Americans of all backgrounds want to see our countries borders secure and our people safe.
That includes 60+ Hispanic-owned businesses who have registered bids to help build Trump’s border wall.
Mario Burgos certainly isn’t anti-immigrant. His father was born in Ecuador. His maternal grandparents immigrated from Europe.
But that won’t stop him from bidding on the proposed Mexican border wall.
“It’s not an anti-immigrant thing for me. It’s about creating jobs. And honestly [it’s] like any other job,” said Burgos.
Burgos is one of more than 60 Hispanic-owned businesses that have registered as vendors that are interested in bidding on the project — about 10% of the 600 or so companies that have done so.
Formal bidding has yet to start, but the Department of Homeland Security is expected to post details for bidders later this week.
