Remember when Joe Biden said it was raaaacist to build a fence on the border with Mexico. I guess that was before… you know, before he was actually in charge of anything.
Suddenly, but very quietly, Biden has approved the construction of new border fence segments in Yuma, Arizona.
Per Fox News:
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas authorized the new plan, which was started by the Trump administration, in an effort to “deploy modern, effective border measures” and improve “safety and security along the Southwest Border,” the agency said.
The project will be funded under Homeland Security’s 2021 budget, though it was initially planned to be funded by the Defense Department.
Yuma’s border sector remains an unsolved issue for the Biden administration as border patrol agents have already stopped migrants more than 160,000 times from January through June in the sector this year.
The figure is nearly quadruple the number of migrant stops from last year and the Yuma sector remains the busiest migrant sector in the state of Arizona.
So, why is Biden doing this?
It’s all politics. Biden is trying to help Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly of Arizona who is hoping to be re-elected to his seat. Kelly was elected to the Senate in a special election in 2020 and now wants to win a full term.
But his seat is vulnerable. So, Biden is very quietly trying to help Kelly out.
But note, this means that politics trumps raaaacism in Biden’s mind.
Meaning he is a total liar.Commentary
