Biden Admin Auctions Off Border Wall Part to Block Future GOP Restart

The Biden administration is selling off unused parts of border wall materials in an effort that could hurt the future restart of the project under a GOP president.

The news comes as some Republican leaders are fighting to pass legislation to stop the left's auction of the unused parts.

"The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is disposing of the excess border wall materials in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation," a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers spokesperson said in an email to Fox News Digital on Sunday.

"USACE has already transferred approximately $154 million worth of the roughly $260 million of bollard panels and other materials in accordance with standard excess property disposition procedures. USACE stands ready to implement a decision regarding disposition of the remaining materials," it added.

"A website called GovPlanet, which offers online auctions for military surplus, listed hundreds of unused parts of the southern barrier in recent months," the Daily Mail reported.

"Since April 81 steel square structural tubes - which would have been used within the wall's 30ft panels - have been sold for a profit of $2 million," it added.

The report comes as Biden was criticized by Republicans for avoiding the border during visits to Arizona and New Mexico earlier this month.

The border crisis has spiraled out of control with Biden in office, with over 5 million people crossing the border in less than 3 years, plus an unknown number of getaways.

The border crossings have also become a national security issue as the number of migrants from countries beyond Latin America has increased, including people from more than 100 countries.

The auctioning of border wall parts won't help though it will certainly fire up conservatives who are already upset over the Biden administration's border policies.
