The end-of-year spending package rammed through the Senate on Monday delegates $1.375 billion for construction of new border wall on the southern border. Democrats ultimately accepted a spending package that included the wall funds, knocking down a Republican attempt to secure $2 billion in wall funding in the omnibus.
The wall funding will ensure that total walling in the neighborhood of up to 600 miles will be constructed in near future. President Donald Trump ran in 2016 on the promise of building a “big, beautiful” wall on the border, making the proposal his signature campaign issue. More than 400 miles of wall have already been completed, with over 450 miles scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
It’s sometimes emphasized that the construction of walling during Donald Trump’s presidency is only replacing existing fencing, but that doesn’t tell the full story. Previous obsolete fencing only secured heavily compromised areas of the border from vehicular traffic, whereas the new border wall is approximately 30 feet tall in many areas and inaccessible to pedestrian groups of illegal migrants.
(New border wall completed in 2020 near Yuma, Arizona.)
Joe Biden has promised open borders activists to halt wall construction as President, but the wall construction allocated in the 2020 omnibus would be legally mandated whether he likes it or not.
A senior Customs and Border Patrol official described a potential cancellation of border wall construction as “disastrous,” citing agreements already made with engineering and construction companies.
It’s likely that new walling will prove essential to border security in a Biden presidency, with new “caravans” of Central American and Mexican migrants already traveling to the border with the hopes of receiving amnesty from a Biden government. Illegal immigration levels are closely tied to perception of US policy in Mexico and Central America, with drug and human smuggling organizations already assuring potential border crossers that they won’t face repercussions for infiltrating the border.
Biden’s Open Border Policies are a Magnet for Incoming Central American Caravans
The mother of all caravans is coming
Some things are simply too predictable. According to Ben Wildon of SaraCarter.com, a new migrant caravan from Central America is quickly forming, and it’s heading northward to the U.S.
Incoming President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies have become a magnet for migrants who desire entering the U.S. illegally. They know very well that Biden will not drop the hammer when they illegally enter the country. Up to 9,000 migrants have apparently been making their way to the U.S. At least 1,000 of those migrants illegally entered Guatemala on January 15, 2021, according to a report by the Associated Press.
The pro-mass migration group Pueblo Sin Fronteras was ecstatic about the new caravan and urged the incoming Biden administration to welcome them with open arms in a statement that it released recently.
“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” the statement said.
In addition, the group stated, ”We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”
Additionally, the group called for immigration reform (amnesty) by scrapping laws that make migrants stay in Mexico as their asylum requests are processed.
“A new United States Government is an opportunity to work with the Mexican Government to develop a cooperation plan with Central America to address the causes of migration, together with civil society organizations, as well as an opportunity to increase regional cooperation regarding the persons in need of protection, and to dismantle illegal and inhuman programs such as Remain in Mexico, the United States’ Asylum Cooperation Agreements with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, as well as the Title 42 expulsions by the United States authorities,” Pueblo Sin Fronteras stated.
According to a Fox News report, Biden has vowed to provide citizenship to illegal aliens and do away with a number of Trump era policies such as the enforcement of the public charge rule, the temporary immigration moratorium during the Wuhan virus pandemic, and several restrictions to the H1-B visa system that kept legal immigration in check. Additionally, Bden wants to implement a moratorium on ICE deportations.
Curiously, Susan Rice, a Biden administration policy advisor revealed that the U.S. would not be fully opening the borders to migrants right off the bat.
“Processing capacity at the border is not like a light that you can just switch on and off,” Rice told the Spanish news site EFE. “Migrants and asylum seekers absolutely should not believe those in the region peddling the idea that the border will suddenly be fully open to process everyone on Day 1. It will not.”
These caravans will only grow larger as time goes by. The Biden administration’s weak border policies serve as a magnet for migrants. Border security is a pillar of any coherent political jurisdiction. Failure to secure a border, will inevitably lead to political chaos.
If Republicans are serious about getting back into power, they should unapologetically push for strong border policies, zero tolerance on illegal immigration, and a legal immigration moratorium.
