Largest contract yet for US-Mexico border wall
A North Dakota construction company has been awarded a massive $1.3 billion contract to build a portion of President Trump’s signature wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Republican Sen. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota confirmed that the contract to build the 42-mile section of wall in Arizona was awarded to Fisher Sand and Gravel Co.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Wednesday that there was no set date to start or complete construction on the latest contract award. Construction will take place near Nogales and Sasabe, both in Arizona. LINK

The irony here is palpable

$1.3 billion for 42 miles sounds like a lot

If a private company was paying for it the 42 miles of wall would be about $100 million.

You've gotten almost no new wall in 3.5 years and the shitty slats that are up can be easily cut through.

Metal tube filled with concrete? Sure

Even Jim Acosta was impressed with the new wall in El Paso. Remember that? Way back before the CV19 scare.

You have consider there’s probably one ready-mix plant 100 miles away.

re: Largest contract yet for US-Mexico border wall
Imagine being so cucked that you are against stopping millions of people illegally crossing your border every year. Only in America do people bitch and moan about their leadership trying to prevent human trafficking, metric tons of drugs of all kinds, and millions of people who many times don't want to conform to the countries culture they're illegally trying to enter into.

Really not that bad considering bulkheading a Bayouside can easily get to 1k / ft using sheet pile

In terms of a border that stops illegals, that is a long stretch of land! Forty two less miles the border patrol has to be overly concerned about...
