Biden’s $50 Million-per-Year Border Wall Bumbling REVEALED
Taxpayers should be VERY upset…
For a very long time the right side of the American political spectrum has been suggesting that Democrats are being a bit inept when it comes to securing the southern border.
This should come as no surprise, and many Democrats will gladly sign on to endorse that reputation. Heck, some even went as far as to suggest that border barriers themselves were “racist” – largely in an attempt to demonize eventual President and then-GOP 2016 nominee Donald Trump.
When Joe Biden took office, the left got back to what they do best: Ignoring the myriad of problems that a lax border security brings with it.
This now includes an ungodly burden on taxpayers, who are footing a gargantuan bill for the storage of unused border wall pieces.
While the border remains a total disaster, the Biden administration spends about $130,000 per day, nearly $50 million a year, to “do nothing” with former President Donald Trump’s unused border wall materials.
The administration pays private landowners to store 20,000 unused border wall sections at 20 project sites.
Other costs associated with storing the border wall materials included security cameras, electrical and stormwater materials, and overhead lights, Fox News reported.
Republican Senate Armed Forces Committee members sent a letter to assistant secretary of defense for homeland Defense and hemispheric affairs Melissa Dalton detailing the situation.
And they were not messing around.
“Every day, the Department of Defense pays $130,000 to store, maintain, and secure these materials,” the senators wrote.
“Since you were sworn in as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Hemispheric Affairs a year ago, you have allowed the Department to pay over $47 million to store these panels,” they said.
Dalton was asked why the Defense Department did not dispose of the unused materials.
The Defence department is required to remove such materials in coordination with the Defense Logistics Agency to reutilize, resell, or demilitarize military property.
We even detected a healthy bit of snark.
“We assume you are well aware of this capability since the Department used the program to transfer 1,700 border wall panels to the state of Texas early in your tenure,” the senators wrote.
While it has been said that the Biden administration hasn’t achieved much during their first 20 months in office, it does appear that Sleepy Joe will be one of the only Presidents in history to spend money not constructing critical infrastructure.
