Partial Border Wall Construction to Resume, but Biden Admin Says it’s to Prevent ‘Catastrophic Flooding’

Border Wall

Is there an executive order to reverse an executive order that reversed an executive order? Biden needs one. The Biden administration just loves using mother nature as an excuse; probably because she can’t fight back in the media. On Wednesday, Fox reporter Bill Melugin tweeted “UPDATE: @FoxNews has confirmed via the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that construction on a 13.4 mile stretch of border wall levee in the Rio Grande Valley will *RESUME* after pressure from local residents & politicians. The Biden admin previously halted all construction.”

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) announced on Twitter “Wall construction remains paused to the extent permitted by law. Per DHA, 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 also wanted to explain that the wall build is simply to “protect border communities from physical dangers” but not the migrant crisis, no, due to the “large holes” that were blown into the Rio Grande Valley’s flood barrier system to make way for the wall which, as a result, requires repairs to prevent “catastrophic flooding.”

No mention of the horrendous migrant crisis, just flood risks. Democrat Del Rio, Texas Mayor Bruno Lozano told “Fox & Friends” of the crisis and the Biden administration, “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” added Lozano. Fox News reports for the first time, members of the Mexican military were spotted in Del Rio, Texas patrolling the opposite shoreline and detaining migrants with plans of crossing the Rio Grande. But alas, it’s simply the “catastrophic flooding” issue that the administration is addressing.
