Interest Skyrockets In Bidding on Trump’s Border Wall Project


More than 200 construction and engineering companies are interested in bidding on the project to build Trump’s long-awaited wall along the nearly 2,000 mile-long border between the U.S. and Mexico, according to a story in the Hill.

This information came from a website for contractors who wish to bid on federally-funded projects.

In addition to the major construction firms listed, such as Caddell and well-known defense contractor Raytheon, The Hill reported that several small businesses have also applied to work on the project, “including 20 owned by Hispanic-Americans who could come under scrutiny for helping to build the controversial wall that critics say represents Trump’s hostility toward the immigrant community.”

According to estimates from the Department of Homeland Security, the border wall could cost more than $21 billion. However, President Trump repeatedly told voters before his election that Mexico would end up paying for it. Critics have said that this won’t happen, but President Trump is known for his ability to accomplish the impossible.
