or at least fill the gaps that illegal immigrants are using to filter into the United States.
So much for not expelling those young children.
But conservatives should not be surprised by yet another example of Leftist hypocrisy as they frequently use people like pawns to their advantage and dump them when they’re no longer useful for their political aspirations.
While it would be better to fill the border wall gaps late than never, the damage is already done.
Deputy Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz told Fox News on Monday that they estimate “way over 100,000 people” have evaded Border Patrol so far in 2021.
“We have technology and we have some resources out there that give us an estimate of how many people are actually getting away from us and we continue to try and refine and have as much confidence in that statistic as we can,” he prefaced.
“But I can tell you that, so far, it’s been way over 100,000 people that have gotten away from us this year. But the Border Patrol agents, as well as our law enforcement partners, are doing everything we can. Our resources are just stretched awfully thin right now,” Ortiz added.
While the DHS Secretary is going back and forth on allowing undocumented people into our country and toying with the idea of finishing the wall, our country is being overrun by noncitizens who will inevitably inundate our schools, jobs, housing system, and low-income benefit programs funded by tax-paying citizens. We will be paying for them to receive benefits that are supposed to be exclusively available to Americans who were born here or legally immigrated here, but instead, legal citizens are only entitled to suffer the consequences of open border policies. Under the Biden administration, illegal immigrants are being given more rights and privileges than American citizens are and that is a policy that must end.
