Skip to comments.Biden administration to resume border wall construction as crisis worsens
Posted on 05/12/2021 6:54:14 PM PDT by conservative98
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.
Priority repairs of the wall are set to begin in six weeks, followed by the establishment of a concrete levee wall fit with safety barriers in six to nine months.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) explained in a statement that repairs will "protect border communities from physical dangers" left in the wake of the Trump administration's wall construction.
One of President Biden’s first executive orders once taking office immediately halted all border wall construction, and 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.

We told them and we told them, better get back to building that wall....
Well, son of a b!+c#, they are doing it.
will “protect border communities from physical dangers” left in the wake of the Biden administration’s idiocy.
There. Fixed it.
Can he ask AOC and the others to make the official announcement for him? To show they’re behind him all the way.
Like Brutus with Julius Caesar.
The Biden wall? Yeah, right,
Yet again the progs will not learn from this.
Normal American Citizens that support PDJT really do know what is best for the US.
But that will sail right over their hate filled noggins while they are scrambling for spin to take credit for The Wall.
Thank you for some Excellent news!
There are like 200 miles in the Rio Grande Valley and Laredo Sectors, that were funded by direct Congressional appropriation, that they are legally required to execute.
Really top priority segments.
A wall is worthless now because Biden simply allows them to walk in at ports of entry and surrender. He is also sending USPB deep into Mexico to process them.
He will build wall, and fly migrants over it from Mexico city to wherever in the USA they please.
Corps of Engineers is denying a re-start - just patching gaps left in the flood control levees.
“To be clear, wall construction remains paused to extent permitted by law. Per DHS, we’ve started critical work to repair the Rio Grande Valley’s flood levee, which was excavated to make way for border wall. This remediation work will not involve expanding border barrier.”
Doesn’t matter. They simply have to walk across at an entry point, and they are processed in. Also Biden sent a couple of hundred USBP agents to the Mexico/Guatemala border.
They will soon process migrants in Mexico, and fly them in.
His wall work is a total fake.
Biden practically invites illegal aliens in with promises of free everything and couldn’t foresee this? He really is an idiot.
The idiots know the US is under construction contract and will still have to pay whether or not there’s activity.
Well, well, well.
Not holding my breath for the Hollyweirdos to trash Biden about The Wall on Twitter.
