Biden’s DHS Warns of Ecological Crises at Border Due to Trump’s Wall

'This work will not involve expanding the border barrier...'

Democrats in the Biden administration continue to live by Rahm Emanuel’s oft-invoked mantra, “You never want to let a serious crisis go to waste.”

That includes the current crises at the territorial demarcation between the US and Mexico—once known as the “border”—even though the current influx of illegal immigrants has yet to be designated as anything more than a conundrum.

Led by open-borders advocate Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas, the Department of Homeland Security announced it was rushing to address two ecological emergencies that now pose a national security threat.

According to a DHS press release, the prior administration created the hazards by attempting to install a controversial border wall.

“As DHS continues to review the extensive problems created by the prior administration’s border wall construction and develop its plans, the department will take the following initial steps consistent with the President [Biden]’s Proclamation to protect border communities,” it claimed.

The first emergency, DHS said, was to replace the large dirt barriers in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley that the Trump administration had cleared away during pre-construction.

“Construction under the prior administration blew large holes into the Rio Grande Valley’s flood barrier system to make way for a border wall,” DHS said. “The flood barrier system had long provided low-lying regions of Hidalgo County, Texas, protection from catastrophic flooding, and these breaches have threatened local communities.”

Meanwhile, in Hidalgo County, residents were more concerned about the flood of criminals than the flood of river water.

Hidalgo Sheriff J.E. Guerra, a Democrat, said the porous border had led to a massive problem with smugglers of both the drug and human variety.

“The previous convicted felons and the pedophiles and the people that have been convicted of sexual assault that have been deported, you’ll see those coming across in droves—and the cartels know that so they charge them a lot more money,” Guerra said in March.

Oftentimes, under the Biden administration’s policies, getting the dangerous illegals across requires kidnapping or indenturing otherwise vulnerable children in order to engineer what appears to be a family unit.

“As the sheriff, you know, the family units and the unaccompanied minors, it does not pose a security threat for me here,” Guerra said. “… The special interest aliens and the aliens that have been previously deported, that are felons… those are the ones that I’m more concerned about as the sheriff.”

Other families at the border also expressed alarm, not with the prospect of having their property claimed by the Rio Grande, but rather by the Biden administration.

Reynaldo Anzaldua Cavazos, whose land was taken under eminent domain, said he was “very, very disappointed in Joe Biden” for breaking a promise he had made.

“He said not one more foot of wall and no land forfeitures,” Cavazos said in April. “We took him at his word and we want him to keep his word.”

SAN DIEGO EROSION

With California being built on a large tectonic fault line, the San Andreas, residents of the deep-blue sanctuary state need all the dirt to remain fully intact.

Should an earthquake  suddenly rend it into its own separate land mass, erosion could become the worst enemy of wealthy billionaires whose precious coastline properties would then drift away with the tide.

 

Thus, the Biden administration made clear that it would not allow Trump’s border wall to take any more soil from the good people of San Diego than it already had.

“Improper compaction of soil and construction materials along a wall segment constructed by the prior administration is causing dangerous erosion along a 14-mile stretch in San Diego, California,” said the DHS press release.

The department said it would “begin necessary backfill projects to ensure the safety of nearby border communities.”

However, it was sure to note, “This work will not involve expanding the border barrier.”

Oddly, the recent announcement seems to mark a full 360-degree reversal for Mayorkas, who had previously made a 180 by suggesting that he did support finding ways to fill “gaps in the wall.”

The Washington Times reported that Mayorkas had even gone so far as submitting a plan on where the wall needed work.

“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 added.
