Rep Andy Biggs op-ed: The Simple, Constitutional Way for President Trump to Build a Border Wall Right Now

Since the government reopened, the Democrats have sent unmistakably clear signals that they have absolutely no interest in building a border wall, fence, barrier, or anything else. President Trump is left with virtually no option other than to immediately use his authority under Title 10 of the United States Code. I urge him to declare that our unfenced areas of the southern border are active drug trafficking corridors, which will allow him to use available funds to build walls, fences, roads, lights, detention facilities, and other necessary infrastructure.
The president is right when he says, “A nation without borders is no nation at all.” There are many, including the professional agents on our border who agree with, and support, the president’s efforts to build a border wall.
Further, we must eliminate the incentives for people to illegally come and stay in our great country. Any amnesty given to people who are illegally in this country, including the DACA population, is an incentive to come and stay illegally in this country.
Continuing President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive order that prevents deportation of people illegally in this country, including DACA, is amnesty. Therefore, we should not trade amnesty, including DACA, for a border wall.
