The Biden Administration Is Spending Millions Of Dollars A Day To Halt Border Wall Construction
So, as it turns out, stopping the construction of the border wall is costing American taxpayers $6 million per day while all the equipment and everything down at the border sits there doing nothing.
Gee, so good to know that the president and his administration are managing our tax dollars so well, right?
President Biden’s 60-day pause on border construction contracts didn’t stop federal money from flowing to the border wall, a senior Department of Homeland Security official told Breitbart. Contractors are instead paid for rental expenses or cost of ownership while their equipment sits idle, costing the government $6 million per day as a deadline looms for the Biden administration to decide which projects will continue.
The number of unaccompanied minors detained at the border has also ballooned, causing the administration to open up new facilities as permanent facilities face crowding issues exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Authorities now have more than 14,000 unaccompanied minors in custody, some of which have been in crowded conditions for more than the 72 hours allowable by law.
The wall, a key promise of former President Donald Trump, remains unpopular with many Democrats. Biden has made good on his promise to reverse much of Trump’s immigration enforcement legacy, but the crisis already threatens to engulf his administration as it attempts to ramp up his first 100 days agenda.
Biden isn’t doing anything to solve the crisis at the border because the radical left wants this crisis. They want illegal immigrants to flood into the country. It’s part of a strategy to get new blood into the Democratic Party. More voters who will be loyal to them no matter what, feeling indebted to them for allowing them not only to cross the border illegally, but to receive free food, housing, and health care.
It’s sickening to see Democrats use people as pawns, isn’t it?
