Despite the depressing posts seen here this week, there are a few heartwarming stories out there. Take this one, for example, which announces the beginning of the border wall construction.
The federal government said Tuesday that contractors began building eight prototypes of President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, hitting a milestone toward a key campaign pledge.
Construction in San Diego began three months behind schedule after those who didn’t win contracts protested. The building process will last about 30 days, Customs and Border Protection said.
The agency may pick several winners, or none. It said in a news release that the prototypes ‘will inform future design standards which will likely continue to evolve to meet the U.S. Border Patrol’s requirements.’ The details of the design remain unclear. Each prototype will be up to 30 feet high and 30 feet long.
I sent an email to the White House suggesting machine gun nests every ten yards, but they have yet to respond.
