Put me down in support of the Rehoboth Border Wall. No, seriously. After all, walls work in securing against intruders!
Where that matters depends on where Joe Biden lives, however:
This is one border barrier President Biden doesn’t seem to mind spending extra time and money on.
The under-construction security fence around the commander-in-chief’s beach house, thought to be scheduled for completion late last year, actually won’t be done until the spring of 2023 — while the cost to taxpayers has ballooned by nearly $35,000.
The Department of Homeland Security initially doled out $456,548 in September 2021 to Delaware-based construction company Turnstone Holdings LLC for the purchase and installation of security fencing at Biden’s Rehoboth Beach home, according to USAspending.gov, an online database tracking federal outlays.
That cost has grown closer to $500,000, the New York Post reports, thanks to “additional work” and hardware changes since the initial contract award. That seems like a rather large amount for a security wall, let alone a security “fence,” but the cost in this case is worth it. After all, the safety of a president is a paramount consideration, and if a “border wall” around the Rehoboth Beach house is necessary — and that seems like a very reasonable proposition — then we should make sure it gets built, and built quickly, especially considering how much time Biden spends there in his presidency.
That’s especially true considering the mission and the location. The Biden house is, after all, adjacent to a large body of water that would be impossible to secure. We could have Secret Service agents do patrols on the beach and around the perimeter of the house, but that would leave wide gaps in security unless we hired a lot more agents. Without an effective barrier around the property, you’d need enough to station agents within reach of one another to make sure no one slipped through — -whether they be real malefactors, people looking to squat for a while, or just multi-level marketing salespeople wanting to scam the locals.
So you bet I endorse the building of the Rehoboth Border Wall, and I’m not even joking about that. It should have already been built by this point, in fact. The Bidens should be secure in that house, for the good of the country as well as the family.
Now, if only Joe Biden would give the same exact considerations to people who live in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, and to the Border Patrol. Biden’s getting his security wall on the beach and around his property — where’s ours? Especially in the border crisis that Biden himself created with his loose talk about being welcoming and ending the previous administration’s effective disincentives, we need it every bit as much as Biden does.
