This administration is now committed to leaving the large majority of our border unprotected by a barrier.
On Friday, the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas announced that all border wall contracts have been terminated.
Amid a massive surge at the border, it would only make common sense to offer any and all help possible to our border agents.
Well, that would be if you actually wanted to curb the flow of migration at the border, something Mayorkas and Joe Biden clearly have no intention of doing.
So, instead of allowing contractors to continue to place already paid for border wall, the administration announced all the contracts have been canceled…
Consistent with the DHS border barrier plan, @CBP, in coordination with the @USACEHQ, intends to cancel the remaining border barrier contracts located within the Laredo Sector and all border barrier contracts located in the Rio Grande Valley Sector. https://t.co/ZkI0vYnmWn

Mayorkas would also like Congress to cancel any funding that is currently earmarked for border wall construction.
The statement read, “The Administration continues to call on Congress to cancel remaining border wall funding and instead fund smarter border security measures, like border technology and modernization of land ports of entry, that are proven to be more effective at improving safety and security at the border.
“Until and unless Congress cancels those funds, the law requires DHS to use the funds consistent with their appropriated purpose, and beginning environmental planning activities is part of the Department’s plan to do so.”
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) immediately called for the impeachment of Mayorkas…

All I can say is if Democrats lose control of the House and Senate in 2022, there will be a true house cleaning of this administration.
