    The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled for the Trump administration Monday in a case challenging its use of waivers to bypass environmental regulations in constructing parts of the border wall.

    The state of California and several environmental groups sued President Donald Trump and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in September 2017 to stop construction of a border wall prototype and ongoing repairs to 14 miles of an existing barrier in San Diego. (RELATED: DHS Sued For Not Assessing The Environmental Cost Of Mass Immigration)

    “Under the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA), the Secretary of the DHS has long had the authority ‘to install additional physical barriers and roads … in the vicinity of the United States border,'” the 9th Circuit’s opinion states, quoting the IIRIRA.

    The IIRIRA grants the secretary of the DHS “the authority to waive all legal requirements” as is “‘necessary to ensure expeditious construction’ of those barriers and roads,” according to the 9th Circuit.

    California and those lefty environmental groups can go pound sand.

    The wall is coming, and soon.

    Dems won't be able to stop it.

    Oh yay, the wall prototypes that failed basic breach tests.

    I am so glad we are pushing for billions of taxpayer funds to be spent on something that can be taken out with a dollar saw from Home Depot.

    Lol at the image.

    Clearly the environment must take a back seat to border security within reason.

    If they're making a border consisting of a 20m moat of liquid mercury then that's one thing, but a concrete/steel barrier? Clearly proportional.

    We shouldn't need to praise justices for doing their job.

    Somedays, you sound like a downright reasonable aussie.

    Aussies were lions in ww1, ww2, and vietnam. Prove me wrong.

    Even a broken clock is correct twice a day.

    This was one of those moments for the 9th.

    No intention of proving you wrong, like many Western nations we have a proud history but bleak future.

    China has Mongols on the other side.
    Sort of like Asiatic Mexicans.

    Petty insults aside, what did I post that was inaccurate?

    https://archpaper.com/2019/01/border-wall-prototypes-breached/
    On “Pogo Row”, a testing area near the California-Mexico border, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents were instructed to try to breach the eight border wall segments—and eventually broke through all eight. Using saws and other hand tools, teams were able to cause holes “larger than 12-inches in diameter or square,” the DHS standard definition of breaching.

    According to a redacted version of the CBP report obtained through a freedom of information request from the San Diego-based KPBS, replicas of each prototype’s first ten feet were tested for breaching. One (redacted) technique proved so destructive during the first test that further experimenting was postponed, as officials feared it would destabilize the structural integrity of the other models before they could be thoroughly assessed.

    Most of these people do not wander over on their own, it is done by cartels or smugglers bringing groups over.

    You should beat your head into the wall harder — might knock some common sense in.

    Most? Not all? Good, let’s start with stopping these who will buy a saw and have at it on their own.

    Be a good start.

    Yes, let’s build a multi billion dollar partial wall that will be easily walked around or sawed through to stop an extremely small portion that walk hundreds of miles but don’t come prepared for the last step.

    Bang that head some more, didn’t seem to work

    Like I said, tis be a good start.

    By the way, why are you all of a sudden worry so much about money? Fiscally responsible Democrat is an oxymoron - government can simply print some more money when needed, as your new champion seem to believe... :mrgreen:

    I’m not a Democrat and I am more fiscally responsible than 90% of the “conservatives” here. Regardless of who is in office.
