Corsi touts 'Terrablock' as border barrier

Trump with border wall prototypePresident Donald Trump can protect our southern border and also fulfill a campaign promise, says a political analyst and bestselling author.

Dr. Jerome Corsi is touting Terrablock, a barrier used to protect military bases, for a quick and less-expensive way to block hundreds of miles of undefended border territory in the Southwest.

Terrablock is a product of military contractor Hesco, and Cori tells OneNewsNow he acts as a consultant for the company after learning about its product.

Approximately 1,200 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border remain unprotected, Corsi says, and Terrablock could be installed for less than a billion dollars, he says.

“And that's money that President Trump already has allocated. It's available,” Corsi says. “And it could be put in place by election day 2020."

"Build That Wall!"Then-candidate Trump rallied millions of Americans with tough-talking campaign speeches about “building a wall” and predicting he would make Mexico’s government pay for it. Reactions to such predictions have ranged from mockery to cries of racism and xenophobia, and Trump has fought the courts and Congress to fund border wall construction.

Progress has predictably been slow. The New York Times reported in a Nov. 8 story that eight miles of wall in South Texas are going up after months of delays, and a former Border Patrol chief told the Times that contractors are working "a lot faster" than a similar push for border wall construction during the George W. Bush administration. 

About 76 miles of replacement wall have been completed along the border, the story reported.

OneNewsNow reported in an October story that approximately 65 miles of border wall are planned for next year in South Texas, where there is no physical barrier at all and where 40 percent of illegal apprehensions occur.

Corsi says each section of Terrablock is “modular” and even a semi-truck is unable to penetrate the barrier.

“And you can see how fast the Army Corps of Engineers can install this,” he says, referring to Youtube videos. “It's a remarkable product."

The author said the American public should encourage President Trump to consider Terrablock to help fulfill his campaign promise.
