Oh, wow how have things changed under the Biden administration.
After pledging to stop the building of the wall during his campaign snores, I mean speeches Biden did, but now he is changing his tune.
The debacle at the border has Biden or his handlers second-guessing the halting of construction of Trump’s glorious wall and actually firing it up again. Will, someone give Biden a MAGA hat to wear now?
In January, Biden said there wasn’t a border crisis and accused President Trump of making it up to gain the support of white nationalists. Building the wall, according to Joe, was not a “serious” policy solution.
In honor of throwback Thursday, here is what was on the White House website said just a few months ago:
Like every nation, the United States has a right and a duty to secure its borders and protect its people against threats. But building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border is not a serious policy solution. It is a waste of money that diverts attention from genuine threats to our homeland security.
My Administration is committed to ensuring that the United States has a comprehensive and humane immigration system that operates consistently with our Nation’s values.
In furtherance of that commitment, I have determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border in Proclamation 9844 of February 15, 2019 (Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Southern Border of the United States), was unwarranted.
It shall be the policy of my Administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall.
Well, let’s fast forward to May now shall we?:
BREAKING: .@FoxNews has confirmed via the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that construction on a 13.4 mile stretch of border wall in the Rio Grande Valley will *RESUME* after pressure from local residents & politicians.
The Biden admin previously halted all wall construction in Jan.

Man, January Joseph Biden would be so ashamed of May Joe Biden.
In predictable fashion, the woke Twitter came out to try and defend their sleepy messiah’s actions.
Not building, repairing damage

Um, isn’t that what Trump was doing?
Government agencies and contractors even pitched in with some creative wording, swapping out wall building for words like “infrastructure repair.”
In support of CBP’s border infrastructure program, USACE has resumed DHS-funded design & construction support on approx. 13.4 miles of levee in the Rio Grande Valley that were partially excavated or at various levels of construction when work on the wall was paused for review.

These excuses and misdirects try to hide the truth. The southern border is in crisis.
Since his January 20 inauguration, the migrant surge has worsened, as the number of illegal crossings continues to skyrocket and holding facilities have threatened public health in the midst of a pandemic.
According to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), there were a total of 178,622 migrant encounters in April 2021, marking the highest monthly total in 20 years.
The ramifications of Joe’s poor leadership will be left on the backs of every man, woman, and child that is trafficked, exploited, and lost along the journey through a broken immigration system.
President Trump tried to fix things for all Americans, present and future. He knew securing the border was the first step to healing the immigration system. The left wouldn’t have it.
It will be interesting to see how history will continue to vindicate #45.
