REPORT: Suspending Border Wall Construction Costing Taxpayers $2B (possibly more)

With materials already purchased and crews already hired, it would have made fiscal sense to finish the border wall project that had been financed.

That is not the way Joe Biden thinks, however.

Instead, he suspended the project, adding an estimated $2 billion to the cost, money that will be coming out of our pockets, not Joe’s.

Just Write the Check

There is no denying that we have a border problem.

Whether Dems like it or not, one of the most effective ways to get this somewhat under control was to allow Trump’s border wall to be completed.

Experts and border officials have stated many times that the numbers in the areas where the wall was finished had declined significantly.

However, now, there are gaping holes where the old fencing had been taken down, and immigrants are illegally entering the country in droves in those areas.

Instead of allowing the project to continue, Biden stopped everything dead in its tracks, canceling contracts to the tune of roughly $2 billion.

Oh, did we mention it costs taxpayers about $3 million every day to have the supplies sit there?

A Senate subcommittee report stated, “These interim findings show that the Biden administration’s efforts to stop border wall construction constitute significant waste of taxpayer resources.

“As of the drafting of this report the Biden administration has paid border wall contractors at least $2 billion and counting to not build the border wall.

“This $2 billion comes directly from DOD’s budget, and the Biden administration’s continued waste of these funds poses risks to national security and border security.”

In regard to the daily feels, the report further stated, “This means that the federal government is paying contractors on these seven projects $3 million per day to drive out to project sites and guard the unused pallets of steel and other construction materials.”

When Trump was in office, 450 miles of new wall had been built or put in place to replace the old fencing, with hundreds more miles of supplies bought and contracted to have built.

Sen. James Lankford (R-OK), who heads the subcommittee that conducted the report, stated, “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.”

Not only is Biden “going for broke,” but he is financially breaking this country.

  1. Well the Nation thought Nixon was a horrible Prez, well Nixon was nothing compared to the Prez we have now. He is being paid off by Soros, Obama, the Clintons and others that want this country down the tube so they can have full control of everyone. If people think this isn’t happening they are total fools. Communisum is horrible and why do they think we have tried for years to keep it out of our country. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    1. Íwell Jan,they took my message to you off this sight,i agree with you n if they must be here in the USA fly them to DEL.n see how the Biden’s like it.

      1. Why would you want to punish the people of Delaware? Very few Delaware residents ever see this loser of a president. He remains secluded so only his select few ever see him. He was never very open to the people of Delaware. He’s just another typical corrupt Democrat. Never honestly represented the people, just his personal or special interests.

    2. If any prez needed to be impeached, it is Biden and his cohort in crime, Harris.

  2. HOW LONG ARE AMERICANS GOING TO PUT UP WITH THIS EGREGIOUS FARCE??? WE CANNOT AFFORD THIS KIND OF WASTE ON ALL FRONTS!!!

    1. Do you want Kamala Devil Harris to replace him> Or maybe Swamp Queen Pelosi? The options available at the moment are disastrous. Harris is just as incompetent as Biden. Pelosi is worse. She would definitely be the first American dictator with a few short months if she were ever to slip in to the Oval Office. We’re stuck until the 2022 elections, IF Biden lasts that long.

  3. So it’s costing a couple million dollars a day for people to go and guard the metal for the wall Plus they’re not building the wall so now there’s people out of work again. There’s something definitely wrong with this man he’s not in my president he doesn’t belong in the White House he’s ruining everything we’ve had in this country

    1. HE’S NOT A PRESIDENT ..HE’S JUST YOUR EVERYDAY LYING CROOK AND SO IS THE REST OF THEM dEMONrATS!

  4. The first job of the Federal Government is to protect the country from attack from other countries or entities, the second job is to do no harm to US citizens by instituting incompetent policies.

    1. The third is to faithfully execute the laws of the land. He has failed miserably in doing so. I believe that is an impeachable offense.

    2. What do you expect from a mentally challenged, incompetent, and illegal president.

    3. Biden can be impeached, if the Republicans enact the ‘War Measure Act’ against him.
      With all the illegals he’s letting in, they are a threat to National Security!

  5. Biden is not above the law! He needs to be arrested now! If the right people do not arrest him, then let the military do it. They had always said that “Trump is not above the law.” and tried to impeach him over nothing he did wrong. Where are the people in charge who have some spine and to start the procedure to impeach Biden and then put him into Jail. Is that being unfair?

    1. Get ready,stay vigilant, keep your powder& ammo,weapon ready!
      Patriots,”lets Roll”
      MAGA 2020& Beyond!

  6. Impeach every demo in the federal gov and get things back to some sort of normalcy. Get the illegals out of our country, by any means at our disposal. The patriots have had it with this BS. The republicans need to get their at together and accomplish this. I thought Texas was going to start putting up their own wall?

    1. You forgot the Rhinos they Suck to and need to go, to bad none of the swampscum Got Coved, Well knee pad did right or she thought she had to do some work,, God Bless Us with This Set Of SCUM AND THIEVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY ALL NEED TO GO!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Agree with all posts! The “ bilker, thief in chief” doesn’t intend to protect our country! He wants to hand it over to any communist regime who wants it. So—- we the people need to demand impeachment, if Piglosi refuses to do it, remove her sorry old arse and get a REAL patriot put in her place! Jim Jordan would be the best choice.

  8. How do you get rid of ALL THE DEMOCRATS? THEY ARE A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

  9. Mine the border with anti-personnel mines, where possible on the Mexican side. Build the fence at least 12 feet inside your border and mine the other side. This will protect your livestock and any innocent wildlife. In SE Asia tigers would step on the mines.

  10. DEMENTIA JOE BIDEN does not give a damn about the CO)ST all he cares about is bringing in as many ILLEGALS as he can. BIDEN knows each and every ILLEGAL he brings in is another vote for him and his DEMOCRAT cabal !

  11. I think there is more than enough reasons to impeach Biden & considering all the money he has wasted, force him to pay for some of his ridiculous ideas such as the border wall – why should we have to make us pay for his awful plans? Biden has been a terrible president & I think it’s time that “We the People” make a decision concerning his very bad decisions regarding our country and our economy.

  12. With being warned what biden and his flunkies were going to do, biden was installed as president, in order to destroy America. bidens job creations are nothing but lies, if the right would ever grow any balls and impeach biden, harris and the rest of the democrats be put in prison but that’s not going to happen.

    1. same place that all of mine go. I do not use crude language nor do I castigate any one person, yet the CAPTCHA nazi will not print any of my posts.

  13. Look at all the above posts that get printed. Who decides what does and does not get printed? Mine have been much less vendictictive but still they get cancelled.

  14. Biden and Harris need to be Impeached.They have to be stopped before they do anymore damage to this Country.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

This past weekend, pro-life centers were attacked in Virginia, Oregon, and Colorado.

Democrat leaders told activists to “armor up” for “war,” and radicals listened.

Remember when Biden promised he would “transform” the economy? He inherited a robust recovery and now we are on the brink of recession.

Per a new CBS poll, 84% of Americans have been impacted by the #BidenGasHike and 90% by food prices.

71% disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation.
