From the looks of it, a continuation of the border wall construction might happen during the Biden administration. In a conversation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials last week, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas brought up the possibility. He reportedly told department employees that he may restart border wall construction. This can help plug what he called “gaps” in the current barrier.

President Joe Biden already gave the order to cancel the building of the border wall. The President also ordered officials to divert its budget. However, Mayorkas might find that the current situation leaves enough room to make decisions on finishing some “gaps in the wall.” 

Border Plans

According to ICE session notes reviewed by The Washington Times, Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the wall, submitted a plan for what it wants to see happen moving forward. “It’s not a single answer to a single question. There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented and the acting commissioner of CBP presented to me,” the secretary said.

“The president has communicated quite clearly his decision that the emergency that triggered the devotion of DOD funds to the construction of the border wall is ended,” Mayorkas said. “But that leaves room to make decisions as the administration, as part of the administration, in particular areas of the wall that need renovation, particular projects that need to be finished,” he said. The secretary said those parts include gaps, gates, and completed areas but without any technology installed. 

Hordes Taking Advantage of Gaps in the Border Wall Construction

Migrants take advantage of gaps in the border wall amid halted construction under President Biden, a border agent told The New York Post. Meanwhile, another border official told Fox News described the situation as “insane” while he attended to a group of 13 Brazilian migrants. These migrants huddled up near a 100-foot gap in the fence in Otay Mesa, Calif. “The project is three-quarters done. At least, they should be allowed to tie together the primary fence. Otherwise, we’re trying to catch these people in the worst possible place. It’s just sucking our manpower,” the agent continued.

Reportedly, smugglers send groups of asylum seekers through the gaps to overwhelm the agents. When agents approach to intercept or apprehend one group, another one dashes across another area. 

Biden’s 60-day Moratorium on Border Wall Construction Expired March 21

It’s been half a month since Biden’s 60-day order halting border wall construction expired. The order, signed by Biden during his first day, ordered a two-month hold on military construction on the previous president’s border wall. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin were due to present the commander-in-chief with a plan on how to proceed on former President Donald Trump’s border wall construction on March 21, according to Biden’s own presidential proclamation.

The New York Post requested the White House for comment. They have yet to receive a reply whether Mayorkas and Austin already made a final recommendation to the president, or if the administration will continue with the border wall. Without any new directions, numerous migrants through the gaps to reach the US border. Meanwhile, thousands of tons of steel and construction equipment sit idle as migrant groups walking through gaps in the sites.

    This idiot is the worst thing that ever has happend to this country, socialist!

  • Nancy H Hughes says:

    Stop with the ” tear down the Republicans and Trump” and examine more carefully what was done
    before unravelling. This applies to several of present policy changes made recently.

  • jimmie Badgett says:

    Stopping the construction of the wall was a stupid and political mistake

  • Richard Weston says:

    Biden, the crippled, blind and just plain stupidity of all the executive orders done just to undo anything by Trump regardless of the consequences

  • Vicki Young says:

    We need a secure border. It makes NO sense to leave the borders open to disease, drugs and criminals. People should come to America the legal way. Apply for citizenship first before being able to cross the border.

  • Charley Jenkins says:

    The only thing you will ever see from this administration is the children that are being trafficked by the cartel as always you will never get the truth from this administration

  • James says:

    It only makes sense to continue building the border wall. You don’t need to be a scholar to add up how to stop the flow of migrants across the open border. Stop analyzing and start doing.

  • kenneth dinges says:

    build the nrest of wall do at least one thing right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Brandon baker says:

    Well let’s see 86million dollars to put illegals in Motels/Hotels which tax payers pay for. So if tax payers paying that why not put on wall? That’s 86 million for wall. These kids coming over is putting themselves in great danger believing in a lie Joe said. If this administration cared so much about children then why put Americans children in danger? By not funding the wall to full construction and letting in untreated illegals. What diseases they bring in if any? Spreading to American families? How much cartel made profit off smuggling there drugs and guns to our kids in America? Finish the wall. If scared to do your jobs as this administration appears to be step aside let the big boys take back over and get the job done. Everyone God bless and be safe. Keep hope America needs faith.

  • Cat kin says:

    Do at least one thing right and finish the wall. The drug trafficers and cartel are ruining the US Quit trying to undo all the good Trump did. Be a man and Fess Up that you were wrong. That was one of your promises too. We are your people not the over the border people. This is our country too. If your grandchildren lived near tge border wouldnt you want them protected from all of this?

  • james mattix says:

    I understand they are chartering busses and aircraft to move these illegals into the USA. Let’s just send those busses and aircraft south instead.

  • Tracie M Morris says:

    So it’s a LAW he stopped. That isn’t legal. His pen cannot overturn laws. What a mindless spineless idiot. Not my president.

  • Cathie Smith says:

    Finish the wall. Send every illegal back across the border with instructions on how to come into the U.S.A. thru proper channels. This includes the children. They have parents, the parents need to raise them not U.S. taxpayers. Biden has and still is sending illegals the wrong messages.

  • Huapakechi says:

    If the collection of dupes and idiots who stole the last election do not finish the wall they will have to put troops on the border with orders to shoot those coming across illegally.

  • John Deck says:

    Continuing the wall needs to happen and NOW. The IDOITS in Washington D.C. are playing like a bunch of little children. Trump was CORRECT this should never have been stopped. Get the job done.

  • Brandi Baldwin says:

    I don’t understand why this was ever an option. The United States enacted appropriate and legal channels into which a foreigner can enter this country. Our country needs to DEMAND and ENFORCE these laws and stop allowing everyone that wants to enter a free pass – a free pass to education, welfare, any and all US funded benefits, etc. Also, there is no check and balance system when having these people come over without any identification, criminal history, or medical history known to the American people. In my opinion, they are already considered criminals because they are arriving here illegally and they know they are breaking the law.

  • KevinK says:

    This so called leader( yeah right) of ours is a total idiot and liar. And they bitched about Trump. It’s the old let’s undo anything the Republicans did even if it ruins the country, kind of like it’s the grand plan. Hopefully we can fix it in 2 years. Keep up the fight everyone!

  • Troy Redmon says:

    I never thought that in my lifetime some group of idiots could highjack the government and ruin America just for greed and power. We are allowing this to happen! Wake up and do something Americans!

  • Nonnie says:

    We need that wall. It is the only humane way to stop this surge of migrants. I feel sorry for the people but there has to be a legal and humane way for people to approach America. Biden created this problem but is hiding from his responsibility. People need to be checked out before allowed to come over — no criminals, not cartels.

  • Herb says:

    Stopping the building of the wall is nothing more than a showing of how much they despised President Trump and nothing more. They’re so set against him, they would destroy this country, rather than admitting he was right.

  • carole says:

    Unconsciounable to let in children w 10-15% coviid19 positive rate at this time! Coup them up very close quarters and ivirus city! My God, were they vaccinaed? No but they did receive in person schooling from SanDiego teachers not allowed to teach American students in person!

    As Americans we have the knowledge & manpower to finish the wall ourselves! Every able bodied American can help! Then No more crises, through cooperation & pulling together the American people can accomplish anything.

    That is real security. Knowing your neighbors & protecting your family and Nation. No other country in the world has an unprotected unpatrolled border like we do.

  • ROBERT A. ABADIE says:

    WELL HERE WE GO. THE ASS HOLE STOPPED THE WALL BECAUSE TRUMP BUILT IT. NO OTHER REASON. NOW THE ONLY REASON THIS SHIT EATER IS THINKING ABOUT BUILDING IT AGAIN IS THE PEOPLE OF THIS

    I can hardly wait to see who the 1st person in your family or administration is that is robbed, murdered or maimed by one of your ‘cheap votes’….and it’s ALL your doing!

  • David says:

    This administation is such a failure in every way. The border is a complete catastrophe! Why were there President Trump in diaper balloons yet this moron acts like a petulant little 3 year old, drooling, blubbering, reversing anything President Trump achieved just because it was him! Between him, kamala, the vp candidate (chosen solely because she has a vagina and some color to her skin. How demeaning) Psaki, who seems not to have a brain cell in her head! Its like watching a really bad circus!

  • yvonne silva says:

    Completing the wall will interrupt the Cartels income from illegals and re-sale of “China White” heroine. Mexican mafia spended billions lobbying against Trump wall.

  • The professor says:

    Nancy….. Nancy Pelosi… all these illegal children coming into the United States they would like to have some ice cream why don’t you go down to the border with several hundred gallons of your ice cream and dish some of it out to them …. and sleepy Joe can go with you and put on his clown suit and entertain them …. imagine all the publicity you’ll get you’ll be on the cover of all the great magazines newspapers think about it Nancy …. and bring Hunter with you he could stuff some ice cream up his nose pretending it’s Coke and the kids will get a good laugh out of that !!!!

  • Kathleen Barrett says:

    ALL CORRUPTION!!! i wish the whole country would go to D C AND DEMAND LAW AND GOVERNMENT FOR THE PEOPLE!! WENEED TO LET THESE A-HOLES KNOW WHO IS IN CHARGE!!!

  • Joe Amadeo says:

    Why haven’t our Generals acted in a manner befitting the Constitution? They can clearly see the corrupted election that has put an illegally elected President in office, replacing the duly elected President, Donald Trump. And now, Biden is creating a national security crisis in our country. It is long past time for the Generals to overthrow this false President and announce new elections that will be held within 60 days under their purview.

  • Jim Evans says:

    This is a history to all who made posts on here about the WALL. First of all it is legally called a FENCE. Her is the proof . The ” Secure Fence Act ” of 2006 , also labelled as H.R.6061 , is an act of The United States Congress , which authorized and partially funded the construction of 700 miles of Fencing , along the Mexican , United States border. This was during the Administration of George W. Bush , and NOT Donald Trump. Also at that time , it was voted FOR by Joe Biden ans Charles Schumer, which can be found buy looking up the 109th Congress of 2005-2006 , which lists every Senator who voted for or against it. On a side note, the fencing built under the 2006 Fence Act was not the first border fencing in the U.S. The U.S. Border Patrol first began to erect physical barries in the San Diego, California sector in 1990 . Fourteen miles of fencing was erected along the border of San Diego , and Tijuana , Mexico

  • GEORGE CHARLES KRISKO, JR. says:

    BOTH BIDEN AND HIS “GIGGLING” VP ARE JOKES AND A DISCRASE TO OUR COUNTRY.

  • David says:

    All I can do is laugh at them.

  • Vicki Flam says:

    I will NEVER recognize Joe Biden as my President. Not only did HUNTER and JOE BIDEN fleece the Ukrainian people of 114 Million dollars, they stole the money from Ukrainians? NO politician or their family members should ever capitalize by their elected positions in this country. To do so makes the American people look foolish and responsible and compliant with such behavior. It was called Burisma and it is all over the internet. Read it and you will know the truth. The Biden’s profited from it, and it was unethical and unlawful to do so. True and knowledgeable Americans know this Presidential election was stolen by the Democrats. If people in the USA watched the election results reported in other countries on election night, they would have witnessed their numbers following those in the USA. UNTIL LATE AT NIGHT AFTER MOST AMERICANS WENT TO BED WITH TRUMP LEADING IN THE POLLS. Late in the night after most Americans slept the Dominion machines added massive fake ballots in favor of Joe Biden. The USA polls showed spiked numbers for Biden while Trump votes were removed resulting in a STOLEN election. In other countries the voting results were still reflecting in favor of Trump. Their is evidence recorded on film of ballot counters being told to go home as they were done counting ballots. After those people left the other ballot counters that remained, pulled out boxes and boxes of ballots from under draped tables. They proceeded to run them through the Dominion machines and many of them were run through several times. Clearly demonstrating election fraud. The evidence was shown on tape and was then aired several times after the election on national television. Still nothing was done about this. WHY?…
    Donald Trump said January 19 that “1 in 3 migrant women is sexually assaulted on the dangerous journey north, “ In fact, many loving mothers give their young daughters birth control pills for the long journey up to the United States because they know they may be raped or sexually accosted or assaulted.” Now Joe Biden is President and he has irresponsibly opened the southern borders to immigrants and sadly unaccompanied migrant children, MS 13 gang members, drug cartels and worse. The immigrants will come and more women and children will be raped, impregnated, sexually assaulted and many of them in US immigrant custody. SHAME ON BIDEN, SHAME ON CUSTOMS AGENTS WHO USE THEIR POSITIONS TO RAPE WOMEN AND CHILDREN. The evidence is there for all to read it if you take the time to read it. Complacent Americans bear the shame of not raising a voice to the current Biden Administration. We must all do what is necessary to STOP the new administration from letting this happen.
    The news today was that a very young female child unaccompanied was repeatedly raped and violated to the point she has not spoken since the violent assaults on her. IS NO ONE OUTRAGED OVER THIS SENSELESS ACT OF REPEATED RAPE AND SEXUAL VIOLENCE PERPETRATED UPON A INNOCENT YOUNG CHILD? I am a mother of two, a son and daughter, and a grandmother of two girls and a boy and I cannot imagine the horror of such a vile thing for any child to endure. My heart is breaking for this little girl. Where were her parents, the police or even God? Who condones the irresponsible violence perpetrated on innocent young children? I look to responsible leadership to lead by integrity, morals and the laws we all must live by. I do not however see that Joe Biden is that leader.
    Joe Biden’s speeches do demonstrate the mental deficiencies that limit him from making sound responsible decisions. This is evident by his openly irresponsible decision at our southern borders concerning illegal immigrants. I look to the parents of this beautiful little girl, who sent her off on a long unsafe and perilous journey alone. She will never forget the violent rapes and brutality she endured coming to the promised land America.
    God help us all for our complacency in allowing this to happen to any child. We the people have a voice and need to use it calling, writing, emailing, messaging our State Governors, Senators, Congressmen and yes even the President of the United States. We must shout our outrage to every politician in office that controls any US State, County, and Town or municipality. The shameful repeated sexual abuse, assaults, rapes and violence upon women, adolescents or very young children must stop. We all have a moral and religious and voice, that can help stop the insanity of women and children. Please use the information you are armed with to peacefully effect change. Do the right and moral thing because it is the right thing to do.. The hope is that not one more woman nor child suffers violent or sexual degradation or death. The Democratic Party is not in control of this crisis and they are making bad decisions that look more like a dictatorship than a Democracy.
    Further Joe Biden is attacking the USA Constitution and our second Amendment rights. The second amendment of the US Constitution reads ”A WELL REGULATED MILITIA, BEING NECESSARY TO THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” In other words folks our Constitution affords all Americans the right to arm ourselves, and yes to fight against tyranny and the infringement of our freedoms. Even to the point of not allowing other countries or our own politicians or President to INFRINGE UPON THOSE RIGHTS. FREEDOM IS NOT FREE AS HISTORY HAS SHOWN US. We cannot allow an individual President, nor Congress collectively to INFRINGE ON THESE RIGHTS. TO DO SO MEANS WE CAN BE ATTACKED DOMESTICALLY OR BY FOREIGN INFLUENCE. To allow our freedoms to be attacked one at a time, is a direct assault on the American people and our rights as such.
    Further we collectively as citizens of these United States MUST protect ourselves from any influences that attacks these principles. Without an in tact effective Constitution our rights will chip away one at a time until we do not recognize the United States as a great nation. Freedom represents the principles that affords all Americans the right to live our lives in pursuit of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and without Infringement of those rights. NO President has the right to infringe upon or attack those rights. ANY PERSON ACTING AGAINST AMERICAN RIGHTS AND INFRINGES UPON ANY PART OR WHOLE OF THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION, BECOMES A DICTATOR AND NOT A TRUE AMERICAN AND PATRIOTIC LEADER. Wake yourselves America and let your voice be heard. Now is the time that tries men’s souls!

  • Donald Marc St Germain says:

    President Biden is in office whether we like it not. He should admit his mistake and finish the wall. It was one of Trumps best accomplishments. Just knowing it was being built was a powerful deterrent and it will be one again if it’s construction is restarted

  • Leah Booth says:

    The wall is 1 of Trumps best accomplished acts that this sad Biden Admin. Is destroying. We need the wall to be finished ASAP to stop the flood of illegal immigrants from adding to the United States already strained country.The threat of Covid-19 issues should be 1 reason we want the wall back in construction as well. I’m completely disgusted how Biden made it in to office & can’t believe I’m having to comment on this. Good Luck my fellow Americans.
