Construction of the new border wall came to a halt in early 2021 on New Mexico's southern border after an executive order was set in place by President Biden. Pictured is heavy machinery grading a road next to a newly installed border wall in Sunland Park, New Mexico.

“To put it bluntly: Republicans chose to help Vladimir Putin in Ukraine, destabilize the Middle East, and stoke chaos and dysfunction at our southern border. All to preserve their political talking point,” Heinrich said in a statement Wednesday.

“Republicans spectacularly failed to protect the American people and made our world more dangerous. The stakes are too high to let this failure to deliver be the final word.”
