Biden’s demand that a border be built around his own Delaware beach mansion on your dime is offensive

Looking at the crisis management of President Joe Biden’s administration, one might find that the solutions often hinge more upon reframing the narrative than actually addressing the issue. While readily apparent with matters like recession and inflation, updates on federal “responsibility for border security” prove equally misleading when considering what borders are being focused on.

Biden has been known for absconding to his Rehoboth Beach, Delaware home on weekends and for extended getaways since his inauguration. Lesser known have been some of the added costs that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has accrued to protect the president on this vacations and, according to, they include nearly half a million dollars for a fence.

An initial contract to secure the border around Biden’s beach house had been awarded to the Delaware-based company Turnstone Holding LLC from DHS in September 2021 for the amount of $456,548. However, the project which was scheduled to be completed on Dec. 31, 2021, looks to be missing the mark by close to a year and a half with a new expected “potential end date” of June 6, 2023 along with additional costs.

On Nov. 30, 2021, $6,844 was added to the project to utilize three gravel pads measuring six feet by six inches and crane services before another $26,933 was tacked on June 8, 2022 “TO ADD FUNDS TO CURRENT PROJECT,” for “ADDITIONAL WORK (NEW AGREEMENT, JUSTIFICATION REQUIRED)” according to the provided description.

These sums raised the current total cost of the as yet incomplete project to $490,324, and as expected, there was vocal criticism over the focus on protecting Biden’s vacation spot seemingly ahead of securing the U.S.-Mexico border.

Republicans from the House Judiciary committee posted, “Joe Biden builds a wall at his house for protection. But won’t build a wall at the southern border to protect you.”

Likewise, committee member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) wrote Friday, “So walls work at Joe Biden’s beach house, but not the southern border?”

These criticisms are especially timely considering the captured video from earlier in the week where Border Patrol agents were witnessed unlocking a gate that had been sealed by members of the Texas National Guard to allow immigrants to illegally enter the United States.

As was reported by Fox News’s Bill Melugin, “This was the moment Border Patrol arrived with the key and let the migrants in. The landowner allows both TX DPS/National Guard and Border Patrol to work here. The gate has always been left open in the past. TX is now closing it, & migrants have to wait for BP to be let in.”

Similarly, Arizona has been struggling to deal with the border crisis in lieu of Biden’s failure to tackle the problem, leading Gov. Doug Ducey (R) to create a makeshift border wall out of shipping containers. While his effort had been mocked as a “pointless effort” because the open section of the border was not a main avenue for immigrants, Ducey’s communications director CJ Karamargin pointed to the toppling of some of those containers as proof to the contrary.

“If this didn’t matter, if this barrier that we are erecting was irrelevant, or somehow misplaced, then why would someone make the effort to topple over nearly 18,000 pounds of shipping container?” Karamargin asked. “It just doesn’t make sense on its face.”

The communications director further told the New York Post that, like the fencing around Biden’s beach house and opening the gates for immigrants, the areas of the border they have been securing were geared toward the safety of the border crossers, not the American people.

“Let’s not forget the main responsibility for border security is the federal government. And they are–they have announced recently that they will be filling these gaps,” he said. “They focus on these gaps that are in the areas that are either rocky or mountainous and they focus on those.”

Similar concerns over security focuses were leveled when it was revealed that the Secret Service detail for Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was spending around $30,o00 per month to rent a property adjacent to Hunter’s Malibu, California residence. The president was also reportedly charging his protection detail $2,200 per month to stay on his property in Delaware.

Fox News Digital reached out to the U.S. Secret Service for comment on the project and was told, “Due to the need to maintain operational security, the U.S. Secret Service does not comment on the means, methods or resources used to conduct our protective operations.”
