Biden Sold Off Border Wall Materials Before Flip

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The Biden administration has been selling off materials that were supposed to be used to construct barriers at the border with Mexico just days before it approved the construction of a new, 20-mile stretch of border wall.

Listings on GovPlanet, an auction site for state, local and federal agencies to auction off surplus inventory, show it has been selling off lots of square iron and steel wall tubing for tens of thousands of dollars as recently as Wednesday. On Thursday, the Department of Homeland Security approved the construction of the new border wall along the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.

The auction house still has active lots available, which do not end until the latter half of October. The Biden administration said it only approved the new wall because the funding for it had to be used and construction completed in 2023.

When news of the auctions first emerged in August, Republicans accused the federal government of wasting taxpayers’ money. The recent approval of a new stretch of barrier raises questions as to whether the decision to sell off the materials—which are located in Red Rock, Arizona—may have been short-sighted on behalf of the administration.
