Texas To Award Border Wall Contract

[Public Domain]

Texas is getting closer to awarding a massive contract to construct over 700 miles of border wall fencing. According to The Texas Facilities Commission, the $1 billion contract could be awarded as early as next week

The Washington Examiner reports:

The commission selected engineering firm Michael Baker International of Pennsylvania and design firm Huitt-Zollars of Dallas to team up on the project. The commissioners must vote on the decision before the contract for a program manager can be awarded, and the final monetary amount has not yet been determined. The program manager will handle the budget and determine where to build.

Four total companies expressed interest in the contract.

Both firms have helped with hundreds of miles of completed border wall projects under previous presidential administrations. This is the first time a state has opted to install a barrier at an international border, as it is typically considered the federal government’s responsibility.

Rep. Greg Bonnen, a Republican who represents a Houston suburb, introduced a bill that passed the state Legislature in August to fund Gov. Greg Abbott’s proposals to deter illegal immigration. More than half of the $1.8 billion bill goes toward the border wall and fencing. A Washington Examiner analysis of existing border wall projects revealed just 150 miles of the 1,250 miles of land Texas shares with Mexico have a substantive barrier, leaving the state responsible for roughly 1,100 miles of fencing.

The 733 miles of land where the border wall will be constructed is owned by residents who allowed for the border wall construction, alleviating the risk of lawsuits.

Thank you Governor Abbott for doing what Bozo Biden and his communist handlers refuse to do. It is my hope that California Governor Newsom will be recalled and the new Governor of California along with the Governors of New Mexico, and Arizona will join Texas Governor Abbott in helping to complete the Southern boarder wall.

God Bless Texas and those property owners.
But most of all, God Bless those who have had to deal with the dangers of having these illegal invaders trample on their properties and dealing with the dangers and disease they bring.

God bless texas, and Gov Abbott for not putting up with hidenbiden commie government. Now if all other border states did the same we would solve the problem,hidenbiden will be out of office very soon, and back in his basement,with his warm milk and cookies. Even his own party knows he on his last leg, and will need to step down or removed for total incompetency.

I applaud Texas, but fear it is coming too late to prevent the invasion since most of it has already occurred and the dims will leverage it with “chain migration “!

I hope that Texas be sure to award the building of the wall to conservative companies.

Can we call this border wall “infrastructure” and maybe get some of that $4 Trillion boondoggle money Biden and Pelosi are handing out? I mean, seriously, a border wall seems a lot more like “infrastructure” than does Planned Parenthood, NPR, and the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. Just sayin…

Seems to me nothing would be more justified under eminent domain laws than a border wall that runs parallel to a river, serves as the national boundary and protects citizen property owners. Any objections are misguided and years ago, when this brouhaha began, all those with substantiated objections were biased with connections to families on both sides of the border. Most others were leftist animal rights protesters.
