Kentucky Rep. James Comer (R) has called on the Biden administration to finish building the southern border wall. In a video released on Friday, Comer argued Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have not taken the border crisis seriously.

He also noted the unused building material for the wall has already been paid for by Congress and insisted construction must be finished. Comer slammed Harris for the influx in illegal immigrants since Biden has taken office, as well as her absence at the southern border.

“We’ve been hearing from landowners and local residents all day about the crime, the human trafficking, the drugs that’s taken place across the border, yet Joe Biden on his first day in office halted construction of the wall,” he explained. “…The contractors have already been awarded. Let’s get back to building the wall.”

Comer also touched on the rising inflation rate by blaming the issue on excessive spending and encouraged Americans to prosper through the dignity of work.
