On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox Information Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) reacted to the Biden administration claiming that it needed to construct a part of a border wall as a result of Congress allotted the cash by stating that the excuse is nonsense as a result of “They’ve left that cash sitting there for the whole administration thus far, and so they’ve had border wall materials sitting on the bottom for 3 years.”
Patrick mentioned, “So, after about 8 million folks, tons of from the fear watchlist, and hundreds of criminals have already crossed the border, it’s about rattling time they do one thing, even when they wish to fake they don’t wish to do it. And this concept, Laura, that, effectively, we are able to’t effectively let the cash [lay] there, we’ve to comply with the rule of regulation. Everyone knows, as you mentioned, it’s a complete fraud. It’s a complete lie. They’ve left that cash sitting there for the whole administration thus far, and so they’ve had border wall materials sitting on the bottom for 3 years. … No, the one cause they’re doing that is they know they’re in serious trouble in 2024 on how they’ve mishandled the border and the way it’s impacting this nation and voters.”
Former Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) added to Patrick’s level by asking, “If that is what they should do to be authorized at this time, had been they violating the regulation yesterday or final month? I might say that is their job since they got here into workplace, however instantly, there’s some particular factor about this one date in October ’23? Individuals are good sufficient to see proper by it.”
Later, Patrick acknowledged that he’s skeptical that a lot wall will really be constructed.
