Biden’s attempts to divert border wall funding gets stopped by federal judge

March 14 — Tomorrow is the deadline for the Biden administration to appeal a judge’s ruling that money invested for border walls can not be diverted to something else. 

Congress approved $1.4 billion to be used for a wall along the Mexican border, but the Biden administration has tried to send that money to access roads, technology cameras, light sensors and other infrastructure. 

A federal judge in Texas temporarily blocked the administration from using the money on another enforcement measure, saying it has to be used on a barrier system. 

When Joe Biden took office in 2021, he paused the construction of a border wall that former president Donald Trump had begun to create. 

Pat Ryan of NewsTalk 103.7FM said, “That monster sold your steel that was bought and paid for out of the Trump administration for pennies on the dollar and continues to blame everybody except looking in the mirror with the drool and the crust around his face and what he’s done to this country on the southern border.”

Attorney Clint Barkdoll said, “It’s a big deadline coming up and the federal judge said no, that was illegal because Congress specifically earmarked the money for what were called border construction projects. I don’t know if Biden will appeal it. My guess is he probably will. But again, you look at all those polls. The southern border, border security continues to be one of the top if not the top issue among voters. Biden is on the wrong side of this. I mean, he would be wise to not appeal and just let those funds go to what they were supposed to do. But we’ll see by the close of business tomorrow if he challenges it.”
