The wall is being built

But nowhere in the story is there anything about Mexico paying for it.

US hands out first contracts for border wall prototypes

Four companies have been chosen to build prototypes for Donald Trump's planned border wall, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said.

The four concrete prototypes will be 30ft (9m) long and up to 30ft tall, and will be built in the coming months.

Officials will then spend up to two months testing the walls for tampering and penetration resistance using small hand tools, CBP said.

The four contracts are worth up to $500,000 (387,000) each.
So, 2000 mi X 5280 ft/mi / 30 = 352,000 thirty foot sections.

352,000 X $500,000/30 ft = $176 Billion.

A prototype is not starting construction and there are three prototypes being built which are probably small models and Trump gets to choose the design he likes best. Mexico will pay for it in the long run because Trump is a long term investor.

TS #3

The problem is Trump pulled a bait and switch on the U.S. tax payer.

IF we could have such wall at $zero $cost, that's one thing. Why not?

BUT !!

Spending $Billions on that is just going to be a jackpot for the hacksaw, ladder, & shovel salesmen.
And we have higher spending priorities. It's easy to say:
- illegal immigration
- illegal immigration
- illegal immigration
But what specific problem is the expenditure of these $Billions supposed to solve?

Trump shot his mouth off. Splendid.
But McConnell & Ryan dragging their caucus along with it?!

We can't afford it gents. Smarten up!
Thanks from Clara007 and discollector

Or should, under Democrat control.

But the Republican congressional mantra is:
- borrow & spend,
- borrow & spend,
- borrow & spend ...

TS #3 may be technically correct.

BUT !!

I'm not sure it's fully relevant.

The point is, even if they're merely building prototypes, that means they're $spending on it.

$THAT'S the problem.

Trump donated one million USD for Hurricane Harvey relief. Open your pocket book and the moths will fly out meaning that you have a lot of money saved up; how much did you donate? Open your pocket book again because Irma is on the way and next in line.

Mexico already has started paying for it. the money being sent back to Mexico by Illegal Immigrants has been cut massively.

you see Mexicos 2nd largest GDP resource was Illegals sending money back to Mexico. Now it is the 8th largest resource.

How in the fuck is that PAYING for anything? How is that transferring money from the Mexican Treasury to our Treasury to reimburse us for money WE spend on the wall? Do you not know what it means to PAY for something?

If the money sent from both illegals and legals residing in the U.S. to their families in Mexico has been "cut" as you say it is only because fewer illegals and legals are currently residing here.
