HISPANIC-Owned Businesses DOMINATE Bids For Trump's 'Xenophobic' Border Wall

There's a thinkpiece about how "diversity" on it's own isn't enough and this would be a great example. It's not unheard of historically for the privileged few within marginalized groups to "get theirs" within a system of White Supremacy. Of course, this kind of news is just used as "justification" by some people that Trump's wall totally isn't racist. smh.

Trump's proposed border wall has been described by many of the left as everything from "xenophobic" to just plain "racist" and pretty much everything in between.

That said, perhaps "equal opportunity employer" would be more accurate in light of a new analysis from the Wall Street Journal that took a look at who has submitted bids to help construct the wall so a little dose of irony for the left, hispanic-owned businesses currently lead the charge with 32 bids.

Mario Burgos, the son of an immigrant, owns an Albuquerque, N.M., construction logistics company and plans to submit a proposal. He said he viewed the project as more geared toward border security than immigration, and a surefire way to boost employment in job-strapped New Mexico.

“I am not against immigrants by any stretch of the imagination,” said Mr. Burgos, whose father came to the U.S. from Ecuador. “There isn’t a country in the world that doesn’t have borders and doesn’t want to enforce them.” Mr. Burgos noted that his company, Burgos Group LLC, which holds various defense contracts with federal agencies, has handled projects in southern New Mexico near the border and was familiar with operating in remote, rugged locations.
