Speaker Ryan Posts Video of Visit to Southern Border:
‘It’s Time for the Wall’

PENNY STARR - 1 Aug 2017


" ... we’re going to get this done this week.”

In a 30-second video of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (D-WI) visit to the southern border of the United States posted online on Tuesday, Ryan said that border patrol agents “need more tools … to do their jobs effectively” and vows to “get this done this week.”

But the name of the video reads like a Trump campaign slogan: “It’s Time for the Wall” and notes that there are 1,954 miles of southern border between the United States and Mexico.

Quote
“It’s time for The Wall,” the text accompanying the video reads. “That’s why the House voted to fully fund the Trump administration’s request to build it.”

Democrats’ Choice:
Block Pentagon Spending or Accept Border Wall

NEIL MUNRO - 30 Aug 2017

Democrats will have to block the Pentagon’s 2018 budget in September if they want to stop
President Donald Trump’s plan to extend the nation’s border walls in 2018, say immigration reformers.


The border-wall funds were included in the Pentagon’s 2018 budget by a House vote on July 27, leaving the 48 Senate Democrats as the only barrier to the construction of roughly 60 additional miles of walls and fencing.

“It puts them in the difficult position of voting against national defense in order to stop the improvement of the border wall … which is national defense,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “It is bad for them on both sides of the message — not only do they not want to protect the border, they are also willing to sacrifice soldiers in the field to not protect the borders,” he added.

“It seems like [House Speaker Paul] Ryan does deserve some credit — if he follows through… [but] we have to see what [GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell does,” said Krikorian.

“It will be difficult for [Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer] to explain why he is willing to hold up the defense budget hostage,” said Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

Quote
Many polls show that Americans are very generous, they do welcome individual immigrants, and they do want to like the idea of immigration. But the polls also show that most Americans are increasingly worried that large-scale legal immigration will change their country and disadvantage themselves and their children. Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” policies are also extremely popular, including among Democratic-leaning voters.

Trump administration picks companies to build border wall prototypes
GENEVA SANDS - Sep 1, 2017

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Thursday that four vendors have been selected to design and build prototypes for the proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall, which remains a top priority of the Trump administration.

The four companies awarded contracts are: Caddell Construction Co., Fisher Sand & Gravel Co., Texas Sterling Construction Co. and W. G. Yates & Sons Construction Company.

Each of the selected companies has been tasked with building one wall prototype made of "reinforced concrete" along the border in San Diego. Next week, CBP will decide on up to four additional vendors that will be selected to build wall prototypes made of non-concrete materials.



.... "These prototypes, which are intended to deter illegal crossings, will help us refine the design standards and security requirements that will meet the needs of U.S Border Patrol," said acting Deputy Commissioner Ron Vitiello during a press briefing.

The prototypes will be designed to be 30 feet long and up to 30 feet high, and will be in close proximity to each other. Testing will examine aesthetics, as well as the breaching and scaling potential.

Once the prototypes are built, there will be a 30 to 60 days evaluation period.

"We're going to do this as quickly as possible," Vitiello said.

Quote
The San Diego sector was chosen as the prototype location because of access to the border land, the conditions that allow for CBP to evaluate the structures as part of the larger infrastructure system and the operational importance of the region.

Trump border wall construction begins
Stephen Dinan - September 26, 2017

Homeland Security said it began construction Tuesday on the
prototypes for President Trump’s new border wall.


In a short notice, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said the building began in San Diego on eight prototypes, which had been awarded over the summer. Four of the prototypes are concrete walls, and four are non-concrete designs.

“We are committed to securing our border and that includes constructing
border walls,” said Ronald Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner at CBP.


The prototypes are designed to test out new approaches, materials, strategies and technology as Homeland Security pushes forward with Mr. Trump’s goal of a border wall. The designs are between 18 and 30 feet, and will be evaluated on how well they deter climbers, how well they withstand breach attempts and what sort of awareness they allow agents who patrol the border. The prototypes are expected to be finished within 30 days.

“Moving forward with the prototypes enables us to continue to incorporate all the tools necessary to secure our border,” Mr. Vitiello said. Agents — and Mr. Trump — say visibility through the wall is critical for knowing what’s going on in Mexico, helping agents avoid ambushes or other potential dangers, as well as spot migrants or smugglers preparing to try to cross.

Quote
About 354 miles of the 1,952-mile border are currently protected by some form of wall. Another 300 miles have vehicle barriers, which allow easy penetration by pedestrians or animals, but are designed to stop trucks and cars from barreling over the border.

House Committee Approves $10B for Border Wall
BOB PRICE - 4 Oct 2017

The House Homeland Security Committee approved a $10 billion funding package for President Donald Trump’s promised border wall construction. The bill could be attached to legislation being debated to replace President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

“We have been talking about border security for many years. Now that we finally have a partner in the White House who has prioritized this issue, it’s time for Congress to do its part and get the job done,” Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said in a written statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “I look forward to working with my colleagues in both chambers to get this bill to the President’s desk so we can finally provide the American people with the security they have long demanded and deserve.”

Quote
The provision funding the construction of the president’s promised border wall came as part of a border security spending proposal that will reimburse states for up to $35 million for their costs of using National Guard troops to supplement border security efforts in their state, The Hill reported. It also includes $5 billion to increase security at ports of entry.
