Walls are important to protect the POTUS, but not to protect the rest of us.
The Department of Homeland Security has spent nearly $500,000 in taxpayer funds to surround one of President Joe Biden’s Delaware homes with a fence, even as he signed an executive order halting border wall construction after taking office and as the department itself ended all wall-building contracts earlier this month.
“The southern border with Mexico is seeing the highest levels of illegal border crossings in 35 years, but the Department of Homeland Security has found one access point it can shore up — doling out $455,000 to a Delaware construction company for a fence around President Biden’s ‘Summer White House,’” the New York Post reported Saturday.
“In September, the department awarded a contract of $456,548 to Turnstone Holdings LLC for ‘PURCHASE AND INSTALLATION OF SECURITY FENCING AT 32 FARVIEW, REHOBOTH DELAWARE,’ according to USAspending.gov, an online database tracking federal government spending,” the outlet continued.
The contract was opened Sept. 21 and it is expected to be closed Dec. 31. Fence construction at Biden’s property is scheduled to be concluded by the latter date.
