Turns out the contractors have contracts and still have to be paid.
According to former Border Patrol chief Rodney Scott, at the start of the Biden administration, some $5 million a day was being spent as work on the wall stopped. Why not at least finish out the contracts? The wall by definition has to at least slow the flow of people into the United States, even if you think there are better solutions.
You see, most people have trouble walking through walls. It’s, you know, physics.
But for President Biden, $5 million a day was spent so he would not be seen doing something Donald Trump wanted.
