As President Trump battles with Congress over funding, four companies have been selected by the federal government to build concrete prototypes of the president’s long-promised wall along the border with Mexico.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Thursday that Caddell Construction Company of Montgomery, Ala.; Fisher Sand & Gravel of Tempe, Ariz.; Texas Sterling Construction Company of Houston, Texas; and WG Yates and Sons Construction of Philadelphia, Miss. have been awarded contracts.

The agency issued requests for proposals in March for multiple prototypes.

“Through the construction of prototypes, we are partnering with the industry to identify the best way to build new and replacement infrastructure along our border before we make further investments,” Customs and Border Protection Acting Deputy Commissioner Ronald Vitiello said during a Thursday press conference.

Vitiello said the agency asked for conceptual wall designs using reinforced concrete and alternative material to construct multiple wall prototypes in the San Diego, Calif. area.

“The prototypes and resulting wall infrastructure will complement the various other tools that we employ to secure our borders,” he said.

Drain the swamp , build the wall. MAGA

Vote out of office every member of Congress from AZ who does not actively and vocally support funding for the building of the wall.  Those who do not are not representing the mainstream voters, instead pandering to lobbyists either from the Chamber of Commerce or pro-illegal immigration and anti-Capitalism groups.  We may have to start with Flake.

Should have done this decades ago.

Senator Flake is speaking tonight at our (Gila County/Rim Country Republican) Reagan Day Dinner in Payson.  There are even some folks from the Valley driving up just to submit challenging questions to him.  And we from this area aren't big fans of him, either, but we have all agreed to be courteous.  He will have 20 minutes for his speech, plus 20 minutes for answering the questions we compile that were submitted by the attendee.  Should be a hoot.

It is great news that he is running over 20 points behind Kelli Ward among Republicans, but the GOPe massive money machine that will back Flake hasn't kicked in yet. Nor has the effect of all the Dems who will vote for him in our flawed Primary system.

I have a way to pay for the wall I just don't have the juice to get it to the power brokers. The park service can set fees can Homeland Security, Border Patrol, or the fed put a $5,00 min fee on all international money transfers. They could put it on ever form of money transfers Western Union $5.00 for any transfer less than $500.00 then a dollar a for every $500.00 after. Same for bank wire transfers and money orders we could have them color coded lite blue stock for domestic use and lite green for foreign. The wall will be paid for by the illegals.and the countries they come from.
