The Biden administration and a top Democrat in Congress are moving to repurpose billions of dollars for the Trump administration’s border wall to other means of achieving the same goal of deterring illegal migration.
House Appropriations Vice Chairman Henry Cuellar, a centrist Democrat who represents a district that includes 200 miles of the Texas-Mexico border, has spent weeks trying to negotiate a deal between lawmakers of both parties, federal law enforcement on the border, and President Biden’s political appointees.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Trump administration acquired $15.5 billion for nearly 800 miles of border wall projects, which included the 30-foot steel barrier, lighting, roads, ground sensors, and other technology. Biden halted construction of the wall on Jan. 20, just as 450 miles was completed. The construction process was suspended for 60 days as the government determines how to “redirect funding and repurpose contracts” for the remaining 300 miles worth of wall system that was funded.
Cueller, who has long opposed any type of physical barrier on the United States-Mexico border, is reportedly in talks with the Biden administration and U.S. Customs and Border Protection on how the remainder of the money will be spent.
Cuellar is also calling for a pathway to citizenship for illegal alien workers in the US:
Essential workers make America run.
