It’s Here: Border Wall Prototype Construction Begins

It’s Here: Border Wall Prototype Construction Begins

Photos show wall construction is well underway

Photos released on the Customs and Border Protection Twitter account Wednesday show various construction projects are underway since last Tuesday in Southern California near Tijuana, Mexico.

The Trump administration selected six companies last month to craft eight wall prototypes, four of which will be built using concrete, and four others which will be constructed with “alternate or ‘other materials.’”

“Caddell Construction Company, Fisher Sand & Gravel Company, Texas Sterling Construction Company, and W.G. Yates and Sons Construction Company will each receive up to $300 million to build a solid concrete wall prototype,” reports the Washington Examiner.

The structures will reach 18 to 30 feet high and will likely “evolve to meet the US Border Patrol’s requirements,” according to a CBP memo.

Completion of wall prototype construction is expected within approximately 30 days of the Notice to Proceed http://bit.ly/2hxHfCL

The House Appropriations Committee approved $1.6 billion to be allocated towards wall construction back in July, and the House Homeland Security Committee also approved a $10 billion border security bill Wednesday.

The ambitious undertaking has continued unabated despite numerous objections.

Earlier this month California’s attorney general announced he would pursue a lawsuit claiming the wall infringes on the state’s “natural resources, economic interests, procedural rights and sovereignty from violations of the United States Constitution.”

City leaders in Brownsville, Texas, in August also passed a resolution opposing the construction of the wall.

The agency expects prototypes will be completed within 30 days.

Trump: Senate Intel Committee Should Investigate ‘Fake News Media’

Trump: Senate Intel Committee Should Investigate ‘Fake News Media’

Instead of focusing on Russia

President Trump took to Twitter early Thursday to ask why the Senate isn’t focusing on hearings concerning fake news put out by mainstream media networks, rather than a dead end investigation into Russian links to the election.

Why Isn’t the Senate Intel Committee looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country to see why so much of our news is just made up-FAKE!

 

Trump’s comments come following a press conference yesterday held by Senate Intelligence Committee leaders Richard Burr and Mark Warner, during which they announced that the probe into Russian interference and potential collusion is still ongoing.

The two senators also suggested that Russian intelligence will likely try to interfere with American politics again in the future.

The President also addressed the media’s latest attempt to smear his position, regarding reports about Trump’s his relationship with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Rex Tillerson never threatened to resign. This is Fake News put out by @NBCNews. Low news and reporting standards. No verification from me.

 
While the President bemoaned more fake news, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo had a complete meltdown on air when OMB Director Mick Mulvaney said that CNN was spreading false information regarding Trump’s response to the hurricane in Puerto Rico: 

Mulvaney noted that CNN and others are deliberately focusing on “bad stuff” in Puerto Rico rather than any efforts by the Trump administration to help the people in need there.

“That’s not what you do in a situation like this!” Cuomo said. “You report the reality! That’s not being done to you, to the president, Mick, to embarrass you… Whatever’s being done is not enough and if you don’t know that now you’re never gonna know it.”

“When you say some of this reporting is fake… It’s disingenuous and it’s not true,” an animated Cuomo urged. “Don’t call it fake because it’s not fake.
