Biden Administration considers building more border wall to finish projects, fill in ‘gaps’
The Department of Homeland Security is considering reversing course and building more sections of the southern border wall.
According to a source close to the situation, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told employees that he may start building the Southern Border wall again in order to fill in some of the ‘gaps.’
President Joe Biden stopped the construction of the U.S. Mexico border wall almost immediately after taking office but that move, in addition to his ‘open border’ free healthcare campaign promises has resulted in an overwhelming crisis at the border.
According to Mayorkas there is some wiggle room in the president’s order which will allow for gaps in the wall to be finished.
In addition, Mayorkas said that the border patrol chief and the acting commissioner of the CBP have presented him with different projects that need to be finished with the border wall.
Preliminary numbers show that more than 171,000 illegal migrants were apprehended last month, including nearly 20,000 unaccompanied minors.
