Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “‘Worse than it has ever been’: Biden’s border wall gaps heighten dangers, scare off feds”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Biden’s decision to halt border wall construction has left parts of Arizona so dangerous that the U.S. Forest Service has banned its employees from going there, according to a border rancher who grazes cattle on those lands.

Jim Chilton, whose ranch covers 5.5 miles of the border, was thrilled when the government began replacing the four-strand barbed wire fence with a Trump-style border wall. Five miles were completed by the end of the last administration. But after Mr. Biden’s construction halt, Mr. Chilton now has a half-mile gap, and people are pouring through like a funnel.

“Actually, the border danger is far worse than it has ever been,” Mr. Chilton told The Washington Times in an email. “The border wall got partway across our ranch but left about a half-mile-wide door for cartel operations right up our southern pastures. Mainly drug packers cross our ranch.”
