house Bill H.R. 3968

Should the DHS Secretary Waive Environmental Reviews & Permits for CBP Agents to Destroy Illegal Border Tunnels?

Argument in favor

Trafficking across the U.S.-Mexico border through tunnels is a major problem, with drugs, people, and guns entering the U.S. illegally on a daily basis. Allowing CBP to destroy these tunnels more quickly will help keep the U.S. safer and help cut off drug inflows into the country.

There is absolutely NO valid reason to justify the delay and expense of an environmental impact assessment. Zero tunnel destruction has been delayed. This is bureaucratic BS. Get on with it!

Given that no studies were conducted to construct the tunnels in the first place, restoring the grounds back to pre-tunnel standards seems to be the best course of action for the environment and securing the border.

Destroy the tunnels!!! There was no impact studies to build the tunnels!!! Would be fixing a problem for the environmentalist without them realizing it!

Argument opposed

CBP agents are already destroying border tunnels as quickly as possible, and it’s unnecessary to eliminate important safeguards that ensure this process is done with the local environment in mind. It’d be more useful to approve new technologies that’ll help CBP destroy tunnels more efficiently.

Apparently the GOP is not satisfied with all the environmental damage they’ve already caused. Do not give CBP free reign. Oversight is needed.

It isn’t the tunnels- it’s the exits from the tunnels which should be easy to seal, while awaiting proper permits to assure that destroying the tunnels do not harm property owners or god-forbid, undermine the structural integrity of ... ... The WALL. This legislation is yet another attempt to sponsor useless legislation for election year ‘creds’.

Government should be efficient enough to obtain proper review prior to implementing plans. We need to ensure government works well and efficiently, not ignore the fact they can’t and use that as an excuse to give them free reign to take potentially improper action all because they can’t get their sh*t together!
