Biden Admin Will Resume Construction of Rio Grande Levee Repairs

Biden Admin Will Resume Construction of Rio Grande Levee Repairs

Correction to Original Post: This is not the border wall, as the original post title indicated. According to an AFP Fact Check, this is reconstruction of a Rio Grande levee embankment.

Original Post:

Bill Melugin for Fox News tweeted the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers confirmed President Joe Biden’s administration will resume border wall construction in the Rio Grande Valley.

We’ve been documenting the border crisis on a semi-regular basis. The truth is we have had a border crisis for a long time. Neither party will ever fix our immigration system because it’s all about appeasing voters instead of doing what is right.

A report came out last month that the administration wanted to resume the border wall.

It’s all a-okay if a Democrat administration does it. But the “evil republicans” cannot be said to do anything worthwhile.

    Ans especially not that big meanie, Trump.

    We all know that Trump was the man, he and he alone was responsible for moving ahead the wall. When the wall is complete, can we start using human cannons to send both illegals and marxists over the wall?

      I wouldn’t be so wall happy now, JD. While we think of the wall as keeping illegals out, the left wants them to flow in. The only purpose the left has for a wall is to keep us in. Ron Paul called this a decade ago, and I dismissed him as a nutjob. Look at what’s happening, how it’s happening, and tell me he was wrong.

      I had a weird exchange with a leftie years ago, who was calling for Trump to “tear down that wall,” and I pointed out that the Berlin wall was erected to keep people in, while ours was erected to keep people out. As we look at who leads this country now, are we walling people out or keeping them in? The illegals pour in, per this admin’s policy, why do they need a wall at all? They love open borders, right?

    Don’t believe for a minute they are actually going to do it. This is just lying cover for their border disaster.

It’s going to be a long slog fixing the mess created by Joe Crow and the neo-racist woke fundamentalists pushing his wagon.

Bullshit.

By ‘resume construction’, they mean ‘award a multi-billion dollar contract to a political crony who will triple bill the government and spend 5 years NOT finishing it’.

    Is this really going to happen? My understanding is that we were still paying the previous construction companies on schedule according to the contract terms, because contract, despite their being told not to build anything now. So if they restart construction, aren’t they locked into who does it?

One thing to say you’re going to restart the construction, another to finish it. Perhaps the ‘local residents’ can do daily/weekly video and photos…

If they actually do it, I will be happy. I don’t care to try to make Biden eat crow; my hope is for a stumbling block for the illegal aliens pouring across the border. [And I call them “illegal aliens” or “invaders”, not “undocumented immigrants.” ]

They added up the number of illegal now and later legal Dems voters and have enough now to steal any election. Add to that stealing from regular sources and they are ready to close the barn door.

If walls do not work, why do so many elite liberals and Democrat politicians live in gated communities?

    At this point, I am more worried about Ron Paul’s assertion that border walls will be used to keep us in rather than illegals out. We are not in a good place.

      Relax. This is the same gang that couldn’t put together a simple website for Obamacare. And a corrupt, failing narco-terrorist state like Mexico is not the place most Americans would flee to anyway.

      I suspect the real reason for the Biden* administration’s sudden interest in border security is due to a fear of Islamofascist terrorists flooding across the southern US border to cause economic disruption.

    Wouldn’t it be more efficient to wall in bad communities?

Will resume in what timeframe and in what quantity?

I’m trying to figure out how the Capitol fence would look like if it only extended about 3/4 around the building, with sections being nothing more than a few strands of string, and the TV cameras covering it were turned off every night. Oh, and put bundles of twenty dollar bills on the Capitol grounds like Easter eggs.

this makes Biden an evil racist, doesn’t it?

I believe that this announcement is regarding an unfinished ‘levy’ /border wall.

In other words the halt to ‘border wall’ construction had the consequence of halting the upgrade of this levy because the border wall was incorporated into the levy.

There have been two criticisms of the border wall project:
1) poor design, questioning its effectiveness (can drones do a better job along dessert portions of the border?)
2) the general idea that undocumented immigration is a net positive to the economy.

The first has to be argued segment by segment, and apparently the Corps of Engineers agrees that this segment should continue, at taxpayer expense.

The second argument has been greatly affected by COVID and the post-COVID economic response. In fairness, whatever data was marshalled in the pre-COVID wall debate, must be thrown out as no longer applicable to the new economic facts.

Slowly, the Uniparty is trying to pivot away from their own disastrously unpopular policies and into Trump’s wildly popular policies. They know they are heading for a bloodbath next year and can’t possibly steal that many local elections. I suspect the game plan is for the Uniparty platform to be assumed by Cheney’s new Turd Party so they can take the fall while their ilk is dumped onto the trash heap of history.

It won’t work because the real power right now is with Trump and the more he is bashed or ignored, the more powerful he gets. We are NOT in the “post-Trump” era however squishes lurking among us tell us we are.

Ya know, there’s an easier, cheaper way to significantly slow the stampede at our southern border: stop the G damn candy! Not allowing ILLEGAL ALIENS to live off the tax payer once they get here is an awfully big deterrent. There will be those who want to enter our country ILLEGALLY no matter what, so, yes, the wall will help. However, what a big difference it would make by not rewarding ILLEGAL entry into our country with welfare and food stamps, and every other damn free thing that’s given them while the rest of us have to break our hind quarters paying for it.
