The Biden administration is quietly selling off parts of Donald Trump's border wall to try to thwart Republicans who want to force it to be extended.
A website called GovPlanet, which offers online auctions for military surplus, listed hundreds of unused parts of the southern barrier in recent months.
Since April 81 steel square structural tubes – which would have been used within the wall's 30ft panels – have been sold for a profit of $2million.
On Tuesday officials sold over 700 28ft hollow beams in five separate lots for $212 each. Over a dozen are also up for grabs at auctions over the next two Tuesdays.
