Top of the Fold

  • On second thought… Majority of voters now want to finish Trump’s wall as crisis intensifies (Washington Times)

“The Senate Opportunity Fund’s polling now shows 38% opposed and 53% in support of the wall. Much of the change appears to be among those on the left. The Chicago Council poll showed 85% of Democrats opposed to the wall, but the Senate Opportunity Fund found 63% of liberals opposed. On Capitol Hill, some senators who were wary of Mr. Trump’s wall-building plans now say completing the barrier should be part of any border strategy Mr. Biden pursues as he tries to control the surge.”

  • President Biden under fire for border wall cash freeze (Politico)

“On his first day in office, Biden hit pause on billions of dollars set to be spent on his predecessor’s long-touted barrier between the U.S. and Mexico while his administration figured out next steps for the money. Now the Government Accountability Office is launching a review to determine whether the new president broke the law by freezing the money in violation of budget rules designed to keep Congress in control of the cash flow, the federal watchdog confirmed this week.”
