Donald Trump may have illegally diverted billions of tax dollars to build a border wall. On the first day he takes office, Joe Biden will end the waste.
According to a Biden Crossing fact sheet made available to PoliticusUSA, “the bipartisan majority in Congress refused to fund President Trump’s plans for a massive wall along our southern border in 2019, even after he shut down the government on the matter . Then he wastefully diverted billions of dollars into this construction. With the proclamation, President-elect Biden will announce the immediate termination of the national declaration of emergency, which served as a pretext to justify some of the diverted funding for the wall. The proclamation provides for an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow for a close review of the legality of the financing and contracting methods used and to find the best way to divert funds diverted from the previous administration to finance wall construction. “
Joe Biden is moving America forward on all fronts. There will be no more vanity projects and no more wasted taxpayers money on fake campaign props. The suspension of the building of the Wall, combined with the unveiling of a comprehensive immigration proposal, sends a loud and clear signal to the American people that the country is promoting real policies led by a substantive presidency.
As the nation faces multiple crises, it will have a thoughtful, compassionate, and result-oriented administration. It’s time to look forward, not backward, and Joe Biden will replace the frivolous with substance and show a real path for America’s future.
