REPORT: Biden Admin Spending $6M/Day to STOP Border Wall Construction

'These are self-inflicted wounds...'

The Joe Biden administration is paying nearly $6 million a day to halt the construction of the extended border wall started under former President Donald Trump, a senior Department of Homeland Security official told Breitbart.

During his first week in office, Biden signed an executive order implementing a 60-day pause on border construction contracts, including the southern border wall.

But that doesn’t mean federal money has stopped flowing to the project.

The contractors are still being paid for rental expenses or cost of ownership while their equipment sits idle, the official explained.

The administration is also spending $86 million to put migrant families in hotels.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials confirmed that the agency was awarded the multi-million dollar contract this week as part of the federal government’s effort to mitigate the worsening humanitarian crisis at the southern border.

The six-month contract provides 1,239 beds and “other necessary services.”

Each family will receive a comprehensive health assessment, including coronavirus testing. Other services the government plans to provide include: “victim services, therapeutic regiments, educational resources and mental health care,” according to Fox News.

Biden, however, still refuses to admit he’s dealing with a crisis.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki insisted on Monday that unaccompanied minor children fleeing their countries for the U.S. “is not a crisis,” and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas maintained that border officials are just dealing with a “stressful challenge” and nothing more.

But top immigration officials have privately warned that Biden’s own policies are to blame.

He halted construction of the border wall, repealed the “Remain in Mexico” policy, and promised a path to citizenship for all illegal immigrants.

“These are self-inflicted wounds,” one DHS official said.

Recent reports suggest Biden is trying to cover up the sheer scope of the influx by shipping illegal immigrants away from the border. 

Montana Sen. Steve Daines, a Republican, reported that some of the Biden administration’s shipments of migrants had arrived in his state, near the Canadian border.

Other reports over the weekend indicated that the administration could begin releasing illegal immigrants into the US without even providing them a court date for an asylum hearing.
