    Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said this week that the dire conditions on the U.S.-Mexico border allows the administration the legal right to waive dozens of laws and regulations in order to rapidly build sections of border wall in areas of south Texas that are being overrun by illegal aliens.

    Mayorkas said in an announcement on the U.S. Federal Register that the situation makes it "necessary to waive certain laws, regulations, and other legal requirements" in order to ensure the expeditious construction of "physical barriers and roads in the vicinity of the border of the United States in order to prevent unlawful entries into the United States."

    Mayorkas was forced to highlight the administration's failures to secure the border and their open border policies in the announcement, noting that in August, nearly a quarter of a million illegal aliens were caught attempting to enter the U.S. - a number that does not include illegal aliens who evaded detection and escaped into the country.

    The announcement named multiple areas within the Border Patrol's Rio Grande Valley Sector that are areas of "high illegal entry" that the administration now has designated as "project areas."

    The administration said in the announcement that it was waiving 26 laws to start construction, including the National Environmental Policy Act; the Endangered Species Act; the Federal Water Pollution Control Act; the National Historic Preservation Act; the Migratory Bird Treaty Act; the Migratory Bird Conservation Act; the Clean Air Act; the Archeological Resources Protection Act; the Paleontological Resources Preservation Act; the Safe Drinking Water Act; the Noise Control Act; the Solid Waste Disposal Act; as amended by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act; the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act; the Archaeological and Historic Preservation Act; the Antiquities Act; the Historic Sites, Buildings, and Antiquities Act; the Farmland Protection Policy Act; the National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act; the National Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956; the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act; the National Trails System Act; the Administrative Procedure Act; the Eagle Protection Act; the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act; the American Indian Religious Freedom Act; and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act.

    The news comes as there remain hundreds of miles of unprotected areas along the U.S.-Mexico border following former President Donald Trump's time in office.


    Under the administration of former President Trump, 450 miles of border wall was built, though the majority of that was replacing old barriers. 85 miles of new border wall - 52 miles of new primary wall and 33 miles of new secondary wall - was built in areas that had no preexisting border barriers, according to a press release that the Trump campaign posted on X from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?
  Not sure
