President Trump’s border wall is becoming more of a reality each and every day.
The Department of Homeland Security recently “requested proposals for President Trump’s border wall, and specifically, they would like it to be ‘aesthetically pleasing in color’ on the side that faces America.”
I mean, after all, nothing says “aesthetically pleasing” like a 30 foot high, concrete wall–especially if it’s painted the shade of salmon.
According to PJ Media:
Other requirements for the wall include its height…
…However the government is flexible on certain details.
According to one document posted online by U.S. Customs and Border Protection Friday night, the wall should be 30 feet high, built using concrete, and “physically imposing.” However, it says designs over 18 feet (5.5 meters) high could be acceptable.
“Designs with heights of less than 18 feet are not acceptable,” the document said. They also are looking for designs that do not allow people to climb over it or tunnel under it.
“The wall shall prevent/deter for a minimum of 1 hour the creation of a physical breach of the wall (e.g., punching through the wall) larger than 12 inches (30 cm) in diameter or square using sledgehammer, car jack, pickaxe, chisel, battery-operated impact tools, battery-operated cutting tools, oxy/acetylene torch or other similar hand-held tools,” it said.
I’ve heard that one of the proposals getting the most attention includes a 30 foot high mural of Meryl Streep.
Ok, that was a joke. But a funny one, no?
