Biden's plan to continue building Trump’s wall criticized
U.S. Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar said President Joe Biden’s plan to continue the construction of Donald Trump’s wall on the Mexico border was "shameful and unacceptable".
In the strongest criticism yet of the president’s immigration policies among fellow squad members, Omar made the comment following reports Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas may green-light construction to plug "gaps" in the current wall.
"It’s shameful and unacceptable for @POTUS to continue the construction of Trump’s xenophobic and racist wall," she said in a tweet.
The Department of Homeland Security is planning to resume some construction along the wall in order to plug "gaps" in it, the Washington Times reported this week.
Biden had previously pledged not to build "another foot of wall," during his presidency.
