Trump Takes Massive Step Toward Constructing the Border Wall

Great news out of the Trump administration! The Washington Examiner reports that the President’s Department of Homeland Security has issued waivers that will speed up the construction of border wall prototypes.

The Examiner writes that the “DHS said it waived ‘certain laws, regulations and other legal requirements to ensure the expeditious construction of barriers’ at the international border near Calexico, California. According to DHS, the waiver dealt with environmental, natural resource and land management laws.”

All sorts of people continue to pshaw the idea of a border wall. Just yesterday, House Speaker Paul Ryan scoffed at the idea becoming a concrete reality anytime soon.

I have lost count of how many times the doubters have been proven wrong by President Trump, but you would think Ryan would at least keep his mouth shut.

“The department […] continues to take steps to immediately plan, design and construct a physical wall along the southern border, using appropriate materials and technology to most effectively achieve complete operational control of the southern border,” the Examiner states.

Thank you, Mr. President, for staying true to your word as well as pushing back against the Establishment do-nothings.
