President Joe Biden’s pro-migration deputies have already wasted roughly $2 billion of Pentagon funds rather than extend President Donald Trump’s border wall, says a new report by a GOP senator.
“It is absolutely absurd that Americans are paying contractors to guard [purchased] metal gates that President Biden refuses to install because he wants to ‘study’ the wall,” said Sen. James Lankford (R-OK), the main author of the report.
The July 21 report, titled “President Biden is Wasting Billions by Not Building the Border Wall,” says:
DOD [the Department of Defense] will spend – at a minimum – $1.837 to $2.087 billion to suspend and terminate border wall contracts. During the Trump Administration, DOD had obligated roughly $10 billion toward border wall construction projects. This means that the Biden Administration will have likely wasted 20 percent of the DOD funding that had been allocated toward border wall construction.
