Washington: The United States is now considering installing a steel barrier instead of a concrete wall along its border with Mexico, US President Donald Trump said Sunday, saying his government and the Democratic Opposition were more present to resolve their dispute in the matter, which led to a partial closure of the government a fortnight ago.
“We are now planning a steel barrier instead of concrete (wall), it’s both stronger and less annoying, good solution and made in the US UU” Trump said Sunday afternoon.
The presidential comment came shortly after the meeting between US Vice President Mike Pence and representatives of key leaders of the Democratic Congress: Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
Trump described it as a productive meeting. “Mike Pence and the group had a productive meeting with the representatives of Schumer and Pelosi today, and many details of border security were discussed,” he said.
“We have been in contact with many people and I have informed my friends that we are going to build a steel fence.” Steel It will be steel. It will be less annoying and it will be stronger. But it will be less boring, stronger, and we can use our big companies to do it, using steel, “Trump told reporters when he returned from Camp David to the White House.
“So we are going to build a steel barrier, which gives us a lot of strength at the border,” he said.
Answering a question, Trump said opposition Democrats did not like the option of a concrete wall along the border with Mexico. So he offered them a steel wall. Trump maintains that a physical barrier along the US-Mexico border is essential to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States.
The influx of illegal immigrants into the country, in the hundreds and thousands, is causing considerable loss of money in the billions of US economies.
“They do not like concrete, so we will give them steel, steel goes well, steel is actually more expensive than concrete, but it will be beautiful and very strong, it will actually be stronger “Trump told the press. explaining the reasons for the transition to a physical barrier made of steel rather than concrete.
“What we need is a strong border, we have criminals coming in. We have traffickers coming in. We have drugs coming in. There are things you do not even want to know. And this has been the case for decades, and we can not have any anymore, “said Trump.
“Because of the strength of our economy, the stronger it is, it’s probably the best economy we’ve had, and because of that, it’s happening even more, we have to stop it,” he said. he declares.
