People who work in oil and gas are not the only ones immediately losing their jobs under Joe Biden.
Since taking office barely two weeks ago, Biden has already shut down production of the southern border wall, which means that all of the people who were working on that are now also out of work.
A reporter named Julio Rosas recently spoke to some of them.
He writes at Townhall:
They ‘Don’t Give a Sh*t About Us’: The Early Effects of Joe Biden Halting Border Wall Construction
Biden signed the executive order to fulfill his campaign promise of stopping the construction of the new border wall system that was being implemented by former President Donald Trump’s administration. While some areas on the southwest border saw a whole new wall being put in place where none existed before, the new wall system also replaced old barriers that were laughably easy to get over, such as old fencing in the El Paso Sector.
The construction crew was working hard to demobilize and bring their equipment, such as excavators and bulldozers, out of the area as soon as possible in order to comply with the executive order. I was told the crew was about two months away from completing the project they had been working on, which was now over with the quick signing of a pen…
I asked how everyone else on his crew, about 20 people, felt about the cancelation of their project.
“F*cked, to be honest with you,” he replied. “A lot of these guys, they don’t have nothing” because this was the only prospect that was employing them during these rough economic times. “A lot of people don’t know what else they’re going to do.”
“If you want my personal opinion, [the wall] was actually a good thing. You talk to a lot of locals in town and everything” and they were appreciative of what we were doing, the driver added, “We feel like our country really don’t give a sh*t about us.”
These are Americans who are losing their jobs because Democrats don’t care about border security. It’s outrageous.
I went to the US-Mexican border to see construction crews demobilizing after Biden paused the building of the new wall system.
I asked how the crew, now jobless, felt.
"Fucked…" one replied. "A lot of people don't know what else they're going to do."https://t.co/08KMnWOQrZ

Border wall construction stopped in New Mexico with 1/2 a mile left to go! The material to finish it is sitting there bought and paid for, what a waste. @rangerholton broke this story for #Stinchfield on @newsmax pic.twitter.com/okmgjsclvy

At the same time, there are border walls going up all over DC.
Walls for me but not for thee.
