BUILD THE WALL NOW: Sen. Ted Budd Intros Bill to Force Biden to Complete Border Wall

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.14.23

Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) will introduce a bill on Tuesday forcing President Biden to complete construction on the southern border wall and unlock $2.1 billion dollars in funding for the project.

Budd is calling it the Build the Wall Now Act.

From Fox News:

Should it pass, the bill would require border wall construction to restart within 24 hours, prevents the Homeland Security secretary from canceling any of the contracts related to border wall construction, and requires the secretary to uphold all negotiated border wall agreements.

“President Biden has created the worst border crisis in American history. Instead of taking steps to solve this crisis, the Biden administration has tried to run out the regulatory clock on border wall construction,” Budd, who formerly served in the House, told Fox News Digital. “My Build the Wall Now Act ends this administration’s excuses and forces them to restart wall construction immediately. It’s time for a comprehensive solution to end the Biden Border Crisis, and this bill does just that.”

Budd’s office said the measure also makes previously appropriated funds for the border wall available until spent, so the funding will not expire. It also limits those funds to being used only for the effective barrier designs the Trump administration was implementing.

More than 156,000 migrants were logged at the southern border in January —not counting the number of ‘gotaways’ that are now undocumented and potentially loose within the United States.

Budd shared the news of his bill on Twitter:

“I’m proud to introduce my first U.S. Senate bill today, the Build the Wall Now Act. It’s time for President Biden to stop the excuses and restart border wall construction.”
