ACTION: Notice of determination. AGENCY: The Secretary of Homeland Security has determined, pursuant to law, that it is necessary to waive certain laws, regulations, and other legal requirements in order to ensure the expeditious construction of barriers and roads in the vicinity of the international land border in Imperial County, California. DATES: This determination takes effect on May 15, 2019. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Important mission requirements of the Department of Homeland Security (‘‘DHS’’) include border security and the detection and prevention of illegal entry into the United States. Border security is critical to the nation’s national security. Recognizing the critical importance of border security, Congress has mandated DHS to achieve and maintain operational control of the international land border. Secure Fence Act of 2006, Public Law 109–367, 2, 120 Stat. 2638 (Oct. 26, 2006) (8 U.S.C. 1701 note). Congress defined ‘‘operational control’’ as the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband. Id. Consistent with that mandate from Congress, the President’s Executive Order on Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements directed executive departments and agencies to deploy all lawful means to secure the southern border. Executive Order 13767, § 1. In order to achieve that end, the President directed, among other things, that I take immediate steps to prevent all unlawful entries into the United States, including the immediate construction of physical infrastructure to prevent illegal entry. Executive Order 13767, § 4(a). Congress has provided to the Secretary of Homeland Security a number of authorities necessary to carry out DHS’s border security mission. One of those authorities is section 102 of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, as amended (‘‘IIRIRA’’). Public Law 104–208, Div. C, 110 Stat. 3009–546, 3009–554 (Sept. 30, 1996) (8 U.S.C 1103 SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 note), as amended by the REAL ID Act of 2005, Public Law 109–13, Div.

E, Title V, § 564, 121 Stat. 2090 (Dec. 26, 2007). In section 102(a) of IIRIRA, Congress provided that the Secretary of Homeland Security shall take such actions as may be necessary to install additional physical barriers and roads (including the removal of obstacles to detection of illegal entrants) in the vicinity of the United States border to deter illegal crossings in areas of high illegal entry into the United States. In section 102(b) of IIRIRA, Congress mandated the installation of additional fencing, barriers, roads, lighting, cameras, and sensors on the southwest border. Finally, in section 102(c) of IIRIRA, Congress granted to the Secretary of Homeland Security the authority to waive all legal requirements that I, in my sole discretion, determine necessary to ensure the expeditious construction of barriers and roads authorized by section 102 of IIRIRA. Determination and Waiver Section 1 The United States Border Patrol’s (Border Patrol) El Centro Sector is an area of high illegal entry. In fiscal year 2018, the Border Patrol apprehended over 29,000 illegal aliens attempting to enter the United States between border crossings in the El Centro Sector. Also in fiscal year 2018, the Border Patrol had approximately 200 separate drugrelated events between border crossings in the El Centro Sector, through which it seized over 620 pounds of marijuana, over 165 pounds of cocaine, over 56 pounds of heroin, and over 1,600 pounds of methamphetamine. Additionally, Imperial County, California, which is located in the El Centro Sector, has been identified as High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas by the Office of National Drug Control Policy. During the high levels of illegal entry of people and drugs within the El Centro Sector, I must use my authority under section 102 of IIRIRA to install additional physical barriers and roads in the El Centro Sector. Therefore, DHS will take immediate action to replace existing vehicle barriers in the El Centro Sector. The segment within which such construction will occur is referred to herein as the ‘‘project area’’ and is more E:\FR\FM\15MYN1.SGM 15MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 94 / Wednesday, May 15, 2019 / Notices jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES specifically described in Section 2 below. The existing vehicle barriers within the project area no longer satisfy the Border Patrol’s operational needs. Transnational criminal organizations known for smuggling drugs into United States from Mexico are known to operate in the area. Further, due to the close proximity of urban areas on both sides of the border, the El Centro Sector experiences some of the quickest vanishing times—that is, the time it takes to illegally cross into the United States and assimilate into local, legitimate traffic—on the border. The vanishing times facilitate the illegal activities of transnational criminal organizations, whether they are smuggling people or narcotics. Therefore, the Border Patrol requires a more effective barrier. The existing vehicle barriers will be replaced with an 18 to 30 foot barrier that employs a more operationally effective design. In addition, roads will be constructed or improved and lighting will be installed. To support DHS’s action under Section 102 of IIRIRA, DHS requested that the Department of Defense, pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 284(b)(7), assist by constructing fence, roads, and lighting within the El Centro Sector in order to block drug smuggling corridors across the international boundary between the United States and Mexico. The Acting Secretary of Defense has concluded that the support requested satisfies the statutory requirements of 10 U.S.C. 284(b)(7) and that the Department of Defense will provide such support in the project area described in Section 2 below. Section 2 I determine that the following area in the vicinity of the United States border, located in the State of California within the Border Patrol’s El Centro Sector, is an area of high illegal entry (the ‘‘project area’’): Starting at Border Monument 229 and extending east to approximately one and one-half miles (1.5) west of Border Monument 223. There is presently an acute and immediate need to construct physical barriers and roads in the vicinity of the border of the United States in order to prevent unlawful entries into the United States in the project area pursuant to sections 102(a) and 102(b) of IIRIRA. In order to ensure the expeditious construction of the barriers and roads in the project area, I have determined that it is necessary that I exercise the authority that is vested in me by section 102(c) of IIRIRA. Accordingly, pursuant to section 102(c) of IIRIRA, I hereby waive in their VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:43 May 14, 2019 Jkt 247001 entirety, with respect to the construction of physical barriers and roads (including, but not limited to, accessing the project area, creating and using staging areas, the conduct of earthwork, excavation, fill, and site preparation, and installation and upkeep of physical barriers, roads, supporting elements, drainage, erosion controls, safety features, lighting, cameras, and sensors) in the project area, all of the following statutes, including all federal, state, or other laws, regulations, and legal requirements of, deriving from, or related to the subject of, the following statutes, as amended: The National Environmental Policy Act (Pub.

Determination and Waiver

Section 1

    The United States Border Patrol's (Border Patrol) El Centro Sector 
is an area of high illegal entry. In fiscal year 2018, the Border 
Patrol apprehended over 29,000 illegal aliens attempting to enter the 
United States between border crossings in the El Centro Sector. Also in 
fiscal year 2018, the Border Patrol had approximately 200 separate 
drug-related events between border crossings in the El Centro Sector, 
through which it seized over 620 pounds of marijuana, over 165 pounds 
of cocaine, over 56 pounds of heroin, and over 1,600 pounds of 
methamphetamine. Additionally, Imperial County, California, which is 
located in the El Centro Sector, has been identified as High Intensity 
Drug Trafficking Areas by the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
    During the high levels of illegal entry of people and drugs within 
the El Centro Sector, I must use my authority under section 102 of 
IIRIRA to install additional physical barriers and roads in the El 
Centro Sector. Therefore, DHS will take immediate action to replace 
existing vehicle barriers in the El Centro Sector. The segment within 
which such construction will occur is referred to herein as the 
``project area'' and is more

[[Page 21801]]

specifically described in Section 2 below.
    The existing vehicle barriers within the project area no longer 
satisfy the Border Patrol's operational needs. Transnational criminal 
organizations known for smuggling drugs into United States from Mexico 
are known to operate in the area. Further, due to the close proximity 
of urban areas on both sides of the border, the El Centro Sector 
experiences some of the quickest vanishing times--that is, the time it 
takes to illegally cross into the United States and assimilate into 
local, legitimate traffic--on the border. The vanishing times 
facilitate the illegal activities of transnational criminal 
organizations, whether they are smuggling people or narcotics. 
Therefore, the Border Patrol requires a more effective barrier. The 
existing vehicle barriers will be replaced with an 18 to 30 foot 
barrier that employs a more operationally effective design. In 
addition, roads will be constructed or improved and lighting will be 
installed.
    To support DHS's action under Section 102 of IIRIRA, DHS requested 
that the Department of Defense, pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 284(b)(7), assist 
by constructing fence, roads, and lighting within the El Centro Sector 
in order to block drug smuggling corridors across the international 
boundary between the United States and Mexico. The Acting Secretary of 
Defense has concluded that the support requested satisfies the 
statutory requirements of 10 U.S.C. 284(b)(7) and that the Department 
of Defense will provide such support in the project area described in 
Section 2 below.

Section 2

    I determine that the following area in the vicinity of the United 
States border, located in the State of California within the Border 
Patrol's El Centro Sector, is an area of high illegal entry (the 
``project area''): Starting at Border Monument 229 and extending east 
to approximately one and one-half miles (1.5) west of Border Monument 
223.
    There is presently an acute and immediate need to construct 
physical barriers and roads in the vicinity of the border of the United 
States in order to prevent unlawful entries into the United States in 
the project area pursuant to sections 102(a) and 102(b) of IIRIRA. In 
order to ensure the expeditious construction of the barriers and roads 
in the project area, I have determined that it is necessary that I 
exercise the authority that is vested in me by section 102(c) of 
IIRIRA.
    Accordingly, pursuant to section 102(c) of IIRIRA, I hereby waive 
in their entirety, with respect to the construction of physical 
barriers and roads (including, but not limited to, accessing the 
project area, creating and using staging areas, the conduct of 
earthwork, excavation, fill, and site preparation, and installation and 
upkeep of physical barriers, roads, supporting elements, drainage, 
erosion controls, safety features, lighting, cameras, and sensors) in
