Strangely, cement and other construction materials provider Cemex SAB was also mentioned internally as a potential beneficiary even though it is based in Mexico.

Construction of a wall on the border with Mexico will start in the near future, the fencing will become an efficient instrument in the fight against crime and drug traffic, US President Donald Trump said during his address to Congress.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it will accept "concept papers" for the wall's design beginning next week and will choose the best ones by March 20.

The businessman added it is unclear what other companies might participate or what demand would exist for the wall's cement. A far cry from most big government projects.

While the wall remains a politically controversial topic, Shawn Moran, the vice president of the National Border Patrol Council has stated a wall would be a "vital tool" in enforcing our nation's borders.

Last Friday, the Dept. of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection posted a preliminary solicitation for firms interested in designing and building the controversial border wall along the southern USA border. Nineteen of the interested vendors are woman-owned companies, and 15 are Hispanic American owned.

The notice goes on to say that the bidding process will be handled in two phases.

The designs for the wall will be evaluated based on "operational requirements, cost effectiveness, constructibility, and durability", Carlos said, adding that "any and all prototypes will be created to deter illegal entry into the United States".

"Well, they are", Pence said.
