DHS To Expedite Replacement of 12.5 Miles of Border Fence In San Diego County

Breaking 911:

WASHINGTON – (DHS, News Release) — The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a waiver to ensure the expeditious construction and replacement of approximately 12.5 miles of secondary wall near the international border in the state of California. The waiver was published in the Federal Register on February 7, 2019.

 

This waiver is pursuant to authority granted to the Secretary of Homeland Security by Congress. Congress has provided the Secretary of Homeland Security with a number of authorities necessary to carry out DHS’s border security mission. One of these authorities is found in section 102 of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, as amended (“IIRIRA”). Section 102(a) of IIRIRA provides that the Secretary of Homeland Security shall take such actions as may be necessary to install additional physical walls and roads near the United States border to deter illegal crossings in areas of high illegal entry into the United States. In section 102(b) of IIRIRA, Congress has called for the installation of additional fencing, walls, roads, lighting, cameras, and sensors on the southwest border. Finally, in section 102(c) of IIRIRA, Congress granted to the Secretary of Homeland Security the authority to waive all legal requirements that the Secretary, in Secretary’s sole discretion, determines necessary to ensure the expeditious construction of the walls and roads authorized by section 102 of IIRIRA.

  1. This level of rigor is akin to my having to justify why it is legal for me to drive to work. And then to rejustify it tomorrow, and the day after. There is plenty of authority to repair or improve existing structures and to build new ones in areas authorized years ago by Congress.

  2. After reading the above legal citations, it is apparent to me that an emergency is not necessary to be declared. It is just business as usual. Build the damn thing.

  3. This is why government can’t get a fucking thing done; YOU HAVE TO CLEAR IT WITH THE LAWYERS, CLEAR IT WITH THE BUREAUCRACY, THEN YOU HAVE TO EXPEDITE THE JOB, GATHER MATERIALS, SIGN CONTRACTORS AND PROCURE EQUIPMENT. BY THE FUCKING TIME THE FIRST GRAIN OF SAND IS MOVED, YOU HAVE TO GO BACK AND APPROPRIATE MORE MONEY AND THE SHIT STARTS ALL OVER AGAIN. And so on & on till after 40 million per fucking mile, it turns into a damn welfare program for the bureaucracy.

  4. I think the Invaders probably knocked that wall down with a herd of drugged up burros. Most likely one of them, wiser than the rest, read about Hannibal using elephants to invade Rome, and, there being no elephants in Mexico, came up with an alternative.
