    Default A piece of the wall

    This was unbelievable. The private sector really can get the job done more speedily, better quality, less money even when using the best materials!

    If you've been following "We Build the Wall" (private donations and on privately donated land), you're probably aware of this unbelievable project that the Army Core of Engineers said couldn't be done (including 315 ft. of vertical grade from 18% to 31%). But they did it start to finish in 10 days--cost between 5 and 6 million!!

    Look at what the Fisher Company got done in 10 days!! No way our liberal press will ever show this. Building this fence, in those conditions with the infrastructure in place is amazing. It proves things can happen quickly if people work together, but our Congress doesn't want this out!!

    Please sent this to as many people as you can. People need to see what can be done.

    This is what can be done for National Security in just 10 Days of professional work...which is being held up by Elected Officials who have no interest in American Security!

    We also need to use GPR to detect those drug/people smuggling tunnels

    Half a mile of fencing. So, this was more of a "I told you so"/"Look at this"/It can be done" project than anything else.

    Yeah, but it included a road, lighting and surveillance stuff in some though terrain.

    And they're saying "how 'bout a government contract? We can do the same thing for 3 times the money and twice the time!"

    We need to continue the wall. Where is the 1.5 billion dollars trump got for the wall? Use that and then get more.

    18' surely is better than nothing. And elegant proof the government is jacking us around.

    well Sam, there goes the Mexican Pole Vault contender at the next Olympics. They have always bitched, saying everyone that could run, or swim was already in the US. Now they will add Pole VAULT to the list of complaints.

    According to the video, they are installing fiber optic cables that can be used to detect footsteps and tunneling.

    A half mile in ten days, in that terrain, doing everything they are doing, isn't too shabby at all. Heck, it takes the state two to four weeks to simply repave a half mile of interstate.
