Among the issues raised in the event that the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, is confirmed to win the presidency of America, is the issue of the border wall between the United States and Mexico, which sparked a lot of controversy when the current President Donald Trump considered it one of his administration’s priorities after winning the 2016 elections.
Fox News stated that Biden, as soon as he becomes president, will fulfill his promise to stop work on building that huge wall.
The Biden campaign website stated that “the obsession with building the wall will do nothing in the face of security challenges while costing taxpayers billions of dollars.”
The website indicated that most of the smuggled goods enter “through the legitimate entry points.”
In January, construction of the wall was completed 100 miles (161 km), and it increased to nearly 400 miles (644 km) in length by October.
The Trump administration still has enough funding to complete construction of 450 miles (740 km) of the wall by the end of this year.
The distance of the border between America and Mexico is about 2000 miles, but Trump had stressed more than once that there is no need to build a wall covering all of it because of the presence of natural terrain and lakes that prevent the entry of immigrants through it.
Trump has requested $ 5.7 billion to finance the construction of the wall, in addition to the $ 1.7 billion already earmarked for new and alternative barriers.
