Oh, and they can't wait for open borders to finish the Republic off. But something, something, something tweets.

Democrats, The Enemy Within.



The halt to built new border wall systems ordered by President Joe Biden will mean the loss of some 5,000 construction jobs, according to the most recent former Chief Operating Officer of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“Conservatively, it’s going to cost about 5,000 jobs—construction workers—right now,” Mark A. Morgan told Breitbart News. “It’s gonna cost them their livelihood.”

...

Congress had recently appropriated $1.4 billion for border wall construction in the 2021 National Defense Authorization package.

Morgan told Breitbart that those in the steel, concrete, and technology industries who supply the materials for the border walls will also be affected.

“Now, keep in mind, they’re going to be paid for what they produced so far,” he said when referring to union members in the steel industry that produce the bollards. “But for the 350 miles that Congress funded for construction … the money they are counting on to feed their families and pay their mortgage, all that goes out the window.”

He said that there are about 270,000 tons of steel bollard fencing that have already been produced but not assembled.

“Think about that. We are not only going to have to pay the contractors for that, but then we’re gonna have to pay the additional money to either destroy it, which is unconscionable, or store it,” he spoke of the costs, adding that there are other partially completed areas that will have to cost to undo, such as paying the contractor to pull out pieces of rebar previously laid.

“Conservatively we’re looking at costing taxpayers billions of dollars,” he told the outlet.

...

Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s pick to head the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), said he hasn’t looked at what he’d do with the current border wall, including the possibility of removing portions of it.

I'm sure they would allow it to fall into disrepair eventually, then say it needs to be torn down

Biden doesn't know or care....He's a sock puppet for the commie stooges that have been assembled around him by The Swamp.

I'm telling ya....He's literally John Gill....


He's already been heard on video saying he didn't know what he was signing.

Would somebody go check the mailbox to see if that check from Mexico got here yet? If it has, those people can keep working.

Really? Trump knows how to build things that last? If that is true, then why is Biden taking down everything he's done? Trump only did EO's, and those are being taken down every day. And by the way, his border wall is a miserable failure.

Good. This wall was trump's asinine boondoggle in the first place. Now we don't have to throw good money after bad. These people and companies can get jobs working on worthwhile projects. The already produced fencing can be re-purposed.

Even if some morons oppose funding health and social programs that actually benefit us, we can always use the money to repair the nation's long-neglected bridges and power grids. And how about a few desalinization plants to serve our areas subject to draught?

Its a very worthwhile project. It will keep thousands of illegals, who cost we tax payers billions every year, out of our country. You don't care about those billions but most American do.

Social programs can kiss my ass. Learn to take care of yourself.

States can erect desalinization plants any time they want to.

Yeah, and we need infrastructure to make it easier for illegal to cross the border. Dems will need them in 2022 and 2024.
