As the mainstream media continues its collective descent into the realm of gossip columnists, the federal government continues to take positive steps that are being woefully under-reported.
The Department of Homeland Security announced another step that it’s taking in the ongoing quest to secure our borders.
As much as California is against keeping illegals out, they will be thanking Trump for this move.
Construction will be expedited on roughly 15 miles of barriers that will stretch from from the Pacific Ocean to just one mile east of San Diego.
The Daily Wire passes along the scoop on that.
The Department said it would “waive certain laws, regulations and other legal requirements to ensure the expeditious construction of barriers and roads in the vicinity of the international border near San Diego.”
The waiver deals with border infrastructure projects in the United States Border Patrol’s San Diego Sector, where in fiscal year 2016, the United States Border Patrol apprehended more than 31,000 illegal aliens and seized 9,167 pounds of marijuana and 1,317 pounds of cocaine.
Placing those numbers further in perspective, that’s just what the border patrol was able to put a stop to. What do you suppose slipped through the cracks?
Thoughts of that are downright chilling, and this is an incredibly encouraging sign that things will be tightened up even further.
The Department called the area “an area of high illegal entry for which there is an immediate need to improve current infrastructure and construct additional border barriers and roads.”
The Department noted that it was “implementing President Trump’s Executive Order 13767, Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements, and continues to take steps to immediately plan, design and construct a physical wall along the southern border, using appropriate materials and technology to most effectively achieve complete operational control of the southern border.”
A border wall between the US and Mexico is long overdue, and the American voters selected a candidate with the vision to finally get it done.
President Donald Trump has made our national security a key priority of his administration, and this is just the latest sign that he’s a candidate that actually follows through on his promises.
Perhaps that’s part of the reason why the mainstream media has such a difficult time getting a grip on reality.
Business as usual in the nation’s capital is pretty easy to cover. Having someone come in and knock over the apple cart is not.
