Why Are We Spending $3000 per ft On A Border Fence?

A reader responds to, "The Border Fence is a Scam",

Border Fence

I had written an article on this subject on Saturday, mine was more on the amount of money the taxpayers are spending on it, but I like to see other bloggers not scared to step up and speak out, that is what it takes.

Would you mind if I link to this article or if you could comment on mine with a link here to help keep conversation going.

Thanks,

Raleigh Fence Contractors Asks: Why Are We Spending $3000per ft On A Border Fence

It is a Saturday morning here in western North Carolina, where I am enjoying a long weekend with my wife and kids taking in the breathtaking views from Beech Mountain, North Carolina. As I read news feeds this morning, I can’t help but dig into the reports I am reading on the Border Fence near San Diego which started construction yesterday. It is a 3.5 mile section that the work has begun on, costing taxpayers $16 million.

Since I am the owner of Raleigh Fence Contractors, LLC in the Triangle area of North Carolina, I immediately pulled my calculator out to see the CPF (cost per foot) on this fence. My first problem is that my ProjectCalc Plus doesn’t hold enough digits to calculate past 7 figures! I guess I never knew that since my projects never go over 5 figures. Of course, I haven’t ever landed one of those government projects either! So, after using a different calculator, I determined that we are paying over $3000.00 per foot for a border fence. Is this another version of our government paying $300 for staplers? Why does it cost so much to build this fence? It is a 15′ tall steel mesh fence. So, more research was in order.

I found that the bulk of this contract is to fill in a canyon with dirt, 1.9 million tons of dirt! Again, WHY! If there is already a fence in place, then the terrain must allow for it, so why spend millions of our tax dollars to fill in the canyon. Now I am not aware of all the research that must have gone into engineering this fence, nor am I familiar with the area it is being built. In the short amount of time I spent researching the fence, all I found on the specifications is that is a 15′ tall steel mesh fence. I also found that the rest of the over 1900 mile of fence will cost $2-$3 million per mile which is between $400 - $600 per foot.
