Trump administration now officially requesting bids to build border wall

by Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times  |  published on March 19, 2017

Border WallPresident Trump’s new border wall is supposed to be 30 feet high and should look imposing to potential illegal immigrants, Homeland Security officials said in documents Friday that officially requested the first bids to begin building the barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border.

But U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency overseeing the project, hasn’t yet decided on whether it will be concrete or some other type of construction, instead soliciting bids for various prototypes.

“The wall design shall be physically imposing in height,” CBP officials said in contracting documents.

They said their goal is a 30-foot barrier, and they would outright reject any plans that didn’t at least run 18 feet high. The wall must also run at least six feet underground to stop anyone easily tunneling underneath it.

    WE HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME. BUILDING THE WALL WILL HELP KEEP MORE OUT. GREAT.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    Put a two or three foot long flange at the top angle up about 315 degrees facing Mexico. They won’t be able to reach over it and with the back side smooth a hook can’t get a grip.

      Grease it with pig lard , that will keep the Muslims from trying to climb it.

      Don’t forget about the tunnels that already exist. I say fill them half full of water with cotton mouth vipers

    For Democrats to join Republicans to fund the wall there must be a ladder attached to the wall up and down the wall every 1000 feet with cage to protect all illegal that climb. That have two good reason for that, first its still lets them cross and second it will allow them to say in 2018 and 2020 that the wall was a waste of money as it did not stop anyone.

    I’d go 50′ high and 10′ underground just to really detract from making it easy on them. 30′ and all you need is a good telescoping ladder.

    Promises made…Promises kept!
    The Wall must be Climb Proof…If not it will be a waste!

  • American Me

    Build it HIGH and straight up and down with no hand holds or foot holds like the existing fence has.Make it near impossible to climb or hook a rope over the top.Illegal immigration must stop and as many as possible must be deported.They come here to live off hard working Americans and they are sucking the life out of our countrySend them back and don’t take NO for an answer from their home country.

  • McFerguson
