Its happening, Pentagon announces awarding $1 billion dollars to fund president Trump’s 57 miles border wall

The Pentagon announced Tuesday it had awarded nearly $1 billion in contracts to build President Trump’s border wall, with the construction set to end in October 2020.

 

Texas-based company SLSCO Ltd. was granted a $789 million contract for construction in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, which falls within the El Paso sector of the border. The Army Corps of Engineers also awarded Montana-based Barnard Construction Co. $187 million to build barriers in Yuma, Arizona.

 

Lt. Col. Jamie Davis, a spokesman for the Department of Defense, said in a statement to The Hill that the El Paso contract would help pay for “30-foot bollard fencing and a five-foot anti-climb plate” and that the Yuma contract would build “18-foot bollard fencing and a five-foot anti-climb plate.”

 

It had previously been reported that the Department of Defense intends to install 46 miles of additional barriers at El Paso and 11 miles of fencing at Yuma.

  1. That to me sounds great it should have been done a long time ago thank you. Now if we could just send the ones that have already crossed the border back over the Border or wherever they came from that would be perfect
    THANK YOU POTUS.
