Biden terminates Trump order to build border wall, says “I have determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border was unwarranted”

The White House announced Thursday President Biden has terminated the Trump emergency order used to justify constructing the border wall.

Biden wrote in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “I have determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border was unwarranted.”

“I have also announced that it shall be the policy of my administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall, and that I am directing a careful review of all resources appropriated or redirected to that end,” he added.

Democrat Raul M. Grijalva took to Twitter to write:

Trump’s national emergency was never about security.

It was about stealing money to fund a monument to his racist policies along the Southern Border.

Now we must cancel the contracts & ensure that not another foot of border wall is constructed.
