Biden to Build the Wall!… Around His Delaware Beach House (and You’re Paying for It)

On his very first day in office, President Joe Biden made it clear he is ideologically opposed to building walls. He doesn’t like them, they’re unfriendly, and they don’t work, are among the reasons he and his administration have cited for halting construction on the wall along the Mexican border.

So guess whose building a wall now? Joe Biden!

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has acknowledged that it began construction of a $456,584 “security fence” around the president’s vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Del., in September – just as DHS was wrapping up a fiscal year which set a new record for the number of illegal border-crossers.

The news begs some obvious questions like, why are they spending nearly half a million bucks on construction of security fencing around the president’s beach home, if security fencing doesn’t work? Or, why is the security of the president’s beach house more important than the security of our borders and the safety of the people who live along the border? And why has President Biden spent 70 days in Delaware since taking office, but claims to not have had time to personally visit the border?

I guess we can call these the $456,548 questions.
