Trump Administration to Unveil Top Border Wall Designs Soon

Two years ago, Donald Trump said that he wanted to do something special for America’s southern border.

“I would build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me — and I’ll build them very inexpensively, I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall,” President Donald Trump said in June 2015 as he announced his campaign for the White House.

Now, Americans will get their first glimpse of what the wall might look like as the Trump administration prepares to release the final designs for the wall Trump plans to build between the United States and Mexico.

A spokesperson for the office of Customs and Border Protection said four to eight designs for wall “prototypes” will be constructed in San Diego. The prototypes will allow officials to examine the strengths and weaknesses of each design before agreeing on a final design for the planned wall.

The Trump administration had issued a call for designs, and has been considering the proposals submitted since the April deadline.

Throughout the campaign, Trump talked about a wall of varying sizes.

The CBP proposal requests called for designs that included a solid concrete wall and a see-through structure. The administration has indicated both types of wall could be used.

Trump’s FY2018 budget calls for $2.6 billion to build the wall, starting in El Paso, Texas, the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, and San Diego.

“We are absolutely dead serious about the wall,” budget director Mick Mulvaney said in May, labeling it one of the president’s “top three” budget priorities.

Although the project has received much criticism, Trump said his signature initiative will come to fruition.

“The wall will be a great help and that will happen, believe me,” Trump said, after meeting with Republican congressional leaders in June.

At that meeting, Trump said the wall might have solar panels on its top, generating electricity that could help pay for some of the cost of the project.
