Skip to comments.Biden wastes $2 billion paying contractors not to build the border wall

With a border surge now setting records, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have admonished illegal border crossers not to enter the U.S. "Do not come, do not come," as Harris said in Guatemala. Joe has said similar things.
Republicans have complained about the warnings not being sincere. Now, a Senate Republican report shows there's proof positive of it.
According to Fox News:
| A new report by Republicans on a Senate subcommittee has concluded that the Biden administration is spending a minimum of approximately $2 billion to suspend construction of the wall at the southern border, even amid a continuing migrant crisis. |
The report by the minority staff of the Government Operations and Border Management Subcommittee of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee found that efforts to suspend or terminate wall construction projects at the Defense Department have cost between $1.8 billion to $2 billion and the administration is spending $3 million every day.
"These interim findings show that the Biden administration’s efforts to stop border wall construction constitute significant waste of taxpayer resources," the report says. "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."
The report, by ranking member Sen. Jim Lankford, is here.

Seems like socialism is a recipe for disaster for anyone trying to manage money successfully, whether it’s their own or not.
States need to quit whining and do it themselves.
Pipeline? Build it and quit going to this federal scummerment to let it be done.
Boarder walls? Build it and quit going to the federal scummerment for funds to get it done.
The federal scummerment is corrupt. Quit allowing them to dictate you.
People need to know that. He wastes 2 billion not building the wall while illegals pour over..
States need to simply do what has to be done. The only leverage the Feds have is the threat of holding Fedgov money. The states that are addicted to Fedgov money like a drug are a lost cause.
Why would he care. It’s 2 billion of OUR MONEY. If it was his then the wall would be built.
Maintaining the con job.
None of these pro-illegal built their mansions on the border or in next to demcrat ghettos.
He should be arrested immediately, along with members of the cabal that control him.
The whole wall would have cost a mere $25 billion by most estimates, and coupled eith deporting illegals, would have saved our country over $600 billion per year every year.
The left screamed and hollored about the $25 billion cost, breathlessly saying that it was a col.osal waste of money, but it would have only been a 1 time cost (plus much less per year to maintain the wall), and would have saved us Hu dress of billions a year
Most Liberals are nothing but vindictive morons
Well, Biden’s supporters aren’t complaining because they’re not dumping the illegals in blue states or cities. Anyone who thinks this is magically going to correct itself, by the ballot box or in the courts, is delusional, maybe even stupid.
Agreed. Time for Texas to build the wall themselves. If they can't do it on the border because that's federal property, just build it on the state property.
While illegals pour over and are given 7pwards of $2400 per month, while,many of our legal citizen seniors, who paid into the system all their lives, get only about $1200, some even less.. there was a report that other day on here about illegals getting $2400 a month.
Other illegals soak our government to the tune of nearly $45,000 a year as they take every ‘freebi’ offered to them.
Our prisons in places are over 70% illegals, which cost $145 per day on Average, per inmate
Most Liberals are scum
Democrats spend money like they stole it. Oh, wait a minute...
So who truly controls the purse strings? Is it Congress or the President? Everyday it appears budgets passed on where money is to be allocated by Congress means nothing if a President can intervene and spend it how and where he wishes.
Benedict Biden: THAT’S HIS NAME!
Destroying America: THAT’S HIS GAME!!
Biden does not have the brainpower to be spiteful. He can barely choose between vanilla and chocolate pudding each afternoon. It's his nefarious HANDLERS who are the spiteful [i.e. infantile, not considering consequences of their tantrum] ones, and it is WE who are paying the horrific consequences. We are experiencing a plague of variants on COVID and vaccinations not protecting against them, yet the Anal Orifice in Chief is actually wasting TWO BILLION DOLLARS not completing the wall and doing everything he can to spread these completely unvetted filthy disease-spreading scum pouring over our borders, looking for a lifetime of freebies on OUR dime. Can't wait for his obit and that of Klamydia & Pelousy.
