Democrat Effort to Rescind Border Wall Funds Fail

[Public Domain]

A Democrat-led effort to rescind $1.9 billion in Trump administration border wall funds has failed to gain traction after Republicans’ tough opposition.

The Hill reports:

Democrats previously sought to repurpose the nearly $2 billion in funding, outlining plans last year to reroute the dollars for border security technology, IT modernization efforts and environmental mitigation efforts, among other proposals.

In remarks to The Hill this week, Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security chair Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said the funding secured in his panel for fiscal year 2022 will still fund the party’s proposed plans.

“There’s other money in the bill for that. So, we funded all of our priorities. But, in the end, our allocation was big enough that we didn’t need to use that old border wall funding for our new priorities,” Murphy said. “We got an allocation that was big enough to be able to fund the new priorities.”

Murphy said some of the previously allocated border wall funds that weren’t rescinded will go toward tying up loose ends on parts of the construction that could pose hazards.

Regarding any leftover funds, Murphy said, “It’ll continue to be what it is now. It’s an unspent balance and it will continue to be an unspent balance.”

So, what, exactly are those “other priorities”? Not a priority to stop hundreds of pounds of fentanyl from coming across the border? Child sex trafficking? I guess the priority is new democrat voters, but how much does that cost? Certainly not multi-millions of the wall funding.

Nah — nothing important like that or things that matter to the people. Probably focused on their ridiculous “green” stuff! These people are so superficial and narcissistic it’s sickening!

Electronic protection does NOTHING but show you the crime. It doesn’t stop crime or prevent it. All it does is show you the scene and the act being committed…there’s no law enforcement unless the criminal can be identified. That’s a long shot in most cases.
