President Trump ordered the financing and construction of the concrete border wall

President Trump’s campaign promise ordered a concrete border wall to stop illegal immigration from Mexico. Mexicans must finance and build the concrete structure. We the People must create a mutual agreement with Mexico for financing and construction to fulfill the promise of the Presidents. Usable silica sand is the key.

First, think of a skyscraper as a Trump Tower. Skyscrapers around the world are made of concrete. The main ingredient in concrete is silica sand with a cement binder. The beautiful glass fa├žade on buildings like the Trump Tower is made from sand processed at 2,300 degrees Fahrenheit. Single-family home foundations, driveways and sidewalks, basements, and garages are made of usable sand and cement. The tape of roads, bridges and tunnels that connect the world have silica sand as their main ingredient.

Usable Silica Sand is the long tail keyword here. There is a worldwide shortage of the product. Desperate shortages don’t end with building construction in America.

We learned from Jim Hightower’s Lowdown newsletter that in four years, from 2012 to 2016, China consumed more sand for construction than the US between 1900 and 2000. And the city of Shanghai has built more skyscrapers in the last ten years than there. They are in New York City.

Wait a minute, you say. While the EPA was still running, we were told that deserts are growing around the world at an unsettling rate. How can there be a shortage of sand? Unfortunately, the desert sand is not suitable for construction. The granules are too small and round with a compression ratio below the minimum for construction or fracking.

That’s it, fracking. Companies like ExxonMobil and Halliburton use sand to fracture underground shale deposits to find fuel trapped in those rock formations in states like Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Dakota.

Wisconsin’s big oil companies, known as the mother of all frackers, are drilling wells nearly two miles deep. Mother frackers shoot ten million pounds of precious sand into the rock, trying to suck the last miserable drops of peak oil from the earth. There are already a hundred fracture wells in the United States. The United States will use 120 million tons of hydraulic fracturing sand this year, increasing by 30 percent each year.

Fortunately, for the construction of Mexico’s border wall, the president has managed to reverse Obama’s land policies in places like the picturesque Bears Ears National Monument in Utah. Thanks to President Trump’s repeal of mining regulations in these remote and environmentally sensitive alluvial deposit areas along streams and river beds, the availability of silica sand will increase. Don’t worry, habitat protections for endangered species will also be lowered despite opposition from the tourism and conservation lobby and some Democratic lawmakers.

Governments around the world, including China and Indonesia, have made efforts to reduce sand mining. The Mexican government halted legitimate sand mining business operations when it discovered that it was not only destroying its environment, but that the sand was being used in the United States.

Cemex, a small Mexican sand mining corporation with fourteen billion in annual sales, extracts three hundred thousand cubic yards of the beautiful sand of Monterey Bay, CA each year. They are exempt from federal regulations that protect our beaches. His actions rose significantly when Trump was elected on the promise of a border wall.

OK, let’s start. Here are the nuts and bolts of the plan to build Mexico’s border wall.

It will take two years to acquire the property and complete the design. It is not part of the construction plan, American taxpayers will pay that part. With the Dodd-Frank easing, US banks will help recoup the full amount with this plan, as will be explained here.

Thanks to automation in the construction industry, it will take two years with just two hundred unskilled workers to build the wall. The workers could be chosen from a group of incarcerated illegals. The Department of Justice will offer repatriation in Mexico and early release for participation in the construction workforce.

The government then obtains a $ 25 billion 30-year construction bond or a capital improvement bond from a Mexican bank as a financing mechanism. The president’s henchmen estimate $ 25 billion as the cost of the wall. Banamex, Mexico, a subsidiary of Citigroup, or Mexico’s largest bank, Banco do Brasil with five hundred and fifty billion in assets are likely options. With the backing of the United States Congress, the bank can be confident that repayment will begin in the second year of construction.

Congress may establish a public-private company to license sixteen Mexican sand mining corporations to extract sand at locations throughout the United States. Give guarantees to those Mexican corporations for ten years, with the expectation of gross resale of twenty billion dollars of the precious product of cost and controlled price per year, per corporation.

The tax authority is the US Congress, which will impose a special sand mining tax of three percent, equivalent to a minimum of ten billion per year in total, of gross resale of sand, as an instrument of refund.

Goldman Sachs may act as a debt service administrator for the receivables turnover and as the assigned holder of tax revenue deposits. By bond contract, they retain the deposits, without interest, for one year. GS legally takes advantage of that amount of one hundred thousand million by ten thousand million, for the construction of new buildings not related to the Wall. Remember, GS withholds tax revenue for one year before the refund begins.

After the first year, Goldman Sachs begins to reimburse, with Mexican sand mining excise taxes, toward the reimbursement of the bond. GS makes a substantial taxable profit over the thirty-year maturity of the bond from leveraged loans. The United States government benefits from the tax revenue. Mexicans have happily built and paid for the wall.
