Dementia Joe Biden wants to cut border funding despite the dangerous border crisis he has created by a whopping 96 percent. Apparently, our wild-eyed tax-and-spend president finally found a budgetary item he wants to cut. Unfortunately, it is one of those areas he shouldn’t be cutting at all. border security funding
According to The Daily Signal:
His administration has presented Congress with a Department of Homeland Security budget proposal that calls for slashing spending on what it calls “Border Security Assets and Infrastructure” by 96%.
In fiscal year 2021, Congress approved $1,513,000,000 in funding for border security assets and infrastructure. Biden is now asking that Congress approve just $54,315,000 for fiscal year 2022. That is a reduction of $1,458,685,000—or 96.4%.
So, what is it that Biden wants to cut?
Biden’s DHS has presented Congress with a 562-page “overview” of its fiscal year 2022 budget proposal for Customs and Border Protection. The explanation for its “Border Security Assets and Infrastructure” plan is presented on pages 326 through 350 of this document.
The presentation divides “Border Security Assets and Infrastructure” into six categories: Integrated Fixed Towers; Remote Video Surveillance Systems; Mobile Video Surveillance System; MVSS-M2S2 Modular Mobile Surveillance System; Border Security Assets and Infrastructure End Items; and Border Wall System Program.
In the past two fiscal years—as reported in Biden’s proposal—the Border Wall System Program has been the most significant of these. “This investment,” it says, “includes real estate and environmental planning, land acquisition, wall system design, construction, and construction and oversight of a physical barrier system.”
In fiscal year 2020, it received $1,375,000,000. In fiscal year 2021, it received the same amount.
Biden wants to slash the whole thing.
He also wants to cut border surveillance systems and just about everything else meant to keep the border safe.
And yet, we have millions of illegals flooding the border, bringing trafficked children for sexual slavery, dozens of diseases, illegal drugs, and millions of people who can’t contribute to our society and will be a drag on our social systems.
And Biden wants to throw the door wide open for this.
