WATCH IT: Biden continues to build taxpayer-funded wall around beach house amid border crisis, documents scandalThank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
President Joe Biden is fortifying his beach house in Rehoboth, Delaware, with a taxpayer-funded wall, while strongly opposing a wall of southern border amid the migrant crisis and as his administration deals with the discovery of classified documents at his other home in Wilmington, Delaware.
During the first 100 days of fiscal year 2023, beginning October 1, more than 718,000 migrants tried to enter the US through the southern border, but Biden refused to build a barrier to manage the flow of illegal crossing.
While the president remains opposed to building a wall to control the ongoing border crisis, construction of a great white picket fence is underway at the president’s vacation home. The wall is expected to cost taxpayers $490,324.
Plans for Biden’s wall began in 2021 after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) approved a contract for more security at the residence. Fox News Digital captured photos of the new fence around the Beach House in Rehoboth, Delaware, which is expected to be completed in September.
Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, Biden insisted that “not one foot” of the border wall would be built if he were elected.
“There will be no more foot on the wall in my administration,” Biden said during an interview. “I will make sure we have border protection, but that will be based on making sure we use high-tech capacity to deal with it. And at ports of entry – that’s where all the bad stuff happens.”
Despite the promise that not one step of border wall would be built during his presidency, his administration approved the construction on a border wall in Yuma, Arizona, in July 2022.
In December, however, the administration is suing Arizona for using shipping containers to create a border wall to prevent migrants from entering the country.
Biden recently visited the border eight days ago for the first time since he became president, but avoided areas where Trump-era walls still stood.
The White House counsel’s office told Fox News on Monday that it has no visitor logs for the president’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, after classified documents were found there in an unsecured location.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., vowed to continue pressuring the Biden administration for answers about the classified documents.
