On September 21 the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) awarded a $456,548 contract for “purchase and installation of security fencing at the $2.7 million home Biden bought in 2017. The work should be completed by the end of this year.
Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas cited the surge in illegal border crossings as “the chief reason why this expenditure was undertaken. With nearly two million new unvetted foreigners expected to enter the country this year and who knows how many next year, added protection of the President is vitally needed.”
The Secretary explained that “the cancellation of the completion of the border wall started by former president Trump left a large hole in the barrier. Criminals and terrorists are now free to move about the country. We acknowledge that we cannot protect everyone, but we certainly can and must protect the most important person in America. The less than half-a-million price tag saves us the billions it would have cost to complete Trump’s border wall. These savings can now be applied to housing and feeding millions of new immigrants.”
