Biden Admin Spent Border Wall Funds on Climate Agenda, Watchdog Reveals

Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has blown through the taxpayer funds allocated for border wall construction by spending the money on globalist “climate change” initiatives.

According to a new report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the Biden admin spent the tax dollars on “environmental planning.”

The GAO investigated whether Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) broke the law when it effectively blocked the use of taxpayer dollars to build a wall along the Southern Border.

The watchdog group launched the probe at the request of Republican Reps. Jack Bergman (R-MI) and Jodey Arrington (R-TX).

While GAO’s final report clears the DHS of breaking the law, it confirmed that the federal agency used congressionally appropriated funds meant for the border wall to pay for Biden’s climate agenda.

The funds were, instead, spent on “environmental planning” and efforts “to remediate or mitigate environmental damage from past border wall construction.”

Republicans on the House Budget Committee, including Bergman and Arrington, blasted Biden over the revelations.

They characterized the GAO’s findings as confirmation that the Biden admin has spent taxpayer funds meant to enhance border security to further its environmental agenda.

Congress previously approved funds for DHS to build a border barrier between fiscal year 2018 and fiscal year 2021.

However, President Biden and his appointees quickly instituted a new policy upon entering office in 2021.

The new policy ensured that “no more American taxpayer dollars (would) be diverted to construct a border wall”

Cabinet secretaries, including DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, were ordered to work together to produce plans for how to shift funds away from border wall construction.

In 2021, DHS released a report detailing how it would look to redirect funds meant for the wall to instead pay for things like “environmental planning,” reviewing upcoming eminent domain actions and considering environmental remediation efforts in areas that had been the site of previous construction, according to GAO’s report.

As Slay News has previously reported, Biden’s eminent domain agenda involved seizing land from farmers to supposedly “fight climate change.”

The agency then changed its plans in July 2022, applying an amendment that made environmental remediation a top priority for the agency’s expenditure of the funds appropriated for fiscal years 2018-2021.

The Biden administration has made great efforts to roll back or replace many of the immigration and border policies of President Donald Trump.

However, the situation at the border has deteriorated massively since 2021.

There have been nearly 8 million land encounters at the southwest border since October 2021, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

The Congressional Budget Office reported in January that more than 3.3 million people came to the U.S. illegally, were released into the country via parole, or overstayed their permission to remain in the country in fiscal year 2023 alone.

The situation at the border set the stage for congressional Republicans to attempt to impeach Mayorkas earlier this spring.

The House voted to impeach Mayorkas in February, but the Senate quickly dismissed an impeachment trial along partisan lines earlier in April.
