Walls, walls, walls! There’s the Great Wall of China used for…what was it? Oh, yeah. Defense. Then there was Hadrian’s Wall. That was constructed for…[whispering]…defense. The Walls of Troy were also an amazing construction. When the Trojan Horse approached the walls, the soldiers hidden inside the wooden structure went to so much trouble because the walls of the city had withstood 10 years of siege! So, I guess one could say the Walls were used for…okay, well, you get the picture.
President Trump reiterated more times than can be counted that he was going to build the wall on our southern border and, apparently he meant it. With all the flurry of activity here and there on reinforcement of existing structures that are considered adequate, as well as an “invisible fence” type enforcement of the border where a combination of air and ground patrols will be used to ensure compliance with immigration laws in more remote locations, to the readying of constructing brand new walls with an upcoming funding bill being fought over in Congress, it appears that the President is following through on his promises.
A new announcement by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has blindsided Mexico, who have been informed that the border wall would be initiated in the nation demarcation between San Diego, California, and Mexico. According to statistics and research, this is the densest illegal alien activity in the country and that both countries will see the construction begin very soon!
The Gateway Pundit:
Despite opposition from the media, Democrats and RINO Republicans, President Trump is moving forward with construction of the border wall. U.S. officials will begin easing environment laws for the border near San Diego.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said on Tuesday it would waive environmental and related laws in order to expedite building security-related barriers and roads along the nation’s border with Mexico near San Diego.
The projects would focus on about 15 miles (24 km) of the frontier extending eastward from the Pacific Ocean as part of President Donald Trump’s planned wall between the United States and Mexico, the DHS said in a statement. It said the area is one of the busiest U.S. border sections.
“The sector remains an area of high illegal entry for which there is an immediate need to improve current infrastructure and construct additional border barriers and roads,” the DHS said.
The department will oversee the installation of extra barriers, roads, lights, cameras and sensors on the border under the authority of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA) of 1996, the statement said.
The act grants the secretary of homeland security authority to waive requirements to comply with various laws to ensure the building of barriers and roads, while being mindful of cultural and environmental impacts, the statement said.
It’s no surprise the mainstream media has not yet figured out President Trump is a keen strategist with his eye always on the prize. And that prize, is the wall.
With the current government funding bill running out in September, a few key allies of the president within the Congressional leadership have promised that they will force a government shutdown if the new spending initiatives do not include funding for border wall construction.
It’s a safe bet that Trump will finally be able to reap the rewards of having kept his promises to the American people, but I wonder how many RINOs and Democrats will end up politically throwing themselves on their on their own swords in the interim. Let’s hope it’s quite a view.
