A Mexican cement maker is ready to lend its services to President-elect Donald Trump to build the wall he wants to erect on the southern border of the United States to curb illegal immigration.
‘We can’t be choosy,’ Enrique Escalante, Chief Executive Officer of Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua said in an interview with Reuters.
‘We’re an important producer in that area and we have to respect our clients on both sides of the border.’
Trump, a Republican, campaigned vowing to build a ‘big, beautiful, powerful’ wall across the 2,000 mile frontier in order to stop illegal immigrants from Mexico, which he accused of sending rapists and drug traffickers north.
The campaign of the New York businessman who has never previously held public office was widely reviled in Mexico.
Parts of the border are already divided by high fences, and a huge part of the boundary runs along the Rio Grande river.
