The southern border wall is coming whether the left wants it or not. The Department of Homeland Security has already put the job out to bid.

Department of Homeland Security Is Now Taking Bids to Build the Border Wall
When Donald Trump told an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday that construction on a border wall was moving quickly, he wasn’t kidding. Just minutes after Trump left the stage in National Harbor, Maryland, the Department of Homeland Security posted a call for bids to “build the wall.”
According to documents obtained by TMZ, DHS is now accepting applications and proposals from anyone who is interested in leading the project.
The first round of submissions should be for “several prototypes of wall structures” in the “vicinity of the United States border with Mexico.” These prototypes will, likely, go on to provide real-life feedback of how a border wall would work, or whether it would function at all—as well as provide a blueprint for the final border wall Trump promised during his campaign.
If you’re interested in taking part, you should design and submit your drawing (complete with information on cost, materials and labor) to DHS by March 10. If your proposal is selected, you’ll move on to a second round of bidding, and will have to submit a “full RFP” for the work by March 24.
This means the wall could be finished within the next two years.
