It’s a big day in border wall talks today. According to the US Department of Homeland Security, officials, have chosen at least four border wall prototypes to begin the anticipated construction of the US-Mexico border wall. Of those prototypes, the first four, are all reportedly concrete walls and up to 30 feet high.
Officials confirmed to The Daily News that the border wall prototypes would be tested in San Diego over the next several months, before, other proposals are combined with the first four to eventually come up with the prototype for the full wall. While no single company will solely be responsible for building the wall, officials say, there were originally more than 200 entire proposals.
Meanwhile, Democrats across the spectrum are concerned that Trump may be overstepping his Presidential authority after it surfaced that “He would shut down the government if the wall isn’t built” a move that could have potentially crippling consequences.
The contracts for the racially-charged project were given to companies in Texas; Alabama, California and at least one other state. Meanwhile, anyone else feeling the comparisons between the Berlin Wall and The Mexican Wall?
