REPORT: Trump Border Wall Work Begins in Texas

Written by  Dan Lyman

Work on the first section of the Trump border wall was started on federally-owned land in South Texas, according to a media report.

Anonymous federal officials closely associated with the project confirm that discreet planning has been in-progress for over six months, and construction could commence in January of 2018 on a nearly three mile stretch of barrier that would run through the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge near McAllen, Texas, which was a hotbed of illegal crossings during the Obama administration.

“The structure would consist of a concrete base, which would serve as a levee, and be topped with a fence made of steel bollards, similar to a levee wall built almost a decade ago near Hidalgo, Texas,” writes the Texas Observer. “The proposed plans call for building a road south of the wall and clearing refuge land on either side of the wall for surveillance, cameras and light towers.”

Leftists are already gearing up to fight its construction by claiming the wall will supposedly “destroy the refuge,” an argument which places the health and welfare of plants and birds above those of American citizens who are the victims of criminal illegal immigrants on a daily basis.

3 miles down, 1,917 to go. It is a start though. After the wall is built, the challenge will be to keep it under constant watch. Tunnels also need to be found and blown closed..

Government money is not required to build the wall. A private bond issue would be repaid from money saved. See #5 below... MAGA
President Trump's team is brilliant and building the Border Wall will be the smartest and greatest investment ever made by the USA government.!!! Forget repayment by Mexico and ignore a tax. Besides the carnage from drug pouring in, look at these costs.
1] The 2011 Martin & Ruark "The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on US Taxpayers" "estimates the annual costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local level to be about $113 Billion; nearly $29 Billion at the federal level and $84 Billion at the state and local level”.
Today’s and future costs are significantly greater.
2] The $113 Billion did not include the cost of humans and illicit drugs trafficking, lost citizen’s wages, the society’s drug users and crime victims nor positive benefit factors as less crime from repeat deported criminals, safer streets and communities.
3] The recent MIT and the anti-Trump Washington Post’s fact checker estimated the wall cost could be as high as $25 to $41 Billion for the entire border length.
4] Reducing the annual costs by 10%, the worse-case Wall Cost would be repaid within 2 to 4 years !!!
5] When did any government (or any financial adviser) make an investment with a 25% to 50% return within the first year followed by that annuity for life?
6] It would be just a bonus if Mexico made any repayment
7] Even I would invest in a limited 5% bond to be repaid in within 10 years from the above savings. That bond issue would generate too much money if made available.

Fake news, supposedly Trump's people have been developing plans for some time now. Report says actual building of this three mile section will not start until January 2018.

Along with the wall and Border Patrol agents to keep watch on it we also need "our" congress in DC to do their job and pass laws to keep out the foreign criminals that keep coming back time after time after being deported. If those in DC cannot do the job it's time to vote them out.

Go, President Trump! Let's get it done! We need to secure our borders and reclaim sovereignty.

Money could be better spent on repair of our roads, bridges and other public things, anyone who thinks a wall will keep anyone out who wants to come are dreaming. I would also let them show me one wall that ever kept anyone out, and wall are only ever designed to slow down or stop marauding Armies not ordinary persons, There is always someone who will be bribed or blackmailed to let you through the wall, and double crosser's who let you through and then kill you so you can not tell normally go down pretty quick.
SUCH A WASTE OF AMERICAN MONEY AND ONLY SUPPORTED BY 35% OF THE POPULATION.

They can be either killed or deported. This isn't up for conjecture. This is our nation and the borders deserve respect. I have no pity for those that won't observe US law.

Life is tough, it's tougher if you're stupid.

I am very happy about this wall going up.....Illegal immigrants have caused a lot of harm to American Citizens.....Just look at Kate Stienle and think about her family and all the other families who have lost the people they love...Think if it were your daughter, son, mother, father, sister or brother....Maybe the people who think this a waste of our money and our money not being spent well......How much is your loved ones worth?

"Money could be better spent on repair of our roads, bridges" to enable the drug dealers easier distribution?

Yaknow what. Maybe a return to dirt roads would save a generation of Americans from the drug trafficking, people trafficking, and gang crime. If so, I'd gladly vote for that.

BUILD THE WALL. BUILD IT STRONG. BUILD IT TALL. AND DEFEND IT LIKE OUR LIVES DEPEND ON IT.

THEY DO.
