I cannot wait to read what Donald Trump has to say about this.
The Washington Times reported that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wants to restart construction on the border wall to fill any gaps.
From the article:
In a conversation with Immigration and Customs Enformcement [sic] employees last week Mr. Mayorkas was asked about his plans for the wall and he said that while President 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.”
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.
“It’s not a single answer to a single question. There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented and the acting commissioner of CBP presented to me,” the secretary 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. 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.
President Joe Biden halted funds for the border wall right after he took office.
Biden pledged his administration would not build “another foot” of President Donald Trump’s border wall.
I guess he isn’t technically breaking his campaign pledge. Mayorkas said the parts of the wall “include ‘gaps,’ ‘gates,’ and areas ‘where the wall has been completed but the technology has not been implemented.'”DONATE
