A border official revealed that hordes of illegal immigrants are exploiting loopholes in the border wall amid a halt in construction under President Biden.
“This is crazy,” a border official He talks to Fox News He said while attending a group of 13 Brazilian immigrants near a 100-foot gap in the fence in Utai Mesa, California.
“Three quarters of the project has been completed. At least they should be allowed to tie the main fence together. Otherwise, we are trying to arrest these people in the worst possible place. It is just an absorption of our human power,” the agent added.
The agent told the network that smugglers are sending groups of asylum seekers through vulnerabilities to overwhelm the agents. When agents leave to intercept or capture one group, another group rushes through it.
More than eleven days have passed since President Biden’s 60-day halt to construction of the border wall ended, as hordes of immigrants exploit breaches in the fence to reach the United States.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayoras and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin were to present to the Commander in Chief a plan on how to proceed with the construction of former President Donald Trump’s border wall on March 21, in accordance with Biden’s presidential declaration.
The decree, signed on the day of the inauguration, imposed a two-month suspension on military construction on the former president’s wall while Mayuras and Austin reviewed the project.
The White House did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment on whether the two had made a final recommendation to the president, or whether the administration plans to restart building the wall with military funding.
Military spending differs from the spending approved by Congress, of which a portion still goes toward building the border wall.
As the country awaits the White House’s decision, thousands of tons of steel and heavy equipment remain idle and groups of immigrants roam through these sites.
The Biden administration rolled back Trump’s border policies Paid a flood Illegal immigrants from Central America and Mexico at the border of the United States, Including thousands of unaccompanied children.
Central America seeking refuge from the countries of the Northern Triangle – El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala – took these political moves, along with the most welcome tone from the Democrats, as a sign that this president is inviting them to cross the border.
However, data overwhelmingly shows that immigrants were flocking to the border because they believed Biden would. We welcome them with open arms.
Late last month, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador He blamed the new president For the crisis, under the pretext of “expectations” that he set Migrants are left with a perception That they will be allowed to enter the United States.
Expectations have arisen that with President Biden’s government there will be better treatment of immigrants. This has caused immigrants from Central America, as well as from our country, to want to cross the border thinking it is easier to do so.
