We are currently witnessing what is perhaps the worst southern border crisis in our country’s history and the Biden administration has stopped construction of the border wall.
Worse yet, the materials used to build the wall, which have already been paid for by taxpayers, now lie in a rusting field in Texas.
The Biden administration doesn’t care. They prove it by their inaction.
The New York Post reports:
$ 100 Million in Texas Rusting Border Wall Material: Report
More than $ 100 million in taxpayer-paid border wall materials was thrown away and will be wasted in Texas after President Biden halted construction of the barrier when he entered the White House in January and canceled contracts for its construction, according to a report.
A Fox News drone has captured footage of around 10,000 steel panels – enough to build 100 miles of wall – rusting in the sun in Pharr, Texas since January.
Only about 14 miles of the wall were built before former President Donald Trump stepped down.
“Remember, taxpayers have already paid for this,” reporter Bill Melugin told America’s Newsroom.
“It’s bought and paid for and nothing happens with it,” he added.
The news crew also filmed where the wall abruptly ends in La Joya, Texas, leaving an open space that illegal immigrants can easily walk through.
“Basically it’s unnecessary,” Melugin said. “We watch these migrants just go around it all the time. It doesn’t matter, and border officials here have to run left and right because runners are constantly passing. “

To live with @BillHemmer & @DanaPerino this morning, discussing the decision of Biden’s administrator to cancel the border wall contract. A federal source tells me that steel over 100 miles was purchased for the wall at RGV & Laredo, but only about 14 miles were completed before Biden stopped it. pic.twitter.com/pseT3kUo6A

It’s just mind-blowing. The solution to the border crisis is there. Everything paid off. And Biden won’t use it.
