A federal border agency has been given permission to bypass environmental laws to build 18 miles of new wall on the U.S.-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas.
The Department of Homeland Security announced in the Federal Register Thursday it has given U.S. Customs and Border Protection permission to ignore environmental and land regulations so it can speed up the process of building miles of new barrier in Hidalgo County.
The article goes on to state the following:
CBP will move forward on six projects in the southern border’s busiest of its nine U.S. Border Patrol sectors, according to details outlined in the announcement. The largest portion of wall construction is eight miles long and will stretch from near Goodwin and Abraham Roads east to near the International Boundary Water Commission levee.
The announcement comes a day after DHS said Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen waived regulations for two miles of other border projects in the Rio Grande Valley’s Cameron County.
DHS has issued a waiver “to waive certain laws to ensure the expeditious construction of barriers and roads near the international border in the state of Texas, in the county of Hidalgo.” The waiver was published in the Federal Register today.
