The clown show that is the Biden Administration continues. With tens of thousands of migrants arriving in blue states and cities around the country, Democratic leaders are calling on President Biden to take action on the border and to help alleviate overwhelmed governments.
Less than two days after reports emerged that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said, in an official document, that there is “an acute and immediate need to construct physical barriers” along the US border- while the Biden administration waived 26 federal laws to build more border wall amid a record flood of immigrants, the DHS boss has tried to backpedal.
More lies, just in time for the election.
“There is no new administration policy with respect to the border wall,” said Mayorkas in a statement.
“From day one, this Administration has made clear that a border wall is not the answer. That remains our position and our position has never wavered. The language in the Federal Register notice is being taken out of context and it does not signify any change in policy whatsoever,” the statement continues.
You can’t make this stuff up.
This is completely opposite of what the Biden White has been saying, as well as what the Democrats have cried about over the last 7 years. This is just months after the Biden administration was caught selling portions of Trump’s border wall on a government surplus website, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is calling it an “acute and immediate need” to waive dozens of federal laws in order to build a border wall in south Texas as the illegal immigration crisis grows out of control.
“The Secretary of Homeland Security has determined, pursuant to law, that it is necessary to waive certain laws, regulations, and other legal requirements in order to ensure the expeditious construction of barriers and roads in the vicinity of the international land border in Starr County, Texas,” reads a notice posted to the U.S. Federal Registry that Fox News obtained.
In light of the surge in illegal immigration, Mayorkas found that there exists 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.”
Grab some popcorn and let’s watch the clown show as the administration and media to spin this.
