Sometimes you have to risk it all and leave it all on the table if you want something in reward.
Trump in his familiar fashion threatened to shut down the government if his demands are not completed.
President Trump desires from the government to start the construction of the wall as soon as possible.
Just a few days after Donald Trump’s warning to shut down the administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection made a public announcement on Thursday that four companies will start to construct prototypes of the wall.
It turns out, all four companies introduced four different prototypes of concrete walls that are supposed to separate the US and Mexico. It seems Trump’s government won’t rush things and they will make a careful decision. They are gonna choose the design of the wall after they examine and exhaust all options. A proper evaluation is needed. According to NBC, the prototypes are 30 feet in length and up to 30 feet in height. The construction of the wall will begin shortly in a few weeks and the revision process will last between 30 to 60 days max.
As you can see on the picture above, it displays a border limitation rendering of what they see as an “optimum border enforcement area” between America and notorious Mexico.
The cement part of the wall (E) would be placed on the U.S.-facing side of an electronically observed zone and another concrete wall (B) standing towards the Mexico side will be translucent fairly enough for police officials to see what is going on. The area designated for monitoring everything that happens between the two walls will be approximately 150 feet wide and will inform guards if uninvited guests breached in the danger zone.
Ronald Vitiello, working deputy agent of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said in an interview with NBC News: “This is the first new initiative that adds to our bigger plans.” Ronald Vitiello continued, “Testing will look at things like the aesthetics of it, how penetrable they are, how resistant they are to tampering and then scaling or anti-climbing.”
The four corporations that are currently working on the prototypes of the wall are Fisher Industries of Tempe, Arizona, Texas Sterling Construction Co., Caddell Construction of Montgomery, Alabama, and W.G. Yates & Sons Construction located in Philadelphia.
Individually every contract is worth more than $400,000 and covered by the 2017 government budget.
