As of 6/24 - It seems bids have been accepted, but none have been accepted yet.

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/339287-no-contracts-awarded-in-bid-for-trumps-border-wall-report

While the walls usefulness can be debated, it seems they are planning on getting underway sometime this summer.  Trump said in Germany that he still intends to have Mexico pay for the wall, but McConnell "flatly rejected" the notion that Mexico would pay for it.

I guess you could always make it a "solar wall" and it would pay for iteslf!

Nonsensical Trump rhetoric to fire up his pit bull base. Yes, I'm going to say it......plays to the racist element. The wall, if built, whether paid by mexico or not, will serve no purpose. A grand middle finger to our neighbors to the south.

Of course you're going to say it. White guilt makes you say all sorts of stupid things.

these are $20M prototype panels.  They aren't walls.  they will be glorified sound barriers like you see on the side of the freeway.

DHS wants a barrier they can see through, so I doubt they're like the block walls I see along SoCal freeways.

I guess my point was that $20M is a rounding error to the federal gov't, so don't expect much.

Just put up a double chain link fence up with razor wire on top and fill the gap between the two with motion sensors and anti personal mines.

You forgot to mention you will have to pay for it first. Another Trump lie.

Yeah, the $20M is total for all the prototypes and was redirected from mobile video surveillance.

I'm just glad they got hundreds of designs from bidders and they're selecting 4-8 for prototypes to evaluate instead of going big on an idea off the top of someone's head. I'm hopeful Kelly has put together a team that will recognize the best one(s) before tons of money are spent on them.

Cost will be offset by all the illegals being deported that will no longer be using our schools and social services. Import tariffs on Mexican goods would also help pay for it. Are you for or against a wall on our Southern border?

You are potentially right, but that's not what Trump said.

Well, if a tariff is put on Mexican goods, and that money is used to build a wall, then who paid for it if it wasn't Mexico? Was it Cuba, or Canada?

Americans will pay for it. You don't think any tariff will be passed on to the consumer?

Then re invade Mexico back to Mexico City, confiscate the oil and gas, and all the drugs, and build the wall. Call it the worlds biggest deer lease.

I'm sorry. I didn't realize you were actually on my side. Your satire of their mindset was spot on. I will read your comments more carefully from now on.

I am against a wall for most of our southern border. Surveilance and patrol officers would be more effective. All you need to beat a 20 foot wall is a 30 foot ladder. It is purely a simplistic symbol to play to Trump's pit bull base. Something just popped in my mind:
What do you Trumpsters think of Mexican "trannies"? Bet you really lose sleep there!

I didn't know they were building transmissions in Mexico now too.  I suppose it makes sense - I bought an alternator built there, and I think they make engines there too.

Why not transmissions.

Mexican Trannies that stay in Mexico are fine.  Mexican trannies that immigrate legally are fine as well.

The ones that come here illegally overcrowd our already overwhelmed poor underfunded inner school districts and suck up welfare and free healthcare, they gots to go.

I don't think it's as black-and-white as that. The tariffs could be passed onto US consumers and then we would be paying for the wall again.

Obama meant you could keep your plan, fully knowing that a lot of folks plans would be cancelled. But those that weren't cancelled were welcome to keep theirs. Saying Mexico will pay for the wall. I don't think any of us have seen just how that is going to happen.

Could be a major problem for those that vote for wall funding in 2018.

I personally think that you should read all posts more carefully

Seriously, I am all for invading a failed Nation State like Mexico, killing off the Cartels and politicians, taking all their drugs, resorts, and oil gas reserves, and raping their marine resources. Then, we could drive their population southward, and manage some high quality deer leases with high protein food plots, and harvest some 200+ bucks, and also placate whining wealthy globalist pukes with high end prostitutes, and quality Mexican Black Tar Heroin in the process. What could possibly go wrong with a bunch of heavily armed rednecks from Texas running things? We know our market, and have the mindset for a successful transition from chaos, to an orderly decent into Hell. Trust us, we can do this with the proper funding, and lack of leadership standing in the way of constructive progress..
