(DCWatchdog.com) – He may not be willing to finish former President Donald Trump’s fence on the southern border of the United States of America to protect the country from criminals, potential terrorists, and deadly drugs entering the country, but President Joe Biden is more than willing to spend taxpayers funds to build a fence to prevent criminals from entering his personal property.
As Fox News notes in “Build the fence! Biden beach house barrier cost swells to nearly $500K“:
“This is one border barrier President Biden doesn’t seem to mind spending extra time and money on.
“The under-construction security fence around the commander-in-chief’s beach house, thought to be scheduled for completion late last year, actually won’t be done until the spring of 2023 — while the cost to taxpayers has ballooned by nearly $35,000.
“The Department of Homeland Security initially doled out $456,548 in September 2021 to Delaware-based construction company Turnstone Holdings LLC for the purchase and installation of security fencing at Biden’s Rehoboth Beach home, according to USAspending.gov, an online database tracking federal outlays.” [emphasis added]
“The increase in the fence funding comes as southern border states continue to complain about the Biden administration’s handling of the unprecedented migration crisis along the US-Mexico border.” [emphasis added]
What is your opinion about Biden building a fence to protect his property and family while refusing to build a wall to protect the country from criminals, drugs, and terrorists crossing the southern border of the United States? Please share your thoughts by emailing [email protected]. Thank you.
