Reports indicate the Biden Admin may be selling materials intended for use in the border wall.

From The Epoch Times. Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are investigating reports that the Biden Administration is selling off materials procured to build President Donald Trump’s signature border wall.

Get involved in state level prayer with IFA.


In a letter to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Commanding General Scott Spellmon (pdf), the GOP lawmakers requested documents and information that will facilitate House oversight over the Biden administration’s actions in selling vital border wall components. …

The Epoch Times reported earlier that the Biden administration was quietly auctioning off millions of dollars worth of border wall materials amid President Biden’s pledge not to build “another foot” of President Trump’s signature project. …

Not ‘Another Foot’ of Border Wall

In contrast to his successor, President Trump was vocal about his determination to plug the gaps in the porous southern border and stem the flow of illegal immigration into the country.

As part of these efforts, President Trump erected more than 450 miles of new wall during his administration and, faced with funding hurdles, he even notably diverted some Pentagon funds to the project.

But on the day that President Biden took office, he issued a proclamation that rescinded the national emergency declaration that President Trump had relied on to divert some $10 billion from Pentagon coffers to border wall construction. …

A Department of Defense (DoD) spokesperson told The Epoch Times in an emailed statement that, following President Biden’s order, the DoD canceled border wall construction contracts and began disposing of unused material, some via auction.

The spokesperson insisted, however, that the DoD has kept Congress informed of these actions as a part of its routine briefings to lawmakers on border activities. …

‘False Political Rhetoric’: GOP

In their letter to Lt. General Spellmon, Mr. Comer and other Republican lawmakers alleged “waste and abuse of construction materials” and requested the DoD to provide all documents and communications relating to inventory or accounting of components procured by the federal government for the purposes of building the wall.

“On the day he was inaugurated, President Biden signed a proclamation halting the construction of the border wall, calling it ‘a waste of money that diverts attention from genuine threats to our homeland security,,” the letter reads, before calling President Biden’s remarks “patently false political rhetoric.”

The letter cited a Department of Homeland Security press release from Oct. 29, 2020 indicating that the border wall resulted in a significant decrease in illegal drug, border crossings, and human smuggling activities in areas where it was erected. …

The Republicans said that the decision of the Biden administration to discontinue construction of the border wall and dispose of its components is a grave mistake that makes the border less secure and threatens national security.

Selling the Border Wall

The DoD spokesperson told The Epoch Times that, since October 2021, the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), which manages excess property disposal for the DoD, has been offering excess raw construction materials—including cameras, electronic cables, and steel tubes—to potential users in the DoD, other federal agencies, as well as state and local governments through its standard process.

The spokesperson added that, beginning in March 2022, the DLA began allowing unclaimed border wall materials to be auctioned off. …

Previously, a DLA spokesperson confirmed to Power Corridor that a number of items up for auction on GovPlanet, an online auction marketplace, are “excess border wall materials that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers turned over to the DLA for disposition” and that these items are now “for sale.” …

Since April, the online auctioneer has sold more than 80 lots of steel “square structural tubes,” which were meant for use as vertical elements in the border wall’s panels, with 13 additional lots going under the hammer on Aug. 23 and Aug. 30, according to GovPlanet. …
