Both Republican lawmakers and President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team believed that they had found a way to begin moving forward immediately with Trump’s proposed border wall.
Reported by Conservative Tribune:
They planned to take advantage of a 2006 law signed by former President George W. Bush that pre-authorized the government to add 700+ miles more of fencing along the southern border.
“The law was never fully implemented and did not include a sunset provision, allowing Trump to pick up where Bush left off — with the help of new money from Congress,” Politico noted.
Critics have noted, however, that building a fence would technically amount to a violation of the president-elect campaign promise to construct a sturdy wall. But according to the Chicago Tribune, the 2006 law described layers of “reinforcing fencing,” which some might argue would be equivalent to a so-called wall.
