Ilhan Omar rips Biden over plans to resume border wall construction

Rep. Ilhan Omar ripped President Joe Biden for his administration’s reported plans to resume construction on parts of the border wall.

“It’s shameful and unacceptable for @POTUS to continue the construction of Trump’s xenophobic and racist wall,” Omar tweeted Wednesday.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.,  criticized the Biden administration's reported plan to fill in "gaps" of the border wall.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told Immigration and Customs Enforcement staffers last week that the Biden administration is open to filling “gaps” in the wall lining the border that has seen a recent surge of migrants, according to a Washington Times report.

Mayorkas made the comments while discussing plans submitted by the Customs and Border Protection pertaining to the wall.

The Biden administration has said that it still opposes the border wall ideologically.

“There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented and the acting commissioner of CBP presented to me,” Mayorkas said in the meeting, the report said.

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that the administration continues to oppose the wall ideologically, and that any possible further construction would only be undertaken out of a legal obligation due to funding already having been allocated prior to the Biden presidency.
