Biden Administration Auctions Off Parts of Border Wall So It Won’t Be Completed

The Biden administration is allegedly liquidating millions of dollars in border wall materials, amid Republican efforts to legislate its completion.

Steel “square structural tubes” seen in an Arizona storage facility were put up for sale on GovPlanet, a digital auction platform managed by Canadian company Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers. These 28-foot hollow beams are “excess border wall materials that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers turned over to the DLA for disposition and are now for sale,” the Department of Defense’s logistics agency confirmed to the Daily Upside and subsequently the New York Post.

GovPlanet, known for military surplus sales, has disposed of 81 such lots, garnering around $2 million, as stated by the Post.

Intended for the border wall’s 30-foot panels, these beams were auctioned in five batches at an average of $212 each, accumulating $154,200 for 729 beams. An additional 13 “square structural tubes” are set for auction on Aug. 23 and Aug. 30, as indicated on GovPlanet’s website.
