After moving into the White House, one of Joe Biden’s first acts was to halt border wall construction.
This was idiotic considering the project had already been paid for.
The idiocy level increases significantly when you realize massive holes were left in the fence where old fencing had been taken down and new fencing was about to be put up.
So, the Border Patrol has decided to take matters into its own hands.
We Got This
When Joe Biden halted the project, there was a 20-foot gap in one area of fencing that saw significant traffic from illegal border crossings.
The big gap was giving illegals unfettered access to the border, so agents plugged the hole in the wall on their own.
They used just about anything they could find to construct a make-shift section of fencing that was comprised of stray fencing, old truck tires, and other materials that were left behind by the construction crews.
Border Patrol Agent Richard Barragan stated, “We have some agents who are good welders, and they put it all together.”
The fencing area now looks more like a child’s fort than a border wall built by what is supposed to be the most powerful country in the world, but it does seem to be serving its purpose.
It is obviously not as effective as the completed section of border wall, but at least it is hampering illegals from just rushing across the border.
So far this year, in the El Paso sector, agents have apprehended 155,892 illegals.
In all of fiscal year 2020 (which ends on September 30), there were only 54,396 illegals apprehended.
If they have apprehended that many, imagine how many more have slipped through the cracks.
Digest that and ask Biden to explain those numbers next time he says his plan is working for Americans.
