Biden Admin Quietly Auctioning Off Parts Of Unused Border Wall: Report | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The Biden administration is quietly selling parts intended for extending the wall along the southern border, according to a report from The New York Post.

    An online auction house called GovPlanet has sold over 80 steel parts originally intended for the border wall, making around $2 million since April. More lots will be auctioned off later this month as some critics say Biden is getting rid of the unused parts before House Republicans can pass a bill requiring they be used to extend the border wall, according to the Post.

    Last month, the Democrat-controlled Senate passed its defense appropriations package that included a Republican-sponsored bill aimed at forcing the Biden administration to address the border crisis by extending the wall. Republican senators blasted the Biden administration for selling the parts for an extended border wall as illegal immigrants flood across the southern border.

    "The pennies made from selling the border wall will not be enough to pay the families who suffer from a criminal act committed by someone who crossed our open borders during the Biden administration," said Sen. James Lankford (R-OK).

    Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS), who co-sponsored the bill known as the "Finish It Act," told the Post that Biden's move was "outrageous, behind-the-scenes maneuvering."

    "This sale is a wasteful and ludicrous decision by the Biden administration that only serves as further proof they have no shame," Wicker said.

    The Post reported that the GovPlanet auction schedule picked up significantly in May after Wicker introduced the Finish It Act and increased again days after the Senate passed the defense package. House Republicans must pass a matching version of the bill before it becomes law.

    Republicans said that around $300 million in taxpayer-funded border wall parts have been abandoned since Biden became president. Money from the sale of the unused border wall parts reportedly goes back to the Pentagon.

    In a report earlier this month, a GovPlanet source told The Daily Upside, "We are legally not allowed to mention these are the border wall materials, or we could lose our jobs. But that's what they are - 110 percent."

    Since President Joe Biden took office, illegal immigrants have crossed into the U.S. in record numbers with estimates exceeding five million. According to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, there have been 1,973,092 southwest land border encounters so far in the fiscal year 2023, which began in October.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

After one full year of the Biden /Harris Administration: Does Joe Biden have the intellectual capacity, and, or the energy to lead the United States of America through the mess that he predominately created ... in just one year?

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?
