(Worthy News) – President Joe Biden’s administration has spent roughly $2 billion to pay for military contractors tasked with guarding unused materials after the Democrat put a pause on construction of the border wall.
Biden’s cohort shelled out roughly $3 million per day to “guard steel, concrete, and other materials in the desert,” according to a report from the Senate’s Subcommittee on Government Operations and Border Management, of which Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford is the chairman. The $2 billion figure is roughly 20% of the $10 billion transferred to the Department of Defense by former President Donald Trump to build the border wall, a process that was halted by Biden on his first day in office.
“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,” Lankford said in a statement, adding that Biden is paying “not to build the border wall.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
