Bill Signed By Obama Comes Back To BITE Democrats – Gives Trump Authority To Build WALL!

It would seem that Donald Trump may be pulling an Obama and skipping out on getting a bill through Congress to fulfill his promise to build that ‘big, beautiful wall’ on the southern border. Trump may be able to start construction on the project on day one as President and that is because Congress has already passed the bill needed that authorizes a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.


Do you all remember the Secure Fence Act that passed with bipartisan support in 2006 including “yea” votes from then Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama? It permits the Secretary of Homeland Security to “take all actions the secretary determines necessary and appropriate to achieve and maintain operational control over the entire international land and maritime borders of the United States.”

Now isn’t that just convenient? Thanks Obama and Hillary…Seriously, this time.


Washington Examiner’s Byron York explains the situation:

Specifically, the law called for the usual mix of high-tech sensors, cameras, border checkpoints, vehicle barriers and other measures along the U.S.-Mexico border. And then it ordered Homeland Security to “provide for [at]* least 2 layers of reinforced fencing” and “the installation of additional physical barriers” for hundreds of miles on the southern border. For example, it ordered double fencing for the area “10 miles west of the Calexico, California port of entry to 5 miles east of the Douglas, Arizona, port of entry” — a span that would cover nearly the entire Arizona-Mexico border. The law ordered heavy fencing in other border areas as well.

The law’s reference to “at least” a double-layer fence, plus its mention of “additional physical barriers,” suggests that Congress specified the minimum amount that Homeland Security should do — not the maximum.

This seems too smooth to be true. Too convenient at that. We are all aware of the do-nothing Congress who get fat on our tax money and yet do nothing but circumvent the peoples’ wishes. If this act can be taken when Trump takes office, well then there will be zero excuse NOT to secure the border.
