The Biden Administration announced Wednesday that its members have waived 26 federal laws across South Texas in order to restart construction of the border wall.
“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,” Department of Homeland Security secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said, according to Newsmax.
There were apparently just a few details on the official announcement, which centered on parts of Starr County, Texas. This area is one of the busiest for illegal border crossings. (LEARN MORE: ‘She Can’t Do Dirt’: Million Voices CEO Hilarious Commentary On Kamala Harris Will Have You Roaring)
Picking Up Where Trump Left-Off?
Roughly 450 miles of barriers were erected along the U.S. southern border with Mexico during the Trump Administration. These were predominantly built between 2017 and 2021, when construction was halted by President Joe Biden’s incoming Administration.
At the time, Biden said that “building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border is not a serious policy solution.” (RELATED: More Than 800,000 Illegal Border Crossers Released Into U.S. Without Any Recourse By Biden Administration)
The Biden Administration even auctioned off parts of the border wall in 2023, despite apprehensions continuing to skyrocket.
