Another liberal narrative just got destroyed.
You know, the one that says Trump is racist and his wall is racist.
Guess you’d better tell that to the hispanics lining up to build the wall. They don’t think it’s racist and they’re ready to get started on the work!
You just gotta laugh at how much Trump keeps winning! And us right along with him!
Here is the scoop on the wall, from CNN Money of all places:
Mario Burgos certainly isn’t anti-immigrant. His father was born in Ecuador. His maternal grandparents immigrated from Europe.
But that won’t stop him from bidding on the proposed Mexican border wall.
“It’s not an anti-immigrant thing for me. It’s about creating jobs. And honestly [it’s] like any other job,” said Burgos.
Burgos is one of more than 60 Hispanic-owned businesses that have registered as vendors that are interested in bidding on the project — about 10% of the 600 or so companies that have done so.
Formal bidding has yet to start, but the Department of Homeland Security is expected to post details for bidders later this week.
President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall has sparked a lot of criticism about its cost, estimated to be at least $10 billion, as well as whether a wall is smart immigration policy. But the companies bidding on the 1,300-mile barrier aren’t concerned about policy.
Burgos’ business, Burgos Group, has grown from two employees to 120 in the last six years. The firm, based in Albuquerque does work across seven states, including federal contracts.
He said he doesn’t have a specific opinion whether the fence is a good or bad idea as a matter of immigration policy. But he believes any construction project that puts people to work is a good thing. His employees, some of whom are immigrants, feel the same way.
Another interested bidder, Patrick Balcazar, is far more opinionated about the wall.
