Border wall prototypes just entered their final stage of construction along our southwest border in San Diego, CA. President Trump vowed to build a wall on our southern border with Mexico, and it seems like he is determined to fulfill that promise. The prototype construction was started last month, with crews given 30 days to complete their models.
Watch these latest construction videos from U.S. Customs and Border Protection:
Six companies were selected to build eight prototypes.
Four models are made of concrete and four are made from other materials.
The construction site is located near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry.
Once complete, the government will run a series of tests on each prototype, checking for anti-climbing, anti-breaching, and anti-digging capabilities, among other things.
President Donald Trump has made the border wall one of his top priorities.
But Congress will still have to approve the funding.
Crews only have 30 days to complete the project before testing begins to determine which one will work best to secure the border.
