The border wall has boondoggle written all over it. Whenever there’s this much taxpayer money sloshing around it’s inevitable. Not to mention the eminent domain issues.
The initial money for the border wall will be part of a $30 billion supplemental request for defense spending this year. Customs and Border Patrol has already begun soliciting ideas from businesses, with more than 600 submitting design concepts. The agency is expected to release two formal requests for proposals soon, one focusing on a concrete wall and another for other types of barriers.
