Trump ordered 15,000 new border and immigration officers — but got thousands of vacancies instead – Los Angeles Times

In a sign of the difficulties, Customs and Border Protection allocated $60.7 million to Accenture Federal Services, a management consulting firm, as part of a $297-million contract to recruit, vet and hire 7,500 border officers over five years, but the company has produced only 33 new hires so far.

The PAC for Accenture Federal Services gave around $250,000 to 112 members of Congress in campaign donations 2015-2016. Pretty good investment return and insurance policy against not getting raked over coals for not fulfilling contract. And says a lot too for incompetence of the White House managers of the contract. $5+ billion demanded for a wall would produce a 2 or 3 miles of wall at this rate.
