Border Wall Costs Estimated By The Government Are Quite Expensive

During the campaign, Donald Trump estimated the cost of building a “big beautiful border wall” along the US/Mexico border at somewhere between $8-12 Billion, depending on which campaign video excerpt you watch. He ought to know, right? After all, he’s built buildings that now characterize New York City’s skyline – suffice it to say he knows the construction industry and what is possible and also what is not. Still, it now seems the DHS has put out a report that doubles that cost and doubles the time to build it as well.

There was a rather troubling article in Reuters World News on February 09, 2017, titled, “Exclusive – Trump border ‘wall’ to cost $21.6 billion, take 3.5 years to build: internal report,” by Julia Edwards Ainsley. The article wasn’t as bias as most of the anti-Trump media has written about the actual costs of building a border wall; the piece stated:

“The DHS [Department of Homeland Security] report’s estimated price-tag is much higher than a $12-billion figure cited by Trump in his campaign and estimates as high as $15 billion from Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.” The article cited a 3-phase project. The first phase was $306 Million to reinforce the existing fence wall, wherein some places it is falling apart, in disrepair, or inadequate to keep out even a wayward elephant. The rest of the wall will be more costly, with the final phase being along the Rio Grande, where it will be difficult to build, costing much more.
