Who Wants to Build Trump's Border Wall?
To ADPSR's dismay, the Trump Administration recently published a bidding opportunity for design/construction firms for the border wall project.These firms will be jeopardizing public health, safety and welfare by attempting to force more people to risk their lives in dangerous desert crossings through militarization and intimidation. The complete list of 189 “interested vendors” as of Feb. 27, 2017 is below.
Those wishing to express their feelings can contact the listed firms or, perhaps, the Federal bid managers:

The Dept. of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intends on issuing a solicitation in electronic format on or about March 6, 2017 for the design and build of several prototype wall structures in the vicinity of the United States border with Mexico. The procurement will be conducted in two phases, the first requiring vendors to submit a concept paper of their prototype(s) by March 10, 2017, which will result in the evaluation and down select of offerors by March 20, 2017. The second phase will require the down select of phase 1 offerors to submit proposals in response to the full RFP by March 24, 2017, which will include price. Multiple awards are contemplated by mid-April for this effort. An option for additional miles may be included in each contract award.
Below is the current list of 219 (and counting) interested vendors for the project. As CityLab calls out in their article on the matter, not all listed vendors may be actually interested in the project, but may have other anti-wall motives.
