As migrants flood over porous border, taxpayers fund security fence at Biden’s home

Given that the southern border with Mexico is basically wide open and being invaded daily by thousands of illegal immigrants, with the numbers totally well above several million in the short time President Biden has been in office — and this doesn’t count the hundreds of thousands of known “gotaways” — any talk of walls or fencing is going to be met with skepticism.

Particularly when it involves building such barriers around Biden’s multimillion-dollar beach house in his home state of Delaware.

The president is returning to his beach home after vacationing in Kiawah Island, South Carolina — his fifth trip home this summer. Interestingly, he is returning without first lady Jill Biden, who is reportedly staying behind following her recent positive test for Covid-19 that is being treated with Paxlovid.

“Biden is expected to arrive at his $2.7 million summer house in the North Shores community of Rehoboth Beach on Saturday after spending the last couple nights in Wilmington, Delaware, according to data released by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA),” Fox News reported. “On Wednesday, Biden was briefly at the White House signing of the $739 billion Inflation Reduction Act into law.”

A taxpayer-funded security fence is being built around the president’s home, with the cost having “ballooned to nearly $500,000,” according to Fox News, which noted that the Department of Homeland Security awarded $456,548 to a Sussex County company to construct the security fence in September 2021.

Turnstone Holdings LLC was granted the contract for the “purchase and installation of security fencing” at the Biden residence, according to USAspending.gov, an online database of federal government spending. Construction of the fence began in Sept. 2021 and is expected to be completed by June 6, 2023.

The Secret Service declined to comment when reached by Fox News Digital.

“Due to the need to maintain operational security, the U.S. Secret Service does not comment on the means, methods or resources used to conduct our protective operations,” the agency said.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
