Trump’s Border Wall Behind Schedule

in Elections

The Trump administration’s self-imposed deadline to start building prototypes for the border wall has passed—and so far, no contracts have been awarded.

According to documents obtained by the San Diego Union Tribune: 

Homeland Security had planned to begin construction on four to eight 30-foot tall prototypes Thursday near Otay Mesa. The location was still a dusty field this week, and Customs and Border Protection, responding to a Freedom of Information Act request from the San Diego Union-Tribune, said no contracts have been awarded.

Border Protection spokesman Rick Pauza confirmed Friday that bids are still being reviewed but that prototype designs “will be selected for construction in Summer 2017.

The border wall was the signature promise of Trump’s campaign and the most visible initiative of his presidency, yet has been allowed to fall behind schedule.

Just this past week, Breitbart News reported that “President Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday about the high death toll in Mexico because of the drug cartels operating in that country, vowing to ‘build the wall.’”

Despite delays, the president has continued to offer new ideas, such as a solar panel skin to cut down on costs and produce more green energy. (Not that California needs anymore solar energy — its energy grid is unable to process the solar power online now, and frequently has to “dump” energy, paying neighboring states like Arizona to take it.)

According to The Hill, “Trump reaffirmed his pledge to build the wall during a campaign rally in Iowa this week, also floating the idea of a ‘solar wall’ that would ‘pay for itself.’ He hopes to complete construction by the end of his first term.”

Cost is likely to be another potential delaying factor.

One of Trump’s tech supporters, virtual reality pioneer and Oculus Rift founder Palmer Luckey, is pushing an idea that is gaining traction and could help keep costs down.

Luckey’s company, according to a CNBC report, is “developing surveillance technology that could be deployed on borders between countries and around military bases.”

Whatever prototype the Trump Administration approves is sure to generate a tremendous amount of opposition from the open borders lobby, currently working overtime to undermine any type of wall securing the southern border with Mexico.

      • alan jenkins

        You are correct in saying most Americans are immigrates but when they came to this country what did Roosevelt tell them?

    • The Redman

    • The Redman

      white-folks will ruin Mexico like they have america. hahahhaahhahahahahaha

  • larry harvey

    The border wall would costs billions. It is a total waste of money. Anyone could go over it with a ladder or tunnel under it. Former President Reagan talk about knocking down walls. We should be building bridges not walls.

    • The Redman

      U tell em Harvey. dem hater white-folks R some of the worst terrorist in the world. but, yet, they fly all over the place and sit up show, huh.

    • alan jenkins

      I guess u don’t care about ur job or ssi or tax dollars

      • larry harvey

        Alan Jenkins–The danger to jobs is not from immigration but from technology and robotization. As to tax dollars, the building of the wall would waste billions of such dollars. SSI requirements preclude the eligibility of undocumented persons.

    • alan jenkins

      Then we must change the way we handle giving money out to all who enter the states we didn’t do that back then and now it’s our money we worked for and need to retire on that is stealing

  • alan jenkins

    Because most are not behind him when he needs it
