So, Joe Biden has decided to build a border wall

Joe Biden and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas are admitting defeat without actually admitting defeat. Mayorkas now says there is “an acute and immediate” need for barriers and roads along the border.

Why didn’t someone think of that?

Mayorkas cited the urgency of waiving regulations in order to build a wall. This is all you need to hear in order to understand just how much pressure this Democrat administration is under from other Democrats over the Biden border crisis. Democrats have finally awakened and discovered a true humanitarian and national security crisis on the southern border because of the number of illegal aliens coming into sanctuary cities (blue cities) across the country. Once the illegals show up and are in need of city and county services, well, suddenly we have a border crisis.

The Biden administration announced it waived 26 federal laws in South Texas Wednesday. These waivers are the administration’s first use of a broad executive power that was often used during the Trump administration. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted the announcement on the U.S. Federal Registry. There were few details about the construction in Starr County, Texas. This is part of a busy Border Patrol sector that is seeing “high illegal entry.” About 245,000 illegal entries have been recorded in the region during the current fiscal year.

“There is presently an acute and immediate need to construct physical barriers and roads in the vicinity of the border of the United States in order to prevent unlawful entries into the United States in the project areas,” Alejandro Mayorkas, the DHS secretary, stated in the notice.

The Clean Air Act, Safe Drinking Water Act and Endangered Species Act were some of the federal laws waived by DHS to make way for construction that will use funds from a congressional appropriation in 2019 for border wall construction. The waivers avoid time-consuming reviews and lawsuits challenging violation of environmental laws.

Starr County’s hilly ranchlands, sitting between Zapata and McAllen, Texas, is home to about 65,000 residents sparsely populating about 1,200 square miles (3,108 square kilometers) that form part of the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge.

This will be an additional 20 miles to the existing border barrier system in the area. I can just see all the conservation groups lining up to file lawsuits to stop the construction. You know it’s coming.

“The other concern that we have is that area is highly erosive. There’s a lot of arroyos,” Eloy Vera, the county judge said, pointing out the creeks cutting through the ranchland and leading into the river.

Concern is shared with environmental advocates who say structures will run through public lands, habitats of endangered plants and species like the Ocelot, a spotted wild cat.

“A plan to build a wall through will bulldoze an impermeable barrier straight through the heart of that habitat. It will stop wildlife migrations dead in their tracks. It will destroy a huge amount of wildlife refuge land. And it’s a horrific step backwards for the borderlands,” Laiken Jordahl, a southwest conservation advocate for the Center for Biological Diversity, said Wednesday afternoon.

Sorry, Laiken. I don’t think the illegal aliens care about the wildlife so we can’t afford to make special allowances either. We have a country to save, borders to secure, and our national sovereignty to recover. The Biden administration is just now – after 3 very long years – admitting something must be done.

Let’s remember how we got here. Joe Biden campaigned on ending everything that was working to secure the southern border. He was (still is) hellbent on proving he is not Trump. The problem is that Trump’s policies and agreements on handling the border worked. They worked well. So, Biden came into office on the very first day and used executive orders to undo everything. Hence, the Biden border crisis. The situation on the ground is so bad that an all-time record number of illegal crossings were recorded in September.

Come back with me to January 20, 2021 when Joe Biden said, “building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border is not a serious policy solution.”

Joe Biden has been wrong about every policy decision he has ever made over a decades long political career. He certainly has not gotten smarter with age. His idea of transforming America is to destroy America. No borders, no country.

Trump’s campaign dinged Biden and his administration’s admission that there is an “immediate need” for a border wall.

“President Trump is always right. That’s why he built close to 500 miles of powerful new wall on the border, and it would have been finished by now. Instead, Crooked Joe Biden turned our country into one giant sanctuary for dangerous criminal aliens,” a Trump campaign spokesperson told Fox News Digital.

You can bet your bottom dollar that the Biden border crisis will be a top issue on the minds of voters in 2024. It is so bad that Democrats are complaining about the open border.

Reality bites, eh, Joe?
