Report: Biden is spending millions of taxpayer dollars to halt Trump’s border wall

Since taking office, President Joe Biden has taken a series of steps deliberately designed to reverse his predecessor’s achievements on border security as well as in the fight against illegal immigration.

According to Breitbart, the Biden administration’s decision to halt construction of the southern border wall initiated by former President Donald Trump is costing taxpayers roughly $6 million each day, even as a massive surge of migrants is developing into a full-blown humanitarian crisis.

Within his first week in the Oval Office, Biden issued 17 executive orders – six of which were immigration-related – including one that ordered construction on the border wall to be paused for a period of 60 days, as the Associated Press reported. The point of the pause, according to the AP, was to allow time for officials to assess how much it would cost to void existing contracts and whether funds already appropriated for construction could be used in other ways.

A senior official from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told Breitbart that the $6 million in daily costs currently being accumulated are the result of orders for materials that were placed prior to the pause as well as the expense involved in compensating contractors for the costs of equipment that is sitting idle.

While the temporary halt on construction was due to expire on March 21, it remains unclear what will happen next, and a restart of construction is far from certain. Officials from the Biden administration have yet to reveal next steps, and according to Breitbart, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers did not respond to inquiries on the matter.

For their part, a contingent of Republican Senators last week alleged that Biden violated federal spending laws when he stopped funding for and construction of the border wall and linked that decision to the recent rise in illegal crossings that is overwhelming resources at the local, state, and federal levels, according to Roll Call. The lawmakers also requested a legal opinion from the U.S. Government Accountability Office on the issue.

This all comes as DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas projected that the ongoing influx of migrants at the southern border will break a 20-year record, and child advocates who have interviewed current detainees have reported severely deteriorating conditions in which youth are hungry, have only limited opportunities to shower, and are having to take turns sleeping on floors.

For his part, former President Donald Trump on Sunday issued a statement on the escalating crisis, declaring:

We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history. All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot. Instead, in the span of just a few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster. They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast.

With the expiration of the construction pause now upon us, only time will tell whether Biden will double down on his campaign pledge to build “not another foot,” or he will moderate his stance in response to the undeniable crisis his policies have already produced.

    1. With all of the Attorneys, Law Professors, District Attorneys, Judges in this Country yet maybe only a fraction are trying to save our Constitution. Regardless of anyone’s Political leaning, the Law and our Rights being infringed upon which is totally against the Constitution.

  1. Take it out of House and Senate payroll and benefit funds. They don’t deserve to get a paycheck ever again. Stop wasting our tax dollars. We have the most stupid leaders in the world.

    1. Absolutely true! “You Truly can’t fix Stupid” every penny paid to house, senate, congress, Biden worthless cabinet, pay for Democrats continued screw ups. No taxpayer money in any degree should pay for this band of morons.

      1. Yeah but please make sure you report every dime you have made during the pandemic and file your taxes on time with a nice chunk of check attached since our tax dollars are spent so wisely!
        We are screwed people. We have a old, corrupt career politician with Alzheimers ruining the greatest country on the planet and signing any bill put in front of him.
        The absolute greatest fraud ever pulled off in the history of this country. God help us all!

        1. God helps those, who help themselves! I’m talking drastic measures here! We MUST stop this insanity by whichever way possible!! If I spelled it out, this message would be rejected!!! I am anti obozo joe, his master, the black obozo, the whole demonrat party, the rinos, antifa, blm and anyone who is against America in any way!!! Are we insane or are we ignorant!!

        2. “God help us all!”

          That would be nice, but “It” gave us free choice to ultimately define our sort of existence. No matter, some underhanded apostates came to be in charge of a section of the playing field and geared it to their self-serving, self-aggrandising ploys for power. The caveat exists that often the getting is not as satisfying as the wanting — so Sprach Mr. Spock {sic).

    2. And dumbest. Shameful that this country now has the most common incompetent and dumb leaders. They have no idea what’s going on or how to manage it. Someone PLEASE make the necessary changes to get our country back on track as it was under the Trump administration.

      1. They are breaking laws and ignoring the Constitution. They have no respect for the Constitution. What they are doing at the border is against the law. They are breaking all immigration laws. Biden is incompetent and everything he has done since inauguration will be overturned if I have anything to say about it. I am an officer of the court, and I am filing charges.

          1. If there Is anyone Filing charges or a Law Suit against these “Marxist Democrats” for crimes against the American People the Constitution, the Bill of Rights etc. Add “YOUR” name (mine) to IT !
            Better DO It Now !
            I’ll even throw in a $1000 Bill to back the suit to SAVE Our Country from these AMERICAN Hating TYRANTS ! ! !

        1. Go for it!! May the Lord bless all your efforts to destroy these Godless pieces of crap that are hell bent on destroying our democracy!

      2. Republicans have no back bone the election should never have been stolen. I will not donate anything to them until they do something about this mess

    3. Anthony Maanzo
      How about charging the DNC, for ALL the costs accumulating to the HALT like caring for the invaders. they invited them in let them PAY FOR IT. They have no right to tax me and use my tax dollars against our CONSTITUTION and LAWS, just to suit their PERSONAL AGENDA and HATE. They should be accused of TREASON by not PROTECTING OUR BORDER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    4. I agree with you. I said all during the election that if Biden won our country would never be recognizable again. It makes me sick

    1. LEAVE THE BORDER WALL UP!!!! AND JUST FINISH THE WALL!!! WE’VE GOT TOO MANY PEOPLE OVER HERE NOW!!!

    2. Yeh, well that would actually be money of the Chinese pockets…u do remember how much he got paid by the Chinese?? He got paid to do this country in for them!!

  2. Beijing biden is not just letting in wet backs but also the Mexican mafia that in slaves wet backs and Mexican children

    1. Yes, but ur forgetting about the Haitians & the Muslim’s that are coming in at that border as well!!

  3. Biden is also not protecting the elderly or compromised health individuals because they are allowing covid and other diseases that had been eradicated in America to be brought into our country unchecked. He is not a President he is a goon squad destroying America

  4. The E.O. has Expired The Texas federal district judge needs to Order construction to begin Immediately and at double the pace, States can join in if they choose, but Texas needs to be Secured NOW !

  5. This is sickening. The democrat party is Americas enemy. They are trying to destroy the American people. They are becoming one of the domestic terrorists of america. Everything they say or have done is illegal and they continue to lie about it all the time. They attacked Trump for 4 years with lies they and the media created or paid for. Like the infamous dossier. Paid for by Hillary and created by the left with McCain hand delivering it to the dems. McCain a HUGH RHINO AND LIAR.

  6. These costs should be taken out of all the Democrats salaries especially Joe Biden’s and Kamela Harris, plus Pelosi and Schumer. The border was under control with the building of the wall. Now Americans will be living in fear worrying about the new surge of Covid-19 with these illegals, plus the MS-13 gangs and everything else they bring with them. This will cost AMERICANS a lot.

  7. They create this narrative come on in
    come on now they all came
    now they don’t know what to do with them so Guess what they are worse off now then they were back in Mexico
    Great job Joe
    Come On Man

  8. It is Joe Biden’s rogue bravado that we see at work here………”and by-golley….the Ukrainians fired that prosecutor.” And too many others to list here. He is out to get rid of anything Trump. Which is anything that gives power to The American People. It is all about control….their control, and the worse is yet to come folks. What are WE going to do about it. We gonna wait for the next 4 years and watch all the gains that were made and watch Biden bring us to our knees…….??????????

  9. Biden is a big fool. He really needs to complete the border wall. Biden is the reason of all the trouble at the south area border.

  10. Single Mom Makes $89,844/Yr in Her Spare Time on The Computer Without Selling Anything. you can bring from $5000-$8000 of extra income every month. working at home for 4 hours a day, and earning could be even bigger.

    The potential with this is endless…>>>>>> http://www.cashapp3.com

  11. FINISH THE WALL!!!! It has been proven effective! We are paying for it anyway so let them finish the last part!!! Our government is acting like a communist regime, not allowing reporters to see what is happening at the border, threatening border officials to not speak to reporters! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Might I remind you Beijing Joe we STILL have free speech in this country! Get YOUR knee OFF our necks!!!

  12. Biden needs to be removed along with hiis Commie, destructive regime! They removed Nixon for less and slapped Gorre and Clinton so why not remove Biden for all.thr crimes he has committed! Despicable bunch!

  13. Finish the wall. It is obvious now that the wall is important. Hatred for anything Trump is killing America. Hope all you Biden supporters are happy. Do you love the $3.00 a gallon gas….in just two months. Will you have some of the border illegals as your neighbors? Why not?

  14. I feel the bill for the cost of shutting down the border wall should be given to Biden and the Democratic Party. The bill for taking care of all the illegal aliens should be given to the people that want them here. The average worker doesn’t want them in the US. They are hurting American workers pay checks. They work for way less.

  15. SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousand upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

    1. Sadly…you can’t say to much against our Government because they will retaliate against you. just like they closed down our entire Country for this pandemic, ….and kept it closed….and still continue to enforce restrictions and mask requirements, they are taking jobs away from trump supporters, plus its like you are automatically on a watchlist if you are a conservative. They are in a position to financially hurt you, if you protest to much, some people even get placed on a terrorist type watchlist. While I strongly agree with what you are saying, I can’t afford to draw attention to myself , I’m barely getting by now.

  16. Why, why is Biden spending money to stop the wall? I know he has to honor Trumps contracts but why not just let them finish it for the American people and not his hate. I’m at the point that Biden and Harris is not good for our country.

  17. I wish we still had the Border Wall. I’d rather see the money spent on it than giving it to them for motels or other countries. This is the U.S.. It cost some money but providing for Illegals does too.

  18. UNBELIEVABLE stupidity that we are paying for!
    What ARE we paying our elected officials for??
    —-They must somehow pay—maybe by not being reelected?
    It seems that the democrats are so jealous of former President Trump’s Many Successes they they are willing to ruin this Great Country by eliminating his MANY successes

    The swamp MUST be drained !
    they are too fat and happy

  19. BIDEN AND THE PUPPET MASTER ARE DUMMER THAN A BOX OF ROCKS THEY CARE NOT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OR AMERICA ITS ALL ABOUT GETTING BACK AT TRUMP AND REVERSING ALL THE GOOD HE HAS DONE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT

  20. I don’t know what it’s going to take yet, but we have got to get our country back! The evil, deep state, puppet president has to go!

  21. This administration reminds me of an immature grade-schooler who cannot mentally handle someone being so successful in building something that they not only stop a very smart successful achievement but then they want to tear it down just to spite the success of others even if it is to the determent of all of the other schoolmates. What a joke of a someone who should be uniting and not destroying just to artificially enhance to themselves, their own personal inabilities

  22. It’s over, the America I knew no longer exists and nothing short of a 2nd Civil War is going to bring her back. My War Cry is TO ARMS TO ARMS DEATH TO THE PEONS!

  23. Throw Biden and the test of the democlowns in prison for all the trouble they have caused which has all been don unconstitutionally and illegally

  24. That is child abuse and neglect throw the dems in prison because that’s the way they are treating those children

  25. Dementia jo and his hair sniffing, digit raping, pedophile bunch are just like all career politicians, they don’t know how to handle money, just taking money is all they know.

  26. Build wall with some state funds or ID clause in contract to continue to build wall.
    Can be done

  27. There is only one problem with ” … {Biden } has turned a national triumph into a national disaster.” President Trump forgot he was speaking to Dumb-Dumb-Dumb-O-Crats; they do not know the difference between success and disaster. The REPUBLICAN PARTY should do what they did to Pres Trump; get twenty or thirty REPUKES, and invite THE SAME BIG MOUTH DEMOCRAT DELEGATION WHO WENT DOWN THERE THE FIRST TIME, AND MAKE SOME POLITICAL HAY AT THE DUMBOCRATS EXPENSE. YES, YES, YES, crowding – NO, WAY OVER CROWDING , SLEEPING ON CEMENT FLOORS , NO BEDS , NO WATER. WHERE IS BIG MOUTH AOC, AND THE SQUAD ON THIS? WHERE IS HYPOCRITE FAKE NEWS ON THIS? WHERE IS: “THE VIEW,’ HOLLYWOOD , TALKING HEADS ? WHERE? WHERE ? WHERE? INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW , THEY OWN THIS .

  28. Biden has our National Guard sleeping on a cement garage floor while paying for the transportation and lodging (in a nice cozy motel) of illegal immigrants. Seems like one, at least one, of our Generals & Admirals would speak up. They’re like any other politician though. Lots of people didn’t know that until now.
