Trump wants to build 30-foot-high wall at Mexican border

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Trump administration wants to build a 30-foot-high border wall that looks good from the north side and is difficult to climb or cut through, according to a pair of contract notices posted to a government website further detailing President Donald Trump's promise to build a "big, beautiful wall" at the Mexican border.

The notices were made public late Friday by Customs and Border Protection, the Homeland Security Department agency that will oversee the project and eventually patrol and maintain the wall. The proposals are due to the government by March 29.

One of the CBP contract requests calls for a solid concrete wall, while the other asks for proposals for a see-through structure. Both require the wall to sunk at least six feet into the ground and include 25- and 50-foot automated gates for pedestrians and vehicles. The proposed wall must also be built in a such a way that it would take at least an hour to cut through it with a "sledgehammer, car jack, pick axe, chisel, battery operated impact tools, battery operated cutting tools, Oxy/acetylene torch or other similar hand-held tools."

The government will award a contract based on 30-foot-wide sample walls that are to be built in San Diego.

Yeah. and the samples will be judged in sanctuary central, California! #Winning!

3. Could be done so much better and cheaper with drones, cameras, sensors, and more personnel

And... we don't even have to hire any more people. Just reassign some of the career trough-feeders to the southern border.

Problem solved for 1/8 of what it's going to cost to build a wall. When the wall doesn't get built it'll just be another "broken promise" for the Hard Left to dance around fires over, wearing some kind of loincloth or something.

5. I'm reminded of Lewis Black



It's interesting when Republicans do the right thing (major public works infrastructure projects) out of malice and spite.

It's time to launch a global war on people who drive dirty cars, those lazy fucks! We'll install pipes to bring clean water to their houses to make them clean up their acts. That'll teach 'em!
