On Monday, Congresswoman Yvette Herrell shared a video of her at the United States’ southern border with Mexico and all the materials meant to construct the border wall left untouched by the Joe Biden administration after he stopped construction of the wall.
The failure by Biden to finish the wall and his pro-amnesty positions on immigration have led to a humanitarian crisis at the border, with hundreds of thousands of criminal aliens attempting to enter the United States illegally.
Rep. Herrell spoke out against the wasteful lack of action on the materials left untouched by Biden. She said in a video posted on Twitter, “Not only are we looking at the gaps in the border barrier, but now we’re checking out all this material that’s sitting here on the ground. There’s a crusher on the ground that’s already crushed so much rock and they’re ready with the material. They have rebar, they have all these bollards stacked up.”
“If we don’t finish the wall, if we don’t finish the gaps in the barrier, the American public will be paying to either destroy all this material or store it,” said Herrell, adding that “it will actually cost the American population more money to stop construction on the wall then to go and spend the dollars that have been adjudicated and passed by Congress.”
“Again, if we’re not out here showing the American population what’s really happening on the southern border, you’ll never know because you won’t see this on TV. But all this material is sitting here waiting to be used and it will be at the expense of the American taxpayer.”
Since Biden has been installed, 351,803 illegal border crossings have been recorded as of the end of March, per the Department of Homeland Security statistics. The Joe Biden regime has repeatedly denied the existence of a border crisis and has tapped Kamala Harris to manage the issue. She has yet to visit the border.
Gov, Michelle Lujan Grisham recently denied Congresswoman Herrell’s request for New Mexico National Guard troops to be stationed at the southern border to assist with the crisis despite Lujan Grisham sending troops to Washington D.C. in January to assist with security for inaugural festivities.
