President Joe Biden plans on halting Trump's US-Mexican Border Wall on Day One

After $15 billion looted from the Defense Department of the United States, and 450 miles (only 12 of which are brand new, the remaining 438 miles already had some form of barrier on them), Joe Biden, when he becomes President of the United States on January 20th, plans on halting the signature issue of former President Donald Trump. 

Trump and his supporters viewed the wall both as an actual deterrent to smuggling and illegal border crossing, and a powerful symbol that uninvited migrants were not welcome and that the United States was tightening security. For immigrant advocates and for many Mexicans, it has been an affront.

Although Biden won’t push to dismantle Trump’s physical legacy, he will undo sharp curbs on refugee admissions and a host of other immigration policies put in place through executive order.

A wall on the scale Trump demanded wasn’t even a minor priority during the Obama years for Republicans when they controlled both the House and Senate, and Cuellar sees little political will to push ahead with it once he’s gone.

“The wall came up after Trump came in. I think they will lose their appetite to fight for the wall,” he said.

Five days before the election, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said that by year’s end, 450 miles will be completed.

Another 210 miles are under construction, he said.

But at the current pace, contractors might only get to about 470 miles by the time Biden is sworn in.

Advocates for tougher border security say that’s not enough, though they concede there’s no hope that construction will continue under Biden.

True. But isn't the wall more of a fence? And a shitty one?

Yes, but we’re not allowed to tell them that.

Just like the election, if we start with facts, their little heads will tip over.
