GOP Senator Introduces Bill To Force Biden To Restart Border Wall

  • Sen. Ted Budd, R-N.C., will introduce a bill Tuesday to restart construction of the wall at the southern border, removing obstacles that are currently obstructing the process and unlocking $2.1 billion in unspent wall funding.
  • Dubbed the Build the Wall Now Act, the legislation is the first measure to be introduced by Budd since he took office in January and aims to remove “legal impediments” preventing border wall construction.
  • 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.
