Biden cancels border wall construction contractshttps://hotair.com/karen-townsend/2021/05/03/biden-cancels-border-wall-construction-contracts-n387303
Joe Biden signed an executive order during his first day in office that put a halt to new border wall construction. He froze the money for border wall construction projects and terminated Trump’s national emergency declaration on the southern border. Steps are being taken now to further move the process along.
The Department of Defense announced Friday that the Biden administration has canceled further construction of the wall on the southern border. The photo above shows a gap in the border wall system in McAllen, Texas left as it is because of Biden’s order in January. The funding that Trump moved from the military budget is being sent back to the Pentagon. Military construction projects will receive the money instead of the border wall. A spokesman for the Pentagon presented the announcement as a matter of supporting the military.
So, how many millions of $$ did putting the contracts on hold cost taxpayers, and how many more millions of dollars were taxpayers charged for cancelling the contracts?
