I hope the report is incorrect, inaccurate.
Some like to spread misinformation .. and then announce a fait accompli..

I second Ruth's comment.
A wall on the U.S. border, would, in no way, justify the apartheid Wall, in Israel - keeping Palestinians out of their homeland and making the lives of Palestinian families hell.

Thanks for sharing, noted. Bridges, not walls!

I was just going to comment exactly what Ruth said. That was my first reaction. When will the Trump supporters realise that a family that uses illegals to build their buildings and Ivanka's fashion line being manufactured in China by child labor weren't going to make America great again. It's just words and Trump as anyone taking conman 101 could tell you is you always tell them what they want to hear and then you can do anything you want.

So we should only use an American firm to build the wall? Take twice as long and be done half as well.
I'm talking literally about the wall itself not the ethics thereof.

I did a little research on the veracity of this story, and there are quite a few news stories that are in agreement about the contracts awarded. The funds have already been appropriated for the prototypes.

It seems that six companies were awarded contracts by DHS to build eight different border wall prototypes based on concrete or on "materials other than concrete". The names of the companies sound American, but one of the companies ELTA North America, is an Israeli-owned defense manufacturer that has been headquartered in Maryland. They just opened a new, 21,500-square-foot headquarters facility on May 8 in Annapolis Junction, Maryland. The radar manufacturer works on Israel's "Iron Dome" anti-missile system and has been involved in developing responses to drones. ELTA is owned by Israel Aerospace Industries, according to the Baltimore Sun.

There is no mention anywhere in the articles that I read, except for one, about the fact that one of the companies is an Israeli firm.

I am not in favor of the wall, but what happened to Trump's promise to keep jobs here?

Trump is pretty short on integrity, and so keeping his promises is apparently not on top of his priority list.
