Analyzing The Strange DHS Press Release on Border Wall Expansion

Tuesday, December 18, 2018

In Homeland Security

It’s no secret that President Donald Trump is seeking additional funding from Congress to expand the existing border barrier between the United States and Mexico. As the possibility of a government shutdown looms with debate over border security funding ongoing, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a press release on Dec. 12 meant to explain why a border wall would be effective. However, the vaguely written document calls into question the true purpose of the press release and the confidence of the staff that allowed it to be published.
