Texas Officially Awards Contact for Border Wall

Earlier this week, we reported that Texas Governor Abbott was about to give the thumbs up for his own border wall project.

That contact has now been awarded.

The Texas Facilities Commission approved the $11 million contract to be awarded to the Michael Baker International Inc. and Huitt-Zollars.

Build that Wall

According to the proposal, the companies will jointly help find “willing private landowners to facilitate construction.”

Governor Abbott has also pledged $250 million from the state to back the project.

A recent bill came across Abbott’s desk from the state legislature to allocate a total of $1.88 billion for the project.

Of that money, $750 million is explicitly slated for barrier walls.

Abbott has not yet signed that bill.

In all, the state had identified 733 miles of border that need to be protected (of the 1,200 miles of the border with Mexico).

Michael Baker International Inc. has already worked on 500 miles of the border wall project.

Huitt-Zollars is a local company here in Dallas, and has designed BP stations in both Texas and California.

It has been reported that more than 100 homeowners in the state have already agreed to allow Texas to construct fencing on their property.

      1. Of course not! The Dems love illegals, because they are votes for the Democrats, who don’t care whether the votes are legal or not, witness the rigged election for Biden!

    1. carter, clinton were supporters of the jessie jackson, al sharpton . provided them wilth billions of dollars for the blacks, which they use for their own pockets.
      hw bush ran the greatest drug cartel in history,, the CIA. with barry seale, bill clinton, oliver north.

  1. Yay!! 🎉🎉Congratulations to Texas Republicans on their success! Baby steps in the right direction…keep up the great work.

  2. All I have to say is, “You GO,Texas! Build that wall ASAP. Tell Biden to go pound sand and hide in his basement till the job is finished. Then, impeach Biden for treason.

  3. Thank you, Governor Abbott, and the state legislature for coming up with a realistic plan to secure our border. Why does the Biden administration want to shot news drones to keep the public in the dark? It is creating a lot of talk among Americans about the Democrats’ intentions for creating this humanitarian crisis on texas border towns.

  4. Texas has to do it, because after the fraud of an election, there not enough in DC with balls to stand up to the worthless POS, in congress. It is time to remind those folks who works for who, let the firing’s began, on both sides.

  5. when WE DEAL WITH A COMMUNIST LEFT DEMOCRAT PARTY IN CONTROL OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY WE DEAL WITH THE SATIN NOT THE LOVING AMERICANS PEOPLE /WILL IT EVER STOP /??

  6. Gov. Abbot has closed down the ports of entry. Very Good!! However, we still have thousands of Illegals residing under the bridge Fox News shows us on the T.V. Why doesn’t Gov. Abbot round up a company or two of National Guardsmen and Texas Dept. of Safety personnel and open the Entry Gate(s), as necessary, and herd these Illegals OUT and make the gates EXIT ONLY gates??? Seems like a nice easy way to solve the problem. NO PAPERWORK. HA!!! Then, KEEP the gates as EXIT only gates.
