Biden To Build $490,000 Taxpayer-Funded Wall Around Delaware Home
Democrat President Joe Biden is building a wall – but not the one we desperately need at our Southern Border.
According to a new report from Fox News, The Department of Homeland Security just awarded a Delaware company nearly $500,000 to build a fence around Biden’s home.
Which will be taxpayer-funded, of course.

This comes just before Biden is expected to return to his multimillion-dollar beach house in his home state of Delaware.
Per the DHS contract with Turnstone Holdings LLC, the “purchase and installation of security fencing” at Biden’s residence was awarded for $456,548 back in September of 2021, but has since grown to $490,324 this summer.
Critics of Biden are calling out the hypocrisy of this new wall, especially at a time when migrant encounters at our Southern Border continue to near 200,000 month after month.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported a whopping 199,976 illegal immigrants at the border in July. Though it’s worth noting that this is a slight dip from the 207,416 reported encounters in June.
There is still, however, by no means a firm grasp on the heavy influx of migrants entering the country illegally daily.
These numbers are alarming because of the volume, but also because Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas recently claimed that the border was “secure.”
Moreover, with elections approaching, the Biden administration will “close four massive gaps” in the border wall that was started under former President Donald Trump near Yuma, Arizona.
It’s worth noting that Biden “pledged during his campaign to cease all future wall construction.”
Even with this move, Biden and his administration are working hard to distance themselves from the Trump wall initiative. As they are not saying anything about their effectiveness when asked about it by reporters.
Instead, they try to shield away from the Southern Border crisis, while assuring Americans that it is under control and being handled.
One of the biggest drivers for this seemingly out-of-character action from the Biden admin stems from the Abbott-Ducey initiative that Democrats are now dubbing a “growing humanitarian crisis.”
DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has called for the national guard to help deal with the influx of illegal migrants that are being bused into her city. As she wants to combat “people who are seeking asylum coming across the country to get to their final destinations.”
Bowser also said DC would “continue to pursue federal involvement.”
4,000 migrants cross into Texas every day on a slow day.
TX Governor Greg Abbott has said since President Biden won’t visit the border, Texas will bring the border to him.
Now, D.C. mayor calls it a “crisis”, and requests National Guard assistance. https://t.co/WL2fAF7AnR

Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott immediately fired back at Bowser, essentially telling her to pound sand. “D.C. is experiencing a fraction of the disastrous impact the border crisis has caused Texas,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Mayor Bowser should stop attacking Texas for securing the border & demand Joe Biden do his job,” he added.
