Biden Admin Restarts Construction On Border Wall Levee System As Crisis Continues
The Biden administration will restart construction of a southern border wall levee system Fox News confirmed. Joe and Kamala’s left flank will not be happy as solutions for the ongoing border crisis are hard to find.
The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will restart construction on a 13.4 mile stretch of levee in the Rio Grande Valley. The decision, according to Fox News, came after local residents and politicians on both sides of the aisle complained about constant crossings.
A Dem mayor from Del Rio, Texas, Bruno Lozano, a Democrat, ripped the Biden administration on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday: “They keep telling us that the border is under control and I simply do not understand how with a 392% increase this fiscal year alone. Last year, we had 19,724 captures at this point. And right now we’re at 97,398. I simply do not understand how that’s under control.”
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) responded to the Fox report: “In support of CBP’s border infrastructure program, USACE has resumed DHS-funded design & construction support on approx. 13.4 miles of levee in the Rio Grande Valley that were partially excavated or at various levels of construction when work on the wall was paused for review.
“To be clear, wall construction remains paused to extent permitted by law. Per DHS, we’ve started critical work to repair the Rio Grande Valley’s flood levee, which was excavated to make way for border wall. This remediation work will not involve expanding border barrier.”
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) explained in an earlier statement that said:
Today, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced initial steps to protect border communities from physical dangers resulting from the previous administration’s approach to border wall construction.
On his first day in office, President Biden issued a Proclamation terminating the redirection of funds diverted for border wall construction, pausing all wall construction to the extent permitted by law, and requiring Federal agencies to develop a plan for funds concerning the Southern Border wall.
Repair the Rio Grande Valley’s Flood Barrier System: Construction under the prior administration blew large holes into the Rio Grande Valley’s flood barrier system to make way for a border wall.
The flood barrier system had long provided low-lying regions of Hidalgo County, Texas, protection from catastrophic flooding, and these breaches have threatened local communities.
DHS will start work to quickly repair the flood barrier system to protect border communities. This work will not involve expanding the border barrier.
Remediate Dangerous Soil Erosion in San Diego:
Improper compaction of soil and construction materials along a wall segment constructed by the prior administration is causing dangerous erosion along a 14-mile stretch in San Diego, California.
DHS will begin necessary backfill projects to ensure the safety of nearby border communities. This work will not involve expanding the border barrier.
DHS will soon complete a plan that identifies additional measures to address the damage resulting from the prior Administration’s border wall construction.
