‘Worse than it has ever been’: Biden’s border wall gaps heighten dangers, scare off feds:
President Biden’s decision to halt border wall construction has left parts of Arizona so dangerous that the U.S. Forest Service has banned its employees from going there, according to a border rancher who grazes cattle on those lands.
Jim Chilton, whose ranch covers 5½ miles of the border, was thrilled when the government began replacing the four-strand barbed wire fence with a Trump-style border wall. Five miles were completed by the end of the last administration. But after Mr. Biden halted construction, Mr. Chilton now has a half-mile gap, and people are pouring through like a funnel.
“Actually, the border danger is far worse than it has ever been,” Mr. Chilton told The Washington Times in an email. “The border wall got partway across our ranch but left about a half-mile-wide door for cartel operations right up our southern pastures. Mainly drug packers cross our ranch.”
The Forest Service knows it’s worse. Mr. Chilton said in court documents that employees have been banned from making the rounds of the grazing lands near the border.
“I have attempted to make appointments for the U.S. Forest Service to send personnel out to conduct such monitoring, but these appointments have been canceled due to their reaction to the violent danger near the border where the wall is not complete,” Mr. Chilton said in his sworn statement.
The rancher maintains his own motion-activated cameras on his grazing land and said they have detected “a dramatic increase” in the number of people coming across since wall construction ended. --->READ MORE HERE
Video: $100 MILLION Border Wall Discarded In Field While Biden Still Pays Contractors To NOT Build It:
Hundreds of millions of dollars and counting corroding away on waste ground
Video has emerged of miles of discarded heavy duty steel fencing left to corrode in a field even though the Biden administration is still paying contractors who were brought in under Trump’s presidency to build a border wall.
The fencing, thought to be worth more than $100 million in taxpayer dollars, was captured on video by a drone in Pharr, Texas.
There are estimated to be 10,000 steel panels just sitting on waste ground, enough for hundreds of miles of wall.
