President Biden has something to hide about the southern border. He wants no one to find out.
But Joe Biden’s secret about the southern border has finally been revealed.
Joe Biden back during the 2020 election cycle claimed that President Trump’s policies in handling the security of the southern border were ineffective and even counterproductive.
He peddled the Leftist propaganda talking point that somehow a physical border on the southern border wouldn’t work in deterring illegal immigration.
The Leftists would prefer just leaving the border “open for business,” so to speak, for potential illegal immigrants.
Upon “winning” the race for the White House and being inaugurated, Biden swiftly decided executively from the Oval Office to stop any Trump-era southern border building and fortifying.
After stopping the Trump administration’s efforts to secure the southern border, it seems the Biden administration has reconsidered.
Several news outlets have picked up word that the Biden administration is secretly back to building up the gaps in the U.S. southern border.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The Biden administration has begun quietly filling in small portions of unfenced areas on the southern border where it had abruptly halted Trump-era projects after the president waged a brutal campaign condemning the idea of a wall.
The Department of Homeland Security is halfway through filling in 129 gaps in border wall projects after President Joe Biden had abruptly halted the remaining 300 miles of Trump-era wall construction when he took office in January 2021, according to DHS agency U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
It’s clear that the initial action of the Biden administration to halt any and all Trump-era border security fortification was a political posturing move.
Joe Biden and the Democrats, after Biden took office in January of 2021, wanted to get a “win” with their radical base by sticking it to the bad orange man who was President before Biden.
The idea was that Joe Biden was somehow going to turn America around after it had been supposedly ravaged by the Trump tenure.
But quickly, Americans have learned that the Biden tenure has been far, far worse on the issue of immigration than the Trump administration.
There have been unprecedented levels of illegal immigration pouring over the southern border, and violent crime and illegal drugs continue to make their way into the southern states like Texas, New Mexico, and even as far east as Florida.
The Washington Examiner notes that in 2021 and 2022, the Biden administration conducted studies to determine whether it should resume the reconstruction of southern border barriers that it stopped in January in 2021.
Anyone with half a brain could’ve told you that, yeah, fortifying the southern border can only be a good thing. The Democrats in the Biden administration were merely using this gap as a cool-down period.
Americans could forget about his initial decision in January of 2021, as many have, and then after time has passed he can resume the Trump-era policies that were effective.
Mr. Ken Oliver, the director of the organization Right on Immigration argues that the Biden administration was never going to get away with stopping the Trump-era policies that were “duly” appropriated.
“There never was any legitimate justification for waiting nearly 2 1/2 years to get around to doing construction that should have never stopped and that should have been completed by now,” Mr. Oliver said.
The studies conducted in 2021 and 2022 found that the Biden administration should at least fill in 129 gaps that exist in the southern border, as such they have resumed the building.
This contradicts what Joe Biden said in August of 2020 when he said in an interview with the left-wing radio show NPR that there wouldn’t be “another foot of wall constructed on my administration.”
Joe Biden may have thought he could get away with pulling a fast one on the American people, but we’re onto his case.
