During her comments at the border, Vice-President Harris acknowledged the fact that she’d been mostly absent from the border, despite the fact that she was tasked by President Biden to handle the problem. Harris blamed “infighting” between unspecified parties within the Biden Administration for the delay (read, she was blaming Mr. Biden and his team).
“Forget negotiating with Congress. It’s a dead-end. Just as he ordered the Pentagon to send the troops to the border, he could order the Defense Department to begin construction on the wall immediately. There’s nothing stopping him from doing so. It’s the only way the president will get the wall.”
The Trump Administration has promised to not only build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico, but that Mexico will pay for that wall. Yet, imposing a tariff would likely cause a global reaction against America and simply taxing remittances is insufficient. Therefore, in my newest article over at American Greatness, I advocate for increasing regulations of U.S. Liquefied Natural Gas exports into Mexico until they consent to pay for the wall.
