If you haven’t had a chance to watch the video below, I highly recommend it. It is the best 24 minutes you could invest in! I could have listened to him speak for days on this topic. WOW! That example blew away what I envisioned in my mind. I thought it would be just a Wall. However, you have a 30 foot Wall followed by 150 feet enforcement zone followed by another 30 foot Wall. That is incredible! There isn’t a single Mexican, or anyone else getting over that baby!
Cameras and everything else going at the same time. You aren’t digging your way underneath it. You aren’t tossing drugs over that 30 foot Wall followed by the 150 feet enforcement zone followed by another 30 foot Wall. If successful, the NY Mets will sign you to a contract!
I can’t begin to tell you how excited I felt after seeing it!
From the article linked above:
Four contractors have been granted agreements to construct concrete border wall prototypes:
Caddell Construction Co. (DE), LLC of Montgomery, AL
Fisher Sand & Gravel Co., DBA Fisher Industries of Tempe, AZ
Texas Sterling Construction Co. of Houston, TX
W.G. Yates & Sons Construction Company of Philadelphia, MS
The prototypes will feature characteristics such as reinforced concrete and heights between 18 and 30 feet. They have been “designed to deter illegal crossings in the area in which they are constructed,” according to a CBP press release.
“The concrete border wall prototypes will allow CBP to evaluate the potential for new wall and barrier designs that could complement the wall and barrier designs we have used along the border over the last several years,” according the a CBP release on wall prototype construction. “As the border security environment continues to evolve, CBP will continually refresh its own inventory of tools to meet that evolution.”
Construction of the prototypes is to be completed within 30 days of the order for the construction, which Vitiello indicated could come in the next couple of weeks. Prototypes are designed to be concrete, 30 feet long, and up to 30 feet high. They will be in close proximity to each other. There will be testing of aspects of the walls including aesthetics and anti-climb features. There will be 30-60 days of evaluation of the prototypes.
A CBP release referenced President Donald Trump’s executive order Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements, which required the Department of Homeland Security to “immediately plan, design and construct a physical wall along the southern border, using appropriate materials and technology to most effectively achieve complete operational control of the southern border.”
“The prototypes will inform future design standards, which will likely continue to evolve to meet the U.S. Border Patrol’s requirements,” according to the CBP release.
