Chad Pergram at Fox News tweets: "Biden letter to Congress: I have determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border was unwarranted. I have also announced that it shall be the policy of my Administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall, and that I am directing a careful review of all resources appropriated or redirected to that end."

  • Border wall between the US and Mexico had been one of the most controversial policies of President Trump's tenure, and ending its construction one of Biden's first promises.
  • The brake-neck change in policy, from an administration with extremely strict immigration laws to one that operates an open-door immigration policy, may serve to entrench already sizeable political differences in Washington, D.C. even further and provide fuel to pro-Trump politicians and activists.
