While construction equipment sits at the border, stalled for months, Biden is adding one more burden to the American worker.
In other words, while we’ve lost our jobs, and we’re stuck waiting for stimulus checks that we will ultimately bank roll, we’re passing out our goods and services to people who don’t even belong here.
And if our fence was finished, they wouldn’t be here. But let’s face facts. Biden won’t rest until he undoes every bit of amazing work Donald Trump did on our behalf. Unless of course he strokes out, which is entirely possible.
As Fox News points out:
Thousands of tons of steel and heavy equipment stand idle along the country’s southern border as legions of migrants exploit holes in the fence left by President Biden’s decision to halt construction.
Smugglers send groups of asylum seekers through the gaps to overwhelm the agents. When agents leave to intercept or apprehend one group, another group scampers across.
“It’s insane,” said an agent attending to a group of 13 Brazilian migrants apprehended Tuesday near a 100-foot gap in the fence in Otay Mesa, Ca. “The project is ¾ done. At least, they should be allowed to tie together the primary fence. Otherwise, we’re trying to catch these people in the worst possible place. It’s just sucking our manpower.”
But Biden isn’t promising any man power. In fact, not only do his policies create unemployment, but so do his direct actions.
Biden issued his stop work order days after entering office in January. He gave Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas 60 days to report back – either continue, modify or terminate the contracts. So far Mayorkas is a week past his deadline.
Meanwhile, the tab footed by taxpayers keeps running up. No work is getting done and experts say canceling those valid contracts – while legal – costs a million dollars a month and the government could end up paying more to cancel the contracts than complete them.
Isn’t that a smart move? Leftists are willing to spend more money to destroy us than it would take to protect us. Sounds like liberal logic to me.
The article adds:
“The contractor hasn’t stopped receiving money, even though they’re not working for two months. The contractors are being paid because they have resources, workers, equipment, materials that can’t be redeployed because they’re still on contract to build a project,” said Associated General Contractors of America’s Brian Turnmail.
“The government is paying contractors up to a million dollars a month to be on standby. That’s going to the total cost. So, if the government takes a long time to resolve the dispute, that will cost taxpayers more.”
President Trump built 455 miles of new border wall. President Biden has enough cash left – about $3 billion – to finish another 200 miles. According to the Army Corp of Engineers about 39 fence projects across the border stand idle. Biden voted to build 700 miles of border protection in 2006. Today he calls them useless, inhumane, and unnecessary.
Imagine that! Biden switched sides. That feeble old donkey doesn’t know whether to wind his ass or scratch his clock, but at one time, he understood the basic need for safety along the border.
Blame the Environment
You know what else leftists are good at? They love to use the environment as a crutch. Remember when Obama wasted billions on a 1% gain in green energy? Nothing’s changed. Liberals love buzz words like “carbon footprint” and “renewable energy.” But it’s nothing more than lip service.
In fact, just this week I bought one of my kids an iPhone 12 mini. The damn thing didn’t come with a charger box. This is an $800 phone. And I need to spend another $30 bucks to charge it. Talk about the scam of the century! When I tweeted Apple, iPhone, and Sprint, I was advised to read their “statement of environmental responsibility.” But let’s call a spade a spade- this box scam is good old-fashioned greed. And the environment? Just another excuse. In this case, critics are pretending that the border fence is “harmful to wildlife and the environment” and they are “urging the president to use the excess cash to restore habitat.”
“It’s a good thing that the construction crews are not at work right now. It’s a good thing that the bulldozers aren’t destroying the borderlands today as we speak. But we can’t breathe a sigh of relief until these construction contracts are canceled for good,” says Laiken Jordahl with the Center for Biological Diversity.
“We need to not just stop building the border wall, but actually begin restoring the land, healing the wilderness areas that have been destroyed by wall construction.”
Give me a break. I’ve been to the Texas border countless times.
There is plenty of room for the road runner to scoot over a few feet to squeeze in a fence. But it’s not just the fences and walls Biden is scrapping.
Agents say it’s not just the wall that faces cancellation. Trump ordered a border wall ‘system’ which includes cameras, lights and underground sensors – which provide agents with “situational” awareness of the border environment. Those amenities are the last to go in, meaning taxpayers already paid for many miles of fence and materials they may never receive.
I don’t care how he slices it. Biden screwed the pooch on this one. He was handed the safest border in modern history. And he’s created a nightmare of epic proportions. Just so he can say he undid Trump. Congratulations Joe. You’re even more demented that we could’ve guessed. And the toll will decades to pay.
