Former Border Patrol Head: Biden Paying $5 MILLION PER DAY To Not Build A Wall
Warns 400,000 illegals have entered the U.S. this year and 90% will never be deported
The former chief of the Border Patrol Rodney Scott outlined this week that the Biden administration is still paying contractors who were supposed to build the border wall up to $5 million per day even though all construction has been halted.
Scott also warned that an unprecedented number of illegal immigrants are being allowed to pour over the border, with over 90% remaining undocumented.
Speaking to Fox News anchor Bret Baier, Scott pointed out that a presidential proclamation from January to pause construction on the border barrier for 60 days expired months ago, yet contractors are still being paid for doing nothing.
“We’re supposed to do an in depth study and then come up with a plan going forward,” Scott said, adding “As Border Patrol did its part, everything, that was done within about two weeks, several briefings later, there really had not been any decisions made, it went well beyond the 60 days. Many of those projects today are just still on hold. So we’re paying contractors, for a while it was almost $5 million a day between DOD and DHS.”
“Wait, $5 million a day to not build the wall?” a stunned Baier questioned.
“To not build a wall,” Scott replied.
He continued, “There are stacks and stacks of border wall panels, there’s hundreds of miles of fiber optic cabling, there’s hundreds of cameras that were being installed with that, that are just sitting, there’s no action being taken.”
“We’re not building more wall. There’s no conversation. There’s no there’s no adult dialogue, if you will,” Scott further urged, adding “It’s just a black and white decision. The administration said we’re not doing it. So we’re not doing it. That money is just trickling away to those contractors for not doing work each day.”
On the surge of illegals at the border, Scott said the Biden administration is purposefully “choosing not to take simple, common-sense steps to secure the border.”
“I personally participated in some of the transition meetings; my staff participated in all of the transition meetings; we made it very clear that if we dropped all the initiatives that had been put in place over the last several years that we would get an influx of mass migration that we would not be able to control,” he further proclaimed.
“The result of that is the message goes out, and then instead of having a couple hundred encounters a day, we quickly went up to about 6,000 encounters a day,” Scott urged.
