The Biden order says,”Like every nation, the United States has a right and a duty to secure its borders and protect its people against threats.”
“But building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border is not a serious policy solution.”
“It is a waste of money that diverts attention from genuine threats to our homeland security.”
