This New Meme Is Constructed Entirely From Trump's Vain Border-Wall Requirements

The announcement of the proposal came on Monday, three days after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection requested proposals for "border wall prototypes". The guidelines were released to the public last Friday by the Customs and Border Protection, an agency under the Department of Homeland Security that is responsible for overseeing the construction, and later on, the maintenance and staffing for the wall. "It's clear the people of California don't want to invest in the hateful values that the Trump wall represents".

"The wall shall prevent/deter for a minimum of 1 hour the creation of a physical breach of the wall (e.g., punching through the wall) larger than 12 inches (30 cm) in diameter or square using sledgehammer, auto jack, pickaxe, chisel, battery-operated impact tools, battery-operated cutting tools, oxy/acetylene torch or other similar hand-held tools", it said.

Donald Trump's "big, lovely wall" at the Mexican border should be 30-foot high, look good from the American side and be hard to climb or cut through, according to a contract posted on a government website.

The wall must be reinforced concrete and "physically imposing in height". The specifications noted that under certain circumstances, likely affected by local topography, some portions of the finished wall could be shorter than 9 meters.

Among the requirements is that the wall be "aesthetically pleasing in color" and blend into or match the surrounding landscape on the U.S. side.

Through the construction of prototypes, CBP will partner with industry to identify the best means and methods to construct border wall before making a more substantial investment in construction.

"Spending billions of taxpayer dollars to wall off the remainder of the border is an exorbitantly expensive and an ineffective substitute for a smart, layered approach to border security", said Sen.

CBP issued two RFPs to acquire multiple conceptual wall designs with the intent to construct multiple prototypes.

Ting called the wall that would separate the US and Mexico a "Wall of Shame".

Meanwhile, Trump's budget calls for an outlay of $2.6 billion to begin work on the wall and another $1.5 billion for expanded detention, transportation and removal of illegal immigrants, .
