A strategy that Democrats have considered as a “racist” and “ineffective” solution to defects un the immigration system is about to be implemented by the administration of Vice President Joe Biden, who wants to go through with fresh border wall construction along the United States-Mexico border. A “single foot” of additional border wall was not going to be built while President Biden was in office, as he had earlier pledged.
The construction of a wall along the southern border has been a divisive subject for years, with Democrats opposing it on the grounds that it is both expensive and useless. They contended that it was superfluous and described it as racist and anti-immigrant, but their main point was that it was unnecessary. Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have been steadfast in their condemnation of President Trump’s proposed wall along the southern border, describing it as both immoral and foolish.
A partial shutdown of the federal government occurred in December 2018 and January 2019, as a direct result of President Trump’s insistence on receiving funds for the border wall during his term. Pelosi and Schumer were among the Democrats who passionately opposed the financing, describing the projected wall as “immoral,” “expensive,” and “ineffective.” Pelosi also voiced her opposition to the proposal. They claimed that it would not make the nation safer and accused Trump of holding federal employees “hostage” throughout the shutdown. Their argument was that it would not make the country safer.
Democratic legislators like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar used harsh words to oppose the border wall, with Ocasio-Cortez comparing it to the Berlin Wall and Omar calling it “racist and sinful.” Ocasio-Cortez compared it to the wall that separated East Germany from the rest of the world.
In spite of these accusations, throughout his administration, Trump was successful in securing money for the border wall, which has led to construction that is still underway. Initial actions taken by the Biden administration to suspend additional wall building in 2021 have been reversed, and the administration has opted to move through with projects financed under the Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill for fiscal year 2019.
This move has stirred some debate within the Democratic Party since it runs counter to a commitment made by Vice President Biden in the past as well as the position that his party has taken on the border wall. There is an argument among Democrats that border walls are useless and that money would be better spent on finding alternative immigration solutions.
The construction of a border wall continues to be a divisive subject in American politics, with Democrats and Republicans holding radically opposing views on the question of whether or not such a wall is necessary and the effect it will have on immigration.
