Trump Administration Plans Summer Announcement of Wall Prototypes

by CHARLIE SPIERING16 Jun 20172,545

President Donald Trump’s administration plans to announce design finalists for his “big beautiful wall” soon.

The announcement will take place sometime in the summer of this year, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesperson. It will include four to eight designs for wall “prototypes” to be constructed in San Diego.

The exact date and details of the prototypes announcement have not been set, but is expected to be a major milestone for the president’s promised project.

Trump supporters will soon see for themselves exactly what the wall might look like after the contracts are awarded and constructions of the prototypes are completed.

The prototypes will allow officials to see and test the designs for themselves, according to the CBP, before making a decision on the final design for the planned wall on the Southern border.

It is unclear whether President Trump will be part of the public announcement of the prototype finalists. The White House did not respond to questions from Breitbart News about the president’s deliberations on the wall or the upcoming announcement on wall prototypes.

But some of the final designs may differ from Trump’s campaign vision of a solid wall made of “hardened concrete, rebar, and steel.”

The CBP proposal requests called for both a solid concrete wall and a see-through structure, but share the same goal of preventing illegal border crossings into the United States. Officials confirm that both types of structures may be included in the final prototype decision.

Some Trump supporters were frustrated after the administration failed to get funding for the wall in the FYI 2017 budget funding agreement, allowing Congressional Democrats to claim a key victory.

White House budget director Mick Mulvaney and White House press secretary Sean Spicer defended the administration’s progress, however, pointing out that they secured funding for “bollard” border structures, that would help prevent illegal border crossings. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly described the structures as a “see-through steel wall.”

Trump has also floated the idea of a wall covered with solar panels, suggesting that it might help the wall pay for itself.

The president’s FY2018 budget includes a $2.6 funding request for “a physical wall” on the Southern Border, but Congress has not approved it yet.

“We are absolutely dead serious about the wall,” Mulvaney said in May after releasing the budget proposal, calling it one of the president’s “top three” budget priorities.

While in office, the president has repeatedly updated the public about the wall, arguably his biggest campaign promise that his mostly loyal supporters are watching closely.

“The wall will be a great help and that will happen, believe me,” Trump said, after meeting with Republican congressional leaders in June.

He should hire some wetbacks to paint some of those lovely Mexican murals on the wall.

It would be funny if he used Mexican illegals to build the wall.

On the Golan Heights in Syria: "A raw power grab in violation of every precept of the United Nations Charter and the Geneva Conventions."

Who is ? An oil company based in Newark, NJ, with subsidiaries in ME like Afek Oil & Gas Ltd, claims to have found 'major oil reservoir' in the Golan Heights. Wait for it...

Here's your board: Dick Cheney, James Woolsey, Bill Richardson, Jacob Rothschild, Rupert Murdoch, et al.

THERE YOU HAVE IT!

Court partly reinstates Trump travel ban, fall arguments set

By MARK SHERMAN, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is letting a limited version of the Trump administration ban on travel from six mostly Muslim countries to take effect, a victory for President Donald Trump in the biggest legal controversy of his young presidency.

The court said Monday the ban on visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen could be enforced as long as they lack a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States." The justices will hear arguments in the case in October.

Trump said last week that the ban would take effect 72 hours after being cleared by courts.

The Trump administration said the 90-day ban was needed to allow an internal review of the screening procedures for visa applicants from those countries. That review should be complete before Oct. 2, the first day the justices could hear arguments in their new term.

A 120-ban on refugees also is being allowed to take effect on a limited basis.

Three of the court's conservative justices said they would have let the complete bans take effect.

Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, said the government has shown it is likely to succeed on the merits of the case, and that it will suffer irreparable harm with any interference. Thomas said the government's interest in preserving national security outweighs any hardship to people denied entry into the country.

Two federal appeals courts had blocked the travel policy, which Trump announced a week after he took office in January and revised in March after setbacks in court.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, said the ban was "rooted in religious animus" toward Muslims and pointed to Trump's campaign promise to impose a ban on Muslims entering the country as well as tweets and remarks he has made since becoming president.

The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the travel policy does not comply with federal immigration law, including a prohibition on nationality-based discrimination. That court also put a hold on separate aspects of the policy that would keep all refugees out of the United States for 120 days and cut by more than half, from 110,000 to 50,000, the cap on refugees in the current government spending year that ends September 30.

Trump's first executive order on travel applied to travelers from the six countries as well as Iraq, and took effect immediately, causing chaos and panic at airports over the last weekend in January as the Homeland Security Department scrambled to figure out who the order covered and how it was to be implemented.

A federal judge blocked it eight days later, an order that was upheld by a 9th circuit panel. Rather than pursue an appeal, the administration said it would revise the policy.

In March, Trump issued the narrower order.
