President Joe Biden is paying federal contractors upwards of $3 million every day to not construct border wall along the United States-Mexico border, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) says.

During an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Ernst detailed her latest legislation titled the BUILD IT Act which would turn over the unused border wall materials, already paid for by American taxpayers, to states that could then continue constructing the barrier at the border.

“and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation” Acts 17:26

In January 2021, Biden halted all construction of border wall.

“[My legislation] turns over those unused materials, that were purchased to construct the southern border barrier, to any state that wishes to finish the job. What we have done — we have purchased these materials,” Ernst said.

“Joe Biden canceled the construction of a border wall along the southern border, calling it a waste of money,” she continued. “But since he canceled that contract, the administration has continued paying contractors upwards of $3 million every single day to watch over these unused materials.”

“So why are we paying people to watch over materials that will not be used in this administration, according to him? Why don’t we turn it over then to the state governments who do wish to construct a border wall?” Ernst said.
