Biden builds taxpayer-funded wall around Delaware beach house despite opposing border barriers


President Biden’s taxpayer-funded wall for his Delaware Vacation Home is being built as he continues to voice his staunch opposition to building a wall on the US southern border.

Photos sourced exclusively from Daily Mail show that construction on the wall around Biden’s Rehoboth Beach home began last week. The wall is expected to cost taxpayers $490,324 as it is funded through a government contract through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The photos show the ongoing construction of a tall white fence and gray stone pillars on the side of Biden’s home, with a half wall of gray stone and a large black iron gate at the front of the property.

Plans for the wall began in 2021 when DHS awarded a contract for more home security. However, the nearly $500,000 cost of the wall is a $34,000 increase in cost to the taxpayer over Turnstone Holdings LCC’s original contract price, Fox News Digital reported in August.

The wall around Biden’s home is expected to be completed in September.

Biden vowed to stop all building a border wall on the campaign trail before the 2020 presidential election, telling crowds that “no more” would be built if he was elected.

“There will be no more foot on the wall in my administration,” Biden said during an interview. “I will make sure we have border protection, but it will be based on making sure we use high-tech capacity to deal with it. And at ports of entry – that’s where all the bad stuff happens.”

Despite taking such action, the Biden administration later quietly approved construction of a section of border wall in Yuma, Arizona, in July 2022 after Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Arizona, called on the president to secure the border.

In December, however, the administration sued Arizona to use shipping containers to create a border wall to stem the massive flow of illegal immigration into the state. The lawsuit alleges the state is trespassing on federal land.

During his first trip to the border as president last weekend, Biden avoided visiting sections of the border wall around El Paso, Texas, that were built or strengthened by former President Trump. Instead, he visited an older, pre-existing section of the wall.
