A media report has revealed that Biden administration officials welded border wall gates open near Lukeville, Arizona. The open gates allow migrants to freely walk through the border wall and into the Arizona desert.
US officials have welded open 114 massive gates along the Arizona border to allow water to flow freely during the annual monsoon season and for the migration of an endangered species of antelope, officials said.
But the move is also letting an average of 1,400 migrants from as far away as China casually walk into the country daily — with overwhelmed and outnumbered border agents practically helpless to stop them. Last month, more than 42,000 migrants crossed the US border in Arizona illegally through these 114 floodgates that federal officials welded open nearly two months ago. The state is now the busiest illegal crossing point into the US.
When the Post first reached out to CBP, the parent agency of the Border Patrol, they were directed to other federal agencies but follow ups from the Post revealed they were misdirecting. Border Patrol officials eventually admitted responsibility for the decision to weld open flood gates in sections of border wall near Lukeville, the New York Post reported.
