AND WORD ON ANOTHER WALL
President Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico has a starting point: the San Diego border community of Otay Mesa, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials. The federal agency put out a request for bids from builders interested in vying for the massive project, and some 450 companies stepped forward last week to apply.
And the particulars? The prototype walls must be 30 feet long and up to 30 feet high, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.
“Construction of the models, which will likely take place in June, may attract protesters, but law enforcement officials said they were committed to supporting 1st Amendment rights,” the newspaper noted. “Officials declined to say if officers or deputies would be on site while the construction takes place, but made clear the location will be monitored by law enforcement agencies and Customs and Border Protection.”
