Democrats constantly insist they aren’t for open borders.
Yet Joe Biden is now saying that if he wins the election in November, he will immediately halt construction of the southern border wall.
So which is it, Democrats?
The Hill reports:
Biden says he would stop border wall construction as president
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Wednesday that he would stop the construction of the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico if elected president, which would put an end to one of President Trump’s key campaign promises.
“There will not be another foot of wall constructed in my administration,” the former vice president said in an interview during the virtual annual conference of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
“I’m gonna make sure that we have border protection, but it’s going to be based on making sure that we use high-tech capacity to deal with it and at the ports of entry — that’s where all the bad stuff is at,” Biden added.
NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro asked the candidate what he would do about the “land confiscations,” in which the federal government seizes land to build border protection, to which Biden responded, “End it.”
Here’s an important reminder:
"There will not be another foot of wall constructed in my administration"
Which is strange—considering he voted to build 700 miles of wall along the Southern Border in 2006

This is also an important point:
At a time when the pandemic is running rampant throughout the world, strong enforced borders are more important than ever. Biden has said that if he wins he will stop construction of the Border wall and that will be the end of safety for us here in El Paso and beyond.#VoteTrump

Biden doesn’t care about security.
He only cares about winning.
