Is anyone keeping track of the instances when Donald Trump was absolutely correct in his predictions about Joe Biden and the Democrats?
The list seems endless as the Biden regime continues to eat crow over their open border policies.
A massive humanitarian crisis is well underway on the US-Mexico border and the Biden administration is working overtime to try and hide the consequences of their policies. They’ve even agreed to resume Donald Trump’s border wall project!
The Biden administration will complete a portion of border wall construction in an area of Arizona that has become one of the most popular spots for illegal immigration at the southern border.
On Thursday, Sen. Mark Kelly (A DEMOCRAT!) announced that the Department of Homeland Security had agreed to fill in a gap that was left between Trump-era border wall projects after he pressured Joe Biden and the White House.
“For too long, the Morelos Dam area has been an operational challenge for Border Patrol agents to properly secure the border and keep our communities safe,” Kelly said in a statement.
The move is significant for Kelly, a first-term senator who faces a contentious reelection bid this November. He touted the win as having followed through on an immigration promise to his constituents.
Kelly first began lobbying the Biden administration in December 2021 to finish the slatted, 30-foot-tall border wall. Biden halted all construction projects in January 2021, leaving 350 miles of funded wall unfinished, including small gaps in long stretches of wall.
While the gaps have acted as funnels, forcing migrants to cross into the United States at certain places where they are more easily apprehended and cannot sneak in, the Yuma region has seen significant increases in illegal immigrant apprehensions since construction stopped 18 months ago. Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, illegal immigrant arrests were lower than 1,000 per month in the Yuma region of southwestern Arizona, according to Customs and Border Protection data.
Over the past 10 months, apprehensions by the Border Patrol have topped 20,000 every month, including more than 30,000 apprehensions in some months.
CBP does not disclose where in each region of the border apprehensions are made, but the closure of the Morelos Dam is expected to curtail illegal immigration into Yuma, which could prompt smugglers to push people across the border in other regions or states where no barrier is present.
Local officials, including Yuma Mayor Doug Nicholls and Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines, praised the move.
Meanwhile, Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as recently as last week publicly claimed the US-Mexico border was “secure.”
