If those caravans coming knew this they might turn around and head for the hills. These are tactics used on Guantanamo inmates!

"Federal immigration officials are force-feeding six immigrants through plastic nasal tubes during a hunger strike that has gone on for a month inside a Texas detention facility, it emerged on Thursday. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) says 11 detainees at the El Paso processing center have been refusing food, some for more than 30 days.

Detainees who spoke out, along with a relative and an attorney representing hunger strikers, said nearly 30 detainees from India and Cuba have been refusing to eat, according to an investigation by the Associated Press.
Some are now so weak they cannot stand up or talk. Another four detainees are on hunger strikes in the agency’s Miami, Phoenix, San Diego and San Francisco areas of responsibility, an Ice spokeswoman, Leticia Zamarripa, acknowledged on Wednesday. "

It doesn't need to cost 8 Billion to build the wall? Yep that's right a company can do it for 1.4 billion.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/company-offers-to-build-234-miles-o f-border-wall-for-1-4-billion

A U.S. company is offering to build 234 miles of President Trump's border wall for just $1.4 billion, a fraction of the $8 billion the Trump administration is hoping to use for that project.

Fisher Sand and Gravel Company's President and CEO Tommy Fisher said the government is overpaying and that for $4.31 billion, he can build the wall and incorporate paved roads and border technology plus warranty.
"Our whole point is to break through the government bureaucracy," Fisher told the Washington Examiner. "If they do the small procurements as they are now … that’s not going to cut it."

Of the $8 billion Trump is hoping to spend, he already has $1.375 billion of that amount from Congress, which can only be used to build fencing in the Rio Grande Valley. Trump is seeking to repurpose another $3.1 billion in defense funding for more border wall and $3.6 billion more through his emergency declaration that Congress and the courts will challenge.

Fisher said that the roughly $1.4 billion is enough to build 20 miles of levee wall in the Rio Grande Valley, plus another 214 miles. That pot of money, however, can only be used in the Rio Grande Valley, according to the bill Congress passed approving those funds and was only expected to be used for about 55 miles of steel slat fencing.

The Army Corps of Engineers is not ready to start looking at how to spend the $8 billion that Trump is hoping to spend on the wall, a representative told the Washington Examiner last week. The corps is considering how to spend money Congress gave DHS last fiscal year and has not requested bids from the private sector because it's still in the procurement process.

Replacement and new wall projects have struggled to get underway in Trump's first two years in office. Just 35 miles of wall have gone up in that time. The Army Corps of Engineers has procured around 75 miles but has not awarded $900 million for the project of the $1.35 billion that was in the 2018 omnibus.

DHS officials and several lawmakers are expected to visit the site of his border wall construction site in Arizona next week.


Remarks: I hope they let Mr. Fisher do it, and since they gave Trump $1.375 in that agreement that prevented the second government shutdown, I say, let the wall BEGIN!
