Photos Emerge of Border Wall Survey Team Prepping The Buildout

Trump’s never gonna build that wall, you say?

Think again. As the Texas Observer reports:

For at least six months, private contractors and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials have been quietly preparing to build the first piece of President Trump’s border wall through the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge in South Texas.

CBP plans to construct an 18-foot levee wall that would stretch for almost three miles through the wildlife refuge, according to the official. The structure would consist of a concrete base, which would serve as a levee, and be topped with a fence made of steel bollards, similar to a levee wall built almost a decade ago near Hidalgo, Texas. A second federal official confirmed these details to the Observer.

Workers drilled into the ground Friday afternoon to extract soil samples in advance of the construction. When Observer journalist Jen Reel showed up to take pictures and ask questions, a security guard told her to pack up and hit the road – but not before she snapped these pictures:

 

Sorry wildlife at the 2,088 acre Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge – you’ve been BTFO, never to recover. We’ve got a country to protect.

    A $20 billion wall will protect us from illegals. no doubt about it, not like they ever made tunnels. or are capable of cutting a hole thru it. besides stepped up deportation has been very successful accprding to (fake) news reports. but i guess ya gotta feed the ________. #sad

    Wow, Nancy. I’ve never thought about those possibilities. Are you on the CBP? If not, you should be. There is no telling how many other ingenious suggestions you might have to thwart people illegally coming into our country.

    Been there done that in swamps, muddy holes, boiling hot road sides and on frozen ground. Fetched a few drillers from local jails – don’t mess with these guys unless you want a smack in the chops. Jen Reel had the good sense to leave when asked.

    It’ll get more interesting when they start drilling in Cartel-land.

    Of course they look latino. It is on the fucking border. You East Coast dudes always amaze. America is majority latino on the border. Big league. They are Americans as well. Speak English and mainly voted for Trump.

    Over 29% of Larinos voted for Trump. Dem nightmare. Fact.

    The wall is symbolic, that’s all. Not that the wall itself would be a huge deterrent for illegals if they are not being targeted for deportation once inside.
