Floods trap hundreds in southern usa for years, with no warning, and cause a $15 billion disaster.
And now the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says it will build a wall along the nation’s southern border.
President Trump will propose to do this along the 2,000-mile (3,800 kilometers) border that already has more than 900 miles of fencing.
The Department of Homeland Security estimate said that fencing would cost nearly $19 billion and the cost of building two miles of barriers would also be $1 billion.
“The proposed wall will create a safe, secure and secure and enforceable U.S. border with Mexico,” Secretary John Kelly said.
Kelly’s budget proposal, called his “first big initiative to fight our growing border crisis”, is expected룰렛 to include a wall along part of the border, along the 700-mile (1,134-kilometer) river in Texas and in the Northern Triangle region in California.
Fences are usually more expensive than new structures since they need to be built, whereas fences are typically easier to put up. In this case the Trump team expects to find a way to build a wall much cheaper than existing infrastructure and get it up and running much quicker than the United States government does.
The Wall Project was created under President Barack Obama’s administration when it was supposed to be completed by January 20, 2018.
It had initially cost about $10.5 billion, in the form of about $1 billion per mile.
A senior administration official told NBC News that that figure will be sca바카라 게임led down from the final estimate of $17.4 billion.
The new estimate was prepared by the Department of Homeland Security after officials from the Department of Justice, FBI and Transportation Security Administration came to Washington to discuss options for the wa룰렛ll, according to the official.
The figure includes nearly 4 million additional walls along the border since Trump took office. In 2015, when the wall project was supposed to be complete in March, the estimated cost per mile stood at almost $3,000, the Wall Street Journal reported.
On October 27, the United Nations Security Council unanimously voted to approve the establishment of a temporary buffer zone around the world’s busiest city to prevent terrorist attacks, which include the 9/11 attacks.
The United States has agreed in writing to pay an estimated $10 billion in reparations to the families of 9/11 victims.
