This is one border barrier that US President Joe Biden doesn’t seem to mind spending money on.

Biden is having a $456,548 secuity fence built around his Delaware beach home but still refuses to finish Trump’s border wall as illegal migration reaches a record high since start of year

Biden’s Delaware summer house, is a property that he has visited only twice since he became president.

1.7 million migrants have been apprehended so far this year, the highest number of illegal crossings recorded since at least 1960 according to new figures just released.

The Mail Online reports: The president and first lady evening left Washington DC on Friday evening for their main family home, in Wilmington, Delaware.

The Bidens’ return frequently to their Wilmington home – a 6,850 square feet property which was built on a four acre plot that he bought in 1996 for $350,000.

Of the first 29 weekends of his presidency, Biden spent just six at the White House, according to an NPR analysis in August.

He was in Wilmington for 14 of those weekends, and Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, for eight.

By contrast, he has been at his Rehoboth Beach holiday home, 100 miles from Wilmington, only twice since becoming president: once in June, to celebrate Jill’s 70th birthday, and again in September.

While Joe Biden refuses to secure America’s southern border, he is building walls around his vacation home,’ said Fox News host Jesse Watters, on Friday evening.

‘Maybe walls do work after all.’

Border figures show that 192,001 migrants were apprehended in September, down from nearly 210,000 in August and nearly 214,000 in July. Friday’s figures bring the total number of apprehensions this year up to 1,734,686.

Of the 192,00 migrants who tried to cross the border illegally in September, 59 per cent were single adults. 

More than 53 per cent of those who arrived were processed for expulsion under Title 42, the CDC’s coronavirus public health order, according to Customs and Border Patrol.  

Encounters of unaccompanied children decreased 24 per cent, with 14,358 encounters in September compared with 18,806 in August. 

In September, the average number of unaccompanied children in CBP custody was 772 per day, compared with an average of 1,435 per day in August, according to the agency. 

Only 27 per cent percent of family units encountered at the southern border were expelled under Title 42, while 75 per cent of single adults were. 

Just this month, the Biden Administration announced that they are cancelling the few remaining border wall contracts in the Laredo and Rio Grande Valley sectors. 

Biden has continued to end contracts and shut down construction of Trump’s border wall since he became president. One of this first actions as president was to halt construction to review the project and its funding. 

But while construction of the border is being shut down, the Bidens’ summer house is now being upgraded, at the cost of almost half a million dollars. 

The contract states that construction on the Biden’s summer house began on September 21, and should be completed by December 31.
