Mexican Cement Company Offers To Help Trump Build His "Big, Beautiful, Powerful" Border Wall

Tyler Durden's picture

As Trump gears up to take the oval office, vendors are already lining up to get a piece of his massive infrastructure projects, including his "Big, Beautiful, Powerful Border Wall."  Ironically, one of the first vendors to publicly announce their interest in bidding on the border wall is none other than Mexican cement producer, Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua.  While Trump's border wall has been fiercely protested by numerous senior elected officials in Mexico, including former President Vicente Fox, Grupo Cementos' CEO admits "we can't be choosy."

A Mexican cement maker is ready to lend its services to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to build the wall he wants to erect on the southern border of the United States to curb immigration.

 

"We can't be choosy," Enrique Escalante, Chief Executive Officer of Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua (GCC) said in an interview. "We're an important producer in that area and we have to respect our clients on both sides of the border."

 

Based in Chihuahua, a large northern state bordering Texas and New Mexico, GCC is one of the biggest construction materials companies in Mexico. It generates around 70 percent of its sales in the United States, where it also has three plants.

 

Escalante said Trump's plans to invest in energy and infrastructure in the United States augured well for the firm.

 

"For the business we're in, Trump is a candidate that does favor the industry quite a bit," Escalante said.

Luckily for Trump, and Grupo Cementos, the National Enquirer has already drawn up "construction plans & blueprints."

 

Meanwhile, as TMZ points out, "Bikers 4 Trump" have already started building a commemorative border wall of their own just outside of Atlanta.  For the bargain price of $60 per brick, or $100 for two, you too can purchase a custom-etched brick for the wall.

Bikers 4 Trump tells TMZ they've been plugging away for a couple months on a brick border wall of their own, which they plan to move to the Mexican border should Trump ever get the real deal constructed.

 

We're told they already have 200 bricks stacked in Atlanta next to State Hwy 49, and they feature names like Antonio Sabato Jr. and Joe Bonsall ?of The Oak Ridge Boys. Bricks have also been purchased in Scott Baio, Ted Cruz and Ted Nugent's names -- although none made their own donation.

And, lest you thought this was a joke, here is some video of the newly etched bricks hot off the press and bound for the Atlanta wall.

 

What more is there to say?  The next 4 years are going to be surreal.

As long as the wall is built and it's high and strong, I'm OK. :-)

It was usefull when it was built. Vatican has a wall too. So does Israel. Pretty useful. Illegals will have a hard time climbing this wall.

China's wall. Its enemies broke through it like cheese.

You can get inside the Vatican. It's like a neighborhood inside Italy. Not a country in the common sense.

Israel? That freakin racist country with its Apartheid wall. Its enemies will soon tear it down too.

Let's compare Mexico's immigration laws to America's immigration laws. What would happen to an American who moved to MExico without permission and got a job? What would happen if that American demanded free housing, education, health and other services? I say we treat their citizens the same way they would treat our citizens who violate their laws. Fair enough?

Therefore, they do not have the right to steal Palestine, regardless whether Palestine is a race or not. Palestine has been around since the time of Jesus. Israel was wiped out in 721 BC. Only Judah was left.

Of course they'd offer their services, that way they can build tunnels and secret entrances to make the wall useless. The Welsh Trump however has Israeli's for that, and they'll overcharge us and make that wall/fence crap The Welsh is trying to push a non-issue. The black tar opium will continue to flow on American streets, along with illegals- so don't worry Mexico!

Yes, the old saying "good fences make good neighbors" applies here.

More people that realize the truth than want to play pretend methinks.

Urban Redneck's picture

When you write it all serious like that... you facilitate the perception of the snarky elitists that anyone who doesn't agree with them is an unedumacted simpleton.  Frost's multiple points in Mending Wall were subtle, ironic and paradoxical.  The wall itself is not what makes good neighbors.

Here's your banana - Article 1907 of NAFTA.  Ready for another go round on the Rinse, Repeat machine?  This time it's different... They've learned the lesson... They swear...  And 'Murica is not only going to dedicate the time, effort and expense to the upkeep of its crumbling infrastructure but also to its crumbling bilateral relations... 

Article 1907: Consultations

1. The Parties shall consult annually, or on the request of any Party, to consider any problems that may arise with respect to the implementation or operation of this Chapter and recommend solutions, where appropriate. The Parties shall each designate one or more officials, including officials of the competent investigating authorities, to be responsible for ensuring that consultations occur, when required, so that the provisions of this Chapter are carried out expeditiously.

2. The Parties further agree to consult on:

    (a) the potential to develop more effective rules and disciplines concerning the use of government subsidies; and

    (b) the potential for reliance on a substitute system of rules for dealing with unfair transborder pricing practices and government subsidization.

3. The competent investigating authorities of the Parties shall consult annually, or on the request of any Party, and may submit reports to the Commission, where appropriate. In the context of these consultations, the Parties agree that it is desirable in the administration of antidumping and countervailing duty laws to:

  1.  

      (i) "reasonable access" means access during the course of the investigation, to the extent practicable, so as to permit an opportunity to present facts and arguments as set out in paragraph (e); when it is not practicable to provide access to information during the investigation in such time as to permit an opportunity to present facts and arguments, reasonable access shall mean in time to permit the adversely affected party to make an informed decision as to whether to seek judicial or panel review, and

      (ii) "access to information" means access to representatives determined by the competent investigating authority to be qualified to have access to information received by that competent investigating authority, including access to confidential (business proprietary) information, but does not include information of such high degree of sensitivity that its release would lead to substantial and irreversible harm to the owner or which is required to be kept confidential in accordance with domestic law of a Party; any privileges arising under the domestic law of the importing Party relating to communications between the competent investigating authorities and a lawyer in the employ of, or providing advice to, those authorities may be maintained;

  2. (a) publish notice of initiation of investigations in the importing Party's official journal, setting forth the nature of the proceeding, the legal authority under which the proceeding is initiated, and a description of the goods at issue;

    (b) provide notice of the times for submissions of information and for decisions that the competent investigating authorities are expressly required by statute or regulations to make;

    (c) provide explicit written notice and instructions as to the information required from interested parties and reasonable time to respond to requests for information;

    (d) accord reasonable access to information, noting that in this context

    (e) provide an opportunity for interested parties to present facts and arguments, to the extent time permits, including an opportunity to comment on the preliminary determination of dumping or of subsidization;

    (f) protect confidential (business proprietary) information received by the competent investigating authority to ensure that there is no disclosure except to representatives determined by the competent investigating authority to be qualified;

    (g) prepare administrative records, including recommendations of official advisory bodies that may be required to be kept, and any record of ex parte meetings that may be required to be kept;

    (h) provide disclosure of relevant information, including an explanation of the calculation or the methodology used to determine the margin of dumping or the amount of the subsidy, on which any preliminary or final determination of dumping or of subsidization is based, within a reasonable time after a request by interested parties;

    (i) provide a statement of reasons concerning the final determination of dumping or subsidization; and

    (j) provide a statement of reasons for final determinations concerning material injury to a domestic industry, threat of material injury to a domestic industry or material retardation of the establishment of such an industry.

Inclusion of an item in subparagraphs (a) through (j) is not intended to serve as guidance to a binational panel reviewing a final antidumping or countervailing duty determination pursuant to Article 1904 in determining whether such determination was in accordance with the antidumping or countervailing duty law of the importing Party.

Nope. I need to see demonstrated sustainability before I accept the premise.  Until then I'm an anti-federalist/confederationalist to the extent I'm ideological at all.

It also keeps out the Palestinians whose land was stolen from them on the basis of some old BS book.

aardvarkk's picture

It is enlightening to research the mandates of the British empire regarding Palestine. It is fashionable around here to hate anything Jewish and especially anything Israeli, but I am with the Jews on Israel. Jordan was supposed to be the home for these "Palestinians" (a term that did not exist prior to the 60s or so). The rest, including the West Bank, was supposed to be Israeli. You can argue what the hell the Brits were doing making such decisions in that part of the world for sure, but if you use the British mandates in any part of your argument then you have to kick the "Palestinians" completely out of the West Bank. FWIW, I strongly suspect if the Israelis had the West Bank, the "greater Israel" people moan about so much around here would have been achieved in the minds of the Israelis, and there would cease to be a problem.

   "The Israelis have a wall they call a Separation Fence, but it’s a great big wall just the same, complete with graffiti.  Ugly as hell and sort of looks like the old Berlin Wall.  Some say the modern Israeli wall, still a work in progress, is anti-Semitic.  Critics say the wall keeps Palestinian Semites from their property, but you never hear about that in the great big wonderful American mainstream media. Why is that? Maybe because the Israelis wisely call their border wall a Separation Fence and can cite all sorts of statistics about increased safety and security. The exact same sort of statistics that Trump will be able to cite!"
 
   "The Chinese have that Great Wall of China. Seen from outer space, the Great Wall draws millions of tourists. Maybe a million selfies per day are shot on that great big wall, with a gazillion great big smiley faces.  Nobody asks the Chinese to tear down that wall, not even relatives of the former Mongol invaders. Of course the Chinese hate Donald Trump because they know if that Great Wall of Trump gets built it will draw tourists away from  China. Those same tourists that fly over to China to breath smoggy air, spend gobs of money on fake designer goods and walk the Great Wall of China today, will one day probably go to the Great Trump Wall of America."
