Trump administration to start building border wall prototypes in summer

Trump floated a solar-paneled border wall with Mexico — here's what it would look like

Though the Congress has not approved funding for the border wall, building prototypes are the easy hurdle, the administration is yet to find up to almost $70 billion in funding for the actual wall, and navigate complex legal issues, such as securing land from property owners.

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade suggested this week that President Donald Trump's proposed wall on the Mexico border could "stop the opioid crisis".

"If you look at the numbers, it just makes sense to build the wall", co-host Ainsley Earhardt concluded.

"We own that land, have access to it and it's a good place to start testing in a real-world environment", Vitiello said.

Officials at Customs and Border Protection told The Washington Post that they have received "hundreds" of designs for the border wall, but the agency has yet to choose vendors.

The prototypes will be built along the existing border fence in San Diego, several at the same time, Vitiello added.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, has called into question the use of a border wall.

Vitiello said the agency had identified about 130 miles that would be unsuitable for a border wall because of bodies of water or other challenging terrain.

Trump had requested US$2.6 billion for border security, including $1.6 billion is for "bricks and mortar construction", in his 2018 budget.

"And this way, Mexico will have to pay much less money", Trump said.
