WASHINGTON, DC – Walls don’t work. That has been the message of the Democrat Party since former President Donald J. Trump began his work on reinforcing and expanding the country’s southern border wall. Today, from the confines of a heavily walled and fortified Washington, D.C., complete with barriers, walls, barbed wires and armed American soldiers, President Joe Biden ordered the stoppage of work on the wall at America’s southern border.
“Like every nation, the United States has a right and a duty to secure its borders and protect its people against threats. But building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border is not a serious policy solution,” Biden said today. “It is a waste of money that diverts attention from genuine threats to our homeland security. My Administration is committed to ensuring that the United States has a comprehensive and humane immigration system that operates consistently with our Nation’s values.”
” In furtherance of that commitment, I have determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border in Proclamation 9844 of February 15, 2019 (Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Southern Border of the United States), was unwarranted. It shall be the policy of my Administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall. I am also directing a careful review of all resources appropriated or redirected to construct a southern border wall,” the President added.
