JOE Biden may start building the US-Mexico border wall against after the president faces a backlash for the significant migration crisis.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reportedly told Immigration and Customs Enformcement employees that Biden planned to "plug" gaps in Donald Trump's touted frontier.
According to the Washington Examiner, during an US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) session, Mayorkas revealed Biden canceled the border emergency, as well as halting the stopped Pentagon funding.
He supposedly said this allowed wiggle "to make decisions" and continue filling in the gaps and that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) had put forth a plan of action.
Mayorkas is quoted as saying: "It’s not a single answer to a single question. There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented and the acting commissioner of CBP presented to me.
“The president has communicated quite clearly his decision that the emergency that triggered the devotion of DOD funds to the construction of the border wall is ended.
"But that leaves room to make decisions as the administration, as part of the administration, in particular areas of the wall that need renovation, particular projects that need to be finished."
Mayorkas supposedly cited these “gaps,” “gates,” and areas “where the wall has been completed but the technology has not been implemented.”
The Sun contacted the White House, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for comment on Tuesday.
We received no response at the time of publication.
Earlier today, The Sun exclusively obtained disturbing footage and video showing the tearful children wading through the Rio Grande in a desperate effort to enter the United States in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
In the heartwrenching images, Texas Rangers could be seen helping asylum seekers ashore and leading them to safety a day after two Yemenis men on the FBI's Terror Watch List were booked for illegally entering the country.
After the troubling images surfaced, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted Biden's border policies during a lively appearance on Fox & Friends.
Speaking to Fox & Friends, DeSantis raged: "This is a Biden-caused disaster and because he rejected the policies that president Trump had put in that were working, you now have this serious situation at the border.
"Absolutely it makes our country more vulnerable to that type of infiltration [like the two terrorists arrested] but it's more than just that: they basically stopped enforcing immigration law.
"So in Florida, we had agreements with ICE that if someone was a convicted criminal here illegally, ICE would pick 'em up when they were done with their prison sentence and return them to their home country."
However, DeSantis claimed Biden will not deal with these "convicted criminal aliens," who are being released "in communities across the country."
