(AbsoluteNews.com) – When President Joe Biden took office, he suspended the construction of former President Donald Trump’s border wall. Nearly six months after halting the work on the barrier, Republicans want to see some action.
This week, the House Republican Study Committee released a bill to give $22 billion to border states to continue building the wall. Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) said the contractors have already been paid to build the wall, but Biden is preventing it. Trump made similar comments when he visited the border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R). “Within two months, everything could have been completed, not sitting there rotting and rusting,” the former president said. “It was all set.”
Senator James Lankford (R-OK) also slammed Biden for refusing to build the wall. He pointed out that not working on it is wasting taxpayer money. Meanwhile, while the president refuses to do his job, the crisis at the border is getting worse.
It’s been 180 days since Biden halted border wall construction to ”study” the wall. The report was due 120 days ago & no one has seen it.
@JoeBiden where is your report?
It’s time to put Americans first. Stop wasting tax dollars and finish the wall. https://t.co/Zzdaai72VX

The crisis is so bad, Governor Abbott plans to finish the border himself. Biden has been such an ineffective leader when it comes to the border states, that they’re now being forced to protect themselves. If the GOP succeeds in passing its bill, funds will be on the way to make it happen.
