President Donald Trump got elected on the promise that he would build a border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
According to reports, the Trump administration is set to reveal a number of “prototype” designs for the border wall sometime this summer.
No official dates have been confirmed yet, but it is believed that they will be released before the end of the summer.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The San Diego Union Tribune reported in early May that 20 different designs would soon be chosen from more than 400 submissions to the Department of Homeland Security for review.
Those 20 finalists were then contacted by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol with a request for more detailed proposals to meet the specified requirements of a border wall, including cost estimates, fully-detailed designs and even subcontracting plans.
Those specific requirements include the wall being at least 30 feet tall and incapable of being easily scaled over or tunneled underneath, as well as appearing at least somewhat aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
The four to eight prototype finalists that will soon be announced will be chosen from those 20 various designs that had been submitted for further review, according to Foreign Policy.
Each of the prototype finalists will be expected to build a 30-foot long section of the wall on federal land in San Diego so that it can be properly tested.
Trump has received a lot of opposition to the wall, from both the Democrats and Republicans, but he remains committed to getting it built.
