Also, in order to continue building Trump’s Wall, Biden waived these two laws among the 26: the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act . Biden took his cruel action without seeking any input from local communities. His Department of Homeland Security is FAST-TRACKING the border wall construction and VIOLATING TREATIES. Biden’s wall will go through a Tribe’s sacred places and burial grounds.
To build Trump’s Wall, Biden also is waiving the Clean Air Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act and the Endangered Species Act.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) denounced Biden’s decision as “a cruel policy” and asked him to reverse his decision.

Here is another article from October 6, 2023, about AOC’s criticism of Biden’s Wall: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez scolds President Biden for allowing construction of border wall Despite telling reporters that a wall was not the answer to the border crisis, Biden and his administration are waiving dozens of federal laws to add about 20 miles of wall in Starr County, Texas, part of the Rio Grande Valley Sector that has recorded 245,000 illegal crossings this year. “A wall does nothing to deter people who are fleeing poverty and violence from coming to the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Walls only serve to push migrants into more remote areas, increasing their chances of death. It is a cruel policy.”
