Top news right now: President Biden’s nominee for ambassador to Jordan, Yael Lempert, expressed her full support for American taxpayers funding border security measures in Jordan, including a request for $110 million in taxpayer money. Lempert’s support for using U.S. taxpayer dollars to fund border security initiatives in Jordan is particularly alarming given the current crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, where hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are expected to cross every month once the Biden administration ends the public health authority known as Title 42. This move by the Biden administration to prioritize Middle Eastern security measures over American border security is not new. In 2019, American taxpayers were forced to fund millions in border security measures in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and the Middle East.
“Why would we expect anything different from this administration?”
