    Just In: Biden’s DHS CANCELS All Remaining Border Wall Contracts in 2 Overwhelmed Sectors; Calls on Congress to Fund “Smarter” Border Security As Unprecedented Numbers of Illegals Continue Pouring Across Areas With NO WALL

    By Julian Conradson

    Last year, while Trump was still commander-in-chief, Americans were enjoying the most secure southern border they’d had in their lives. Trump had delivered on his promise to build the wall, which had severely limited the areas where cartels and smugglers could operate freely and made it much harder for people to sneak across without being apprehended.

    Although construction was not completely finished (most of it was, the swamp fought at every turn for 4 years to interrupt any progress), the entirety of it was paid in full, and all of the contracts were signed – all that was needed was a little bit more time.

    In other words, despite the areas that still needed to be completed, the wall was a resounding success.

    But now, Biden’s DHS is ensuring that the wall will not be built, wasting hundreds of millions in taxpayer money that was supposed to be spent on building the wall in the process.

    On Friday, the DHS announced in a press release that it will be canceling any border barrier contracts that are still in effect in two of the most heavily trafficked sectors on the southern border – The Laredo sector and The Rio Grande Valley Sector – and will reallocate the remaining funds to conduct “environmental planning” in the area.

    The DHS will also ask Congress to approve more funding for what they call “smarter” border security measures.

    I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t trust anything coming from these charlatans as “smarter,” these are the same people who – in just 10 short months – have caused this unprecedented mess after being handed the most secure border in history. If these crooks are given any more taxpayer money to put towards the border, it will just be used to import and pay off more illegal democrat voters.

    Biden and these sellouts don’t care one bit about stopping illegal immigrants from flooding the US or protecting Americans, the crisis on the border is all about seizing power for the long run.

    They were even willing to spend a whopping $5 million PER DAY to NOT build the wall.

    The severely understaffed US authorities who are struggling with the record-shattering influx of illegal aliens on the southern border could be using all the help they can get right now as they are preparing for another unprecedented month of crossings – but instead, the open-borders Biden administration has undermined them and US immigration law at every turn, while also continuing to encourage unvetted foreign nationals to come in droves by offering up taxpayer-funded incentives and bogus amnesty that shields them from deportation.

    The DHS should be demanding that Biden send in the US Military to get a handle on the border crisis, not wasting hundreds of millions of dollars that was already spent on contracts to finish the wall.

    Department of Homeland Security… What a JOKE.

    DHS Mayorkas Rejects Congress, Cancels Border Wall Contracts

    DHS Mayorkas Rejects Congress, Cancels Border Wall Contracts



    by NEIL MUNRO 9 Oct 2021

    The nation’s border chief is cancelling contracts to finish construction of the border wall, even though Congress voted to build the border wall, according to a press release from Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

    “They have been directed to build a border wall by Congress [and] they’re just canceling the contracts because they don’t care what Congress does,” said one Hill staffer, who added:

    Congress certainly should [sue the agency], but it won’t until after Republicans take back control. The [congressional] Democrats are not interested in [preserving the] powers of Congress unless the President is of a party they don’t like.

    However, “the people in South Texas probably can [sue] because they can say they’re the ones being harmed specifically by the Executive Branch not enforcing or not following the law,” the source added.

    In general, it is illegal for agencies to refuse to spend appropriated money.

    The Oct. 8 announcement comes as DHS chief Alejandro Mayorkas is refusing to implement Congress’s immigration laws, including the laws that require asylum-seekers be held in detention until their pleas for asylum are judged.

    Hundred of migrants have been killed by Mayorkas‘s refusal to enforce the border law.

    Tens of thousands of Haitians left jobs in South America to reach for Mayorkas’s dangled offer of U.S. jobs, but once Biden’s border polls crashed, Mayorkas pitilessly reversed his welcome policies and sent thousands of the South American Haitians — jobless and penniless — over to Haiti.

    Drug smugglers have used Mayorkas’s migration-friendly policies to help move lethal drugs past the overstretched border agents. In 2020, roughly 90,000 Americans were killed by drug addictions.

    At least 800,000 migrants have crossed the border since January because of Mayorkas’s welcome for migrants. This partially open-door policy has allowed many employers to hire low-wage illegal migrants instead of paying decent wages to Americans. His loose labor policy also rewards employers who refuse to hire and train millions of sidelined Americans, including homeless drug addicts in Pennsylvania.

    Mayorkas is a Cuban-born refugee. He is an immigration zealot who insists that Americans’ homeland must be a “Nation of Immigrants,” regardless of the impact to Americans’ wealth and society, and also insists that the “dignity” of migrants must be the “foremost” priority of the agency.

    Mayorkas’s DHS statement tries to dodge Congressional authority by claiming it may, eventually, some time in the future, build a wall, but only after spending much time and money talking about building a wall:

    Until and unless Congress cancels those funds, the law requires DHS to use the funds consistent with their appropriated purpose, and beginning environmental planning activities is part of the Department’s plan to do so.

    For example, the wall construction money will be used to host meetings with opponents of the wall, the statement says:

    Environmental planning activities will cover projects funded with DHS’s Fiscal Year 2018-2021 barrier system appropriations where construction had not started. These activities include additional biological, cultural, and natural resource surveys for project areas where no data have been previously collected. CBP will also conduct comprehensive and targeted outreach with interested stakeholders, including impacted landowners, tribes, state and local elected officials, and federal agencies.

    These activities will not involve any construction of new border barrier or permanent land acquisition.

    In February, several Republicans voted to confirm Mayorkas, despite numerous warnings from critics.

    The Republicans who voted for Mayorkas were Sens.. Shelley Moore Capito (R-VA), Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rob Portman (R-OH), Mitt Romney (R-UT), and Dan Sullivan (R-AK).

    Cuban born Mayorkas needs to be FIRED, stripped of his citizenship, and sent back to Cuba!

    He is the FACE of why we need to end all immigration. Terminate TPS, asylum and refugee programs!

    They destroy their countries and are destroying ours.

    Biden to Cancel Border Wall Projects in Texas

    Biden to Cancel Border Wall Projects in Texas

    by RANDY CLARK 9 Oct 2021

    The Department of Homeland Security plans to terminate all remaining border wall projects in the Border Patrol’s Laredo and Rio Grande Valley Sectors. The projects have been paused since January as the agency pondered a final determination to cancel the projects or allow some to continue. The decision brings finality to all remaining projects in South Texas.

    In the Friday announcement, DHS will begin initial preparations to conduct environmental site work and stakeholder outreach on other Congressionally approved border wall projects that the administration cannot cancel unilaterally. The administration promises not to construct any new border barrier systems or execute permanent land acquisition related to these projects.

    According to the statement:

    Environmental planning activities will cover projects funded with DHS’s Fiscal Year 2018-2021 barrier system appropriations where construction had not started. These activities include additional biological, cultural, and natural resource surveys for project areas where no data have been previously collected. CBP will also conduct comprehensive and targeted outreach with interested stakeholders, including impacted landowners, tribes, state and local elected officials, and federal agencies.

    These activities will not involve any construction of new border barrier or permanent land acquisition.

    The Biden administration is calling for Congress to cancel the remaining border wall funding appropriated during the Trump administration and instead fund “smarter border security measures,” such as technology and modernization of land ports of entry. Unless Congress cancels the funding, the administration is obligated to exhaust the appropriated funds towards the border barrier projects already funded.

    As reported by Breitbart Texas, nearly $6 million per day was exhausted on the paused border wall projects along the southwest border. The money was spent on materials, idled equipment, and make-safe job site activities. The 60-day pause to reach a final determination on the projects, initiated immediately after President Joe Biden took office, has lingered on for nearly nine months at significant expense to the taxpayer.

    The administration, obligated to pursue previously funded border barrier projects, will likely slow-roll the environmental process and stakeholder engagement efforts. This delay will likely add to the cost borne by taxpayer projects the current administration has no intention of completing.
