Trump Administration Seeks Proposals For Physically Imposing 30 Foot High Aesthetically Pleasing Bor


Trump Administration Seeks Proposals For “Physically
Imposing” 30-Foot-High “Aesthetically Pleasing” Border Wall by Tyler Durden Following months of campaign promises to build
a “big, beautiful, powerful wall” on the southern border of the United States, the Trump administration
has just posted bid guidelines for contractors looking to submit proposals for the multi-billion
dollar project (the full RFPs can be viewed here). Among other things, the RFP calls for a 30-foot
wall that could deter a physical breach for at least 1 hour…oh, and it also has to be
“aesthetically pleasing in color”…but, only on the U.S. side. Per Reuters: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has
issued requests for proposals for prototypes for a wall along the Mexican border, saying
ideally it should be 30 feet (9 meters) high and the wall facing the U.S. side should be
“aesthetically pleasing in color.” “Designs with heights of less than 18 feet
are not acceptable,” the document said. It said the wall should have features that
do not allow people to climb over it and should prevent digging below the wall. “The wall shall prevent/deter for a minimum
of 1 hour the creation of a physical breach of the wall (e.g., punching through the wall)
larger than 12 inches (30 cm) in diameter or square using sledgehammer, car jack, pickaxe,
chisel, battery-operated impact tools, battery-operated cutting tools, oxy/acetylene torch or other
similar hand-held tools,” it said. And don’t even think about climbing over or
digging under the wall either… “It shall not be possible for a human to climb
to the top of the wall or access the top of the wall from either side unassisted (e.g.
via the use of a ladder, etc.),” reads the RFP. “The wall design shall include anti-climb
topping features that prevent scaling using common and more sophisticated climbing aids
(e.g. grappling hooks, handholds, etc.)” And the agency is also aware that some individuals
may try and go under the wall. “The wall shall prevent digging or tunneling
below it for a minimum of 6 feet below the lowest adjacent grade,” reads the RFP. Border Wall Proposals are due to the government by March
29 and contracts are expected to be awarded based on 30-foot-wide sample walls that are
to be built in San Diego. Of course, as we’ve noted before, total cost
estimates for the wall vary widely and range from $12 billion to over $20 billion. Per the Associated Press: This week the president sent a budget proposal
to Congress that included a $2.6 billion down payment for the wall. The total cost for the project is unclear,
but the Government Accountability Office estimates it would cost about $6.5 million a mile for
fence to keep pedestrians from crossing the border and about $1.8 million a mile for a
vehicle barrier. Congressional Republicans have said Trump’s
wall would cost between $12 billion and $15 billion and Trump has suggested $12 billion. An internal report prepared for Homeland Security
Secretary John Kelly estimated the cost of building a wall along the entire U.S.-Mexico
border at about $21 billion, according to a U.S. government official who is involved
in border issues. The official spoke on condition of anonymity
because the report has not been made public. As we recently noted, the new border wall
is expected to be completed in three phases, with the first phase covering only 26 miles
around the easily accessible areas surrounding San Diego, CA and El Paso, Texas. Among other things, starting with the easiest
and most accessible sections of the wall will allow President Trump to declare an early
victory on a key campaign promise. Phase two of the project would cover another
151 miles around other large border cities while phase three would effectively seal off
the border. The plan lays out what it would take to seal
the border in three phases of construction of fences and walls covering just over 1,250
miles (2,000 km) by the end of 2020. With 654 miles (1,046 km) of the border already
fortified, the new construction would extend almost the length of the entire border. The report said the first phase would be the
smallest, targeting sections covering 26 miles (42 km) near San Diego, California; El Paso,
Texas; and in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley. The second phase of construction proposed
in the report would cover 151 miles (242 km) of border in and around the Rio Grande Valley;
Laredo, Texas; Tucson, Arizona; El Paso, Texas and Big Bend, Texas. The third phase would cover an unspecified
1,080 miles (1,728 km), essentially sealing off the entire U.S.-Mexico border. Who could have seen this coming?

  • suggestion: the top of the wall topped with circular balls that are fairly large and that are not penetrable and will spin if anything is attempted to be attached to it.

  • stupid we have so many problems with tunnels in our existing walls. waste of money. only an idiot would think this a problem solver. oh wait DICKtater Donald Jong Un trump is in charge. stupid people

  • they are going to put in vibration sensitive technology to detect any activity including tunneling underneath also the wall will 10ft underground which means if you tunnel underneath it your tunnel will collapse with out any supports put in

  • Get it done!! Then throw that Piece of shit Vlad Tepes and Kelley Two Feathers, over that wall and don't let them back in the US!!

  • If it won't be supporting a high-speed rail on top, then I suggest using the strongest , thickest Plexiglass made, so that the beauty ofย  the scenery is not destroyed, can also see thru it to determine who mayย  be attempting to climb over it, or damage it from the opposite side.ย  Plexiglass is made in Pennsylvania, and will not deteriorate, nor crack. It could be set in a deep concrete base, for added support, and to discourage tunneling.
