Another Step Toward US-Mexican Border Wall

"What is most surprising is the lukewarmness of the Mexican government's economic authorities, which have not shown any firmness against these entrepreneurs".

The requests for proposals are another step toward fulfilling Trump's campaign promise of building a wall on the U.S. southern border to keep out Mexican immigrants. The latest editorial accused the government of responding "tepidly" to those eyeing the project for business and said the barrier would only feed prejudice and discrimination.

"Joining a project that is a serious affront to dignity, is to shoot yourself in the foot", the Archdiocese editorial reads.

"Any company that intends to invest in the fanatic Trump wall would be immoral, but above all, their owners and shareholders will be considered traitors to the homeland", the editorial said.

In a meeting with steel companies in Mexico last week, Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo said the government did not plan restrictions on businesses, but warned that Mexicans would judge and base future buying decisions on "which brands are loyal to the national identity, and which are not".

Trump said: "I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I build them very inexpensively".

President Donald Trump ran on a promise of constructing a wall between the United States and Mexico and has signed an executive order to begin building the barrier on the almost 2,000-mile U.S. -Mexico border.

Earlier this month Cemex, a Mexican building materials supplier, confirmed it would not supply cement for the project after initially saying it would "gladly" provide quotes. Competitor Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua has also signaled a readiness to work on the project.

After repeatedly claiming that Mexico would pay for the wall, President Trump requested $2.6 billion to start the initial planning and construction in his 2018 budget request.

According to one document posted online by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the wall should be built using concrete, and "physically imposing".
