Someone needs to send Biden a MAGA hat because he’s getting ready to build that wall!
The crew at Fox reports on this new development.
The Biden administration will resume construction of the southern border wall, Fox News confirms, as the immigration crisis continues to spiral out of control.
The United States Army Corps of Engineers will restart construction on a 13.4 mile stretch of the wall in the Rio Grande Valley. The decision reportedly follows pressure from local residents and politicians to mend the incessant crossing surge.
For those that forgot, the Harris, I mean Biden administration released an executive order halting all border wall construction the day he took office.
Why would Biden stop the border construction in the first place? Thankfully, the White House website lets us hear straight from Joe.
Like every nation, the United States has a right and a duty to secure its borders and protect its people against threats. But building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border is not a serious policy solution. It is a waste of money that diverts attention from genuine threats to our homeland security.
My Administration is committed to ensuring that the United States has a comprehensive and humane immigration system that operates consistently with our Nation’s values.
In furtherance of that commitment, I have determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border in Proclamation 9844 of February 15, 2019 (Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Southern Border of the United States), was unwarranted.
It shall be the policy of my Administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall.
In January, Joe believed there was no border crisis. He accused President Trump of making it up to gain the support of white nationalists. Building the wall, according to Joe, was not a “serious” policy solution.
Fast forward to May and…
BREAKING: .@FoxNews has confirmed via the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that construction on a 13.4 mile stretch of border wall in the Rio Grande Valley will *RESUME* after pressure from local residents & politicians.
The Biden admin previously halted all wall construction in Jan.

January Joseph Biden would be so ashamed of May Joe Biden.
In predictable fashion, the woke Twitter came out to try and defend their sleepy messiah’s actions.
Not building, repairing damage

Government agencies and contractors even pitched in with some creative wording, swapping out wall building for words like “infrastructure repair.”
In support of CBP’s border infrastructure program, USACE has resumed DHS-funded design & construction support on approx. 13.4 miles of levee in the Rio Grande Valley that were partially excavated or at various levels of construction when work on the wall was paused for review.

These excuses and misdirects try to hide the truth. The southern border is in crisis.
Since his January 20 inauguration, the migrant surge has worsened, as the number of illegal crossings continues to skyrocket and holding facilities have threatened public health in the midst of a pandemic.
According to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), there were a total of 178,622 migrant encounters in April 2021, marking the highest monthly total in 20 years.
For years, the left condescended to Americans, calling anyone who believed in border security a racist. Liberals used the border wall issue as further evidence of Trump’s out of control hatred for minorities.
The real tragedy in all of this is not political, it is human.
The damage of Biden’s actions since he took office will not be found on the hurt feelings of Twitter warriors. It will not simply stop at the tears gently trickling from AOC’s eyes in feigned compassion.

The ramifications of Joe’s poor leadership will be left on the backs of every man, woman and child that is trafficked, exploited and lost along the journey through a broken immigration system.
President Trump tried to fix things for all Americans, present and future. He knew securing the border was the first step to healing the immigration system. The left wouldn’t have it.
It will be interesting to see how history will continue to vindicate #45.
