Default Trump’s border wall models take shape in San Diego

SAN DIEGO — The last two of eight prototypes for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall took shape Thursday at a construction site in San Diego.

The prototypes form a tightly packed row of imposing concrete and metal panels, including one with sharp metal edges on top. Another has a surface resembling an expensive brick driveway.
Companies have until Oct. 26 to finish the models but Border Patrol spokesman Theron Francisco said the last two came into profile, with crews installing a corrugated metal surface on the eighth model on a dirt lot just a few steps from homes in Tijuana, Mexico.
As the crews worked, three men and two women from Nepal, ages 19 to 30, jumped a short rusted fence from Tijuana into the construction site and were immediately stopped by agents on horseback.
Francisco said there have been four or five other illegal crossing attempts at the site since work began Sept. 26.

The models, which cost the government up to $500,000 each, were spaced 30 feet (9.1 meters) apart. Slopes, thickness and curves vary. One has two shades of blue with white trim. The others are gray, tan or brown — in sync with the desert.
Bidding guidelines call for the prototypes to stand between 18 and 30 feet (5.5 and 9.1 meters) high and be able to withstand at least an hour of punishment from a sledgehammer, pickaxe, torch, chisel or battery-operated tools.
Features also should prevent the use of climbing aids such as grappling hooks, and the segments must be “aesthetically pleasing” when viewed from the U.S. side.
The administration hasn’t said how many winners it will pick or whether Trump will weigh in himself.
There is currently 654 miles (1,052 kilometers) of single-layer fence on the 1,954-mile (3,143-kilometer) border, plus 51 miles (82 kilometers) of double- and triple-layer fence.
“I’m sure they will engage in a lot of tests against these structures to see how they function with different challenges,” U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, said Tuesday after touring the construction site.
Trump has asked Congress for $1.6 billion to replace 14 miles of wall (22.4 kilometers) in San Diego and build 60 miles (96 kilometers) in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, the busiest corridor for illegal crossings.
Here’s a rundown of companies building prototypes, their headquarters and value of their contract. Two are making one concrete prototype and another using other materials.
CADELL CONSTRUCTION CO., Montgomery, Alabama. ($344,000 for concrete wall, $320,000 for other wall)
Its tan concrete wall is thick at the bottom and narrows considerably toward the pointed top. The other, also tan, has metal poles on the bottom, a metal plate in the middle, and concrete block on top.

The general construction company founded in 1983 says its projects include U.S. embassies in Beijing and Kabul, Afghanistan, terminals at Houston’s George Bush International Airport and renovations to the Denver Mint.
W.G. YATES & SONS CONSTRUCTION CO., Philadelphia, Mississippi. ($453,548 for concrete wall, $458,103 for other wall)
Its models are a darker brown than other prototypes and topped by round beams. Its concrete panel has a plain face; its metal one has a corrugated surface.
The 53-year-old company has worked in a wide range of projects, including a Toyota plant in Blue Springs, Mississippi, a county jail in Olmito, Texas, a marine terminal in Jacksonville, Florida, and a power plant near Panama City, Florida.
___
Two companies are building concrete walls.
FISHER SAND & GRAVEL CO., Tempe, Arizona. ($365,000 contract)
It’s the only prototype to be built entirely on site — as opposed to being hauled in. Its tan surface gradually narrows toward the top, like a long triangle.
Part of conglomerate Fisher Industries, the company produces sand, gravel and other products for roads, dams and large public works projects. The company is active is 12 western states.
TEXAS STERLING CONSTRUCTION CO., Houston. ($470,000 contract)
The gray surface of the U.S. side is stamped with patterns of different-sized bricks, like a driveway or sidewalk at an upscale home. There is a steel plate on top with prongs that feature at three metal spikes, resembling an agave plant.

Parent company Sterling Construction Co., founded in 1991, specializes in water and transportation projects, including highways, bridges, ports, light rail, wastewater and storm drainage systems. It is active in Utah, Texas, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, California and Hawaii.
___
Two companies were selected to build walls made of materials other than concrete.
KWR CONSTRUCTION INC., Sierra Vista, Arizona. ($486,411 contract)
Its gray metal columns are topped with a large metal plate. The small, Hispanic-owned company counts the Homeland Security, Defense and Interior departments among its largest customers.
ELTA NORTH AMERICA INC., Annapolis Junction, Maryland. ($406,319 contract)
Its solid metal wall features six light blue squares with white trim on the bottom third, topped by dark blue beams and metal plates.
ELTA is a large Israeli defense contractor owned by state-run Israel Aerospace Industries. The company, which makes radar and other gear, opened its new U.S. headquarters in Maryland in May.

its something that he could always point to and say "I built that!" which seems to be his most prized thing in the world. its why he puts his name on everything like a dog that 'owns' every fire hydrant and tree along their daily walking route.


(while the above is true, its pretty obvious so this comment was mostly an excuse to post the gif lol)

It sucks to spend any money even starting this project but its going to be satisfying watching it fail (just like his muslim bans).

Cards Against Humanity buys land along Mexican border to block wall



(AP Photo/Gregory Bull)
(WCMH) – For its latest holiday stunt, game maker Cards Against Humanity says it has purchased land along the US-Mexico border in an attempt to delay the border wall.
On the website cardsagainsthumanitysavesamerica.com, the company says:
Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.
For its holiday promotion, the company wants people to send them $15 in exchange for six surprises in December.
For day one, recipients will receive an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of their promise to fight the wall, and some new cards.


Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Cards Against Humanity has a history of performing strange holiday and Black Friday stunts. In 2015, the company asked people to send them $5 in exchange for nothing in return. The company raised more than $70,000.
In 2016, the company spent $100,573 digging a huge hole in Illinois.

What's happening here?
Cards Against Humanity is digging a holiday hole.

Is this real?
Unfortunately it is.

Where is the hole?

America. And in our hearts.

Is there some sort of deeper meaning or purpose to the hole?
No.

What do I get for contributing money to the hole?
A deeper hole. What else are you going to buy, an iPod?

Why aren't you giving all this money to charity?
Why aren't YOU giving all this money to charity? It's your money.

Is the hole bad for the environment?
No, this was just a bunch of empty land. Now there's a hole there. That's life.

How am I supposed to feel about this?
You're supposed to think it's funny. You might not get it for a while, but some time next year you'll chuckle quietly to yourself and remember all this business about the hole.

How deep can you make this sucker?

Great question. As long as you keep spending, we'll keep digging. We'll find out together how deep this thing goes.

What if you dig so deep you hit hot magma?

At least then we'd feel something.

pretty sure you're going to have to wait just as long as the impeachment folks if not longer for meaningful construction.

Like any liberal action, it does nothing to affect the problem, it just allows people to feel better by spending money.

The good thing about this is that it's voluntary; unlike most of their policies that are voted on by people to take money from hard working people just to make those who voted for the policy to feel better.

Yep. Lawyers win; taxpayers lose. In the end, the US still gets the wall.

I don't see funding for the wall yet, and a lot of republicans oppose it. I don't see any guarantee that we're getting the wall, guys.

Buying that land won't stop a thing. I would laugh my ass off if the wall was built around the property and left it on the Mexico side.

Can someone please explain to me how this wall is a good idea? I feel like Trump's rhetoric about deporting everyone has been good enough at scaring more from coming in. Much more of an impact than a stupid fucking wall. Keeping illegals out is actually one thing I agree with Trump on. I just don't like his methods. Just enforce our laws, punish companies for hiring illegals and let it be know that the open door is now closed. I don't like the fact that people that have been here for decades and have been good citizens are getting kicked out though. Trump just wants a wall for his ego. Another "great" structure he can put his name on. It amazes me how our country is the only one that gets shit on and called racist for wanting to enforce our borders. No one is entitled to come here for free. You can't even get into Canada to visit if you have a DUI. The double standard is insane to me.
