Taxpayer money has never been so criminally misallocated — and that’s saying a lot.
The House Democrats released their budget plan this week, much to the shock of every concerned taxpayer who is witnessing America’s destruction at the US-Mexico border. The plan allots millions for military and other security in numerous Arab nations while completely stripping any funds for the construction of Former President Trump’s border wall.
You read that correctly: the Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, have put their stamp of approval on a budget that jeopardizes U.S. national security while using taxpayer dollars to bolster security in numerous Arab nations.
The House Appropriations Committee, controlled by Pelosi’s Democrats, put forward their full budget plan for the Department of Defense on Tuesday. Countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, and Oman will all receive ramped up security paid for by the United States. The Democrats have determined $870 million in taxpayer dollars will be used for such purposes.
No where in the DOD budget is there a single dollar for the wall protecting our southern border.
Read the Democrats’ full budget here:
Of nearly-$900 million Democrats are giving to the Middle East, $150 million will go to “enhance border security” in Jordan in addition to providing $500 million to “assist the government of Jordan and their armed forces to enhance security along its borders.”
While the DOD budget spends nearly a trillion dollars securing Arab nations, an accompanying budget for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was also released on Tuesday. The Democrat proposal strips all funding, every last dollar, for the wall along the US-Mexico border.
In other words, the agency tasked with securing our nation (DOD) and the agency tasked with securing our borders (DHS) are both being stripped of any means to ensure the safety or security purely for political reasons and to spite the previous administration.
The previous DHS budget provided $2.06 billion for border wall construction, but that money is now being spent elsewhere. The recently released budget also provides no additional funding for U.S. Border Patrol agents despite a massive surge in border apprehensions as of late. Also in the bill, the Democrats are funneling more than $100 million that was previously allocated for the border wall to the Department of Interior.
The funding initiatives come as illegal immigration has continued to skyrocket under Joe Biden’s administration’s destruction of Trump’s Remain-in-Mexico policy and their expansive use of Catch and Release whereby border crossers are being quickly released into the U.S. interior after a brief detainment with DHS.
Current projections predict that about 1.2 million border crossers will be encountered at the border by the end of the year and hundreds of thousands more will successfully cross the border, undetected.
