Senator Blasts Biden For Paying Billions to “Babysit Metal” at Border
One of Joe Biden’s first orders of business, after he was illegitimately sworn into office in January, was to put a screeching halt to the construction of the border wall.
This has led to over one million people illegally crossing just this year already because they know they can get a free ride thanks to the Biden regime and the Democrats’ soft response to breaking the law as long as you like them and vote for them.
The wall at the Southern border is incomplete and there are just areas with gaping holes and tons of metal just laying around waiting to be built with.
Senator James Lankford put Biden on blast for the massive number of immigrants that are pouring into the US, mentioning that there were 180,000 in June alone.
He pointed out that Biden is paying around $3 million PER DAY to stand around and do nothing. These professional construction contractors are still being paid this money that was allocated to them to not build the wall.
It is absolutely absurd that Americans are paying contractors to guard metal gates that President Biden refuses to install because he wants to “study” the wall. Stubbornly refusing to spend money approved for the wall is not “executing” the law. It’s ignoring the law and ignoring the very real national security concerns posed by illegal entry across our very open southern border. For years I have called out federal waste, but the Biden Administration is literally “going for broke” with this nonsense.
Our border patrol agents are doing their best to secure our border, but they need additional barriers, roads, and technology to help keep us safe. Instead, President Biden is paying professional construction contractors to babysit metal to the tune of $2 billion and counting, while at the same time we’ve seen a 20-year high number of migrants crossing our open border.
