The border wall built between Mexico and the United States under Donald Trump is being dismantled, disposed of, and auctioned off by the Biden government.
Since April 2022, border wall components, including “thick wall tubes,” have been auctioned off on GovPlanet.
Additionally confirming the accusations, the Pentagon acknowledged they are selling “wall materials.”
More proof that the Biden administration is uninterested in border security.
According to a statement from Pentagon spokesperson Raini Brunson, “The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is disposing of the excess border wall materials in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation,” the New York Post reported.
GovPlanet was instructed not to mention Trump when advertising the wall materials by the Department of Defense.
“We are legally not allowed to mention these are the border wall materials, or we could lose our jobs,” a GovPlanet source revealed. “But that’s what they are—110 percent.”
“USACE has already transferred approximately $154 million worth of the roughly $260 million of bollard panels and other materials in accordance with standard excess property disposition procedures. USACE stands ready to implement a decision regarding the disposition of the remaining materials,” Brunson said in further comments.
Jonathan Lines, the supervisor of Yuma County, expressed his displeasure with the Biden administration’s choice, especially since he had expected them to fill in the holes in Arizona’s border wall.
Plans to close the holes at Yuma’s Morelos Dam, which has been a troublesome entry site for illegal immigrants, were previously revealed by the Department of Homeland Security.
“The wall closing off the gaps at the dam is still under construction,” Lines told The Daily Caller.
“Everything to complete the wall was already in place on the ground and purchased, and now they have gone out and redesigned the enclosures for the gaps. This is an example of government waste at its finest,” he added.
“They have been using a different product, but our panels in Yuma that are complete are still there,” Lines added.
This occurs in the midst of the current spike in illegal immigration to the US.
The number of unauthorized crossings along the U.S.-Mexico border increased by 33% between June and July.
The administration has paid 20 project locations’ private landowners to keep 20,000 extra border wall parts.
According to Fox News, overhead lights, electrical and stormwater supplies, and security cameras were some of the additional expenses related to storing the border wall materials.
Members of the Republican Senate Armed Forces Committee explained the issue in a letter to Melissa Dalton, assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense and hemispheric affairs.
“Every day, the Department of Defense pays $130,000 to store, maintain, and secure these materials,” the senators stated in their letter.
“Since you were sworn in as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Hemispheric Affairs a year ago, you have allowed the Department to pay over $47 million to store these panels,” they said.
