Contractors Start Building Border Wall Prototypes

The remaining companies, save Maryland-based ELTA North America, which was selected to build the alternate materials border wall, are based in Houston, Texas and Sierra Vista, Arizona, the latter being located a few miles from the U.S. Mexico border.

Federal contractors have started to build prototypes of the wall, which will be funded by the U.S., despite Trump's pledges that Mexico would foot the bill.

Homeland Security said it began construction Tuesday on the prototypes for President Trump's new border wall. "Our multi-pronged strategy to ensure the safety and security of the American people includes barriers, infrastructure, technology, and people".

The House has approved the money, but the Senate has yet to take up the bill, and Democrats have announced they will try to derail any legislation that includes border wall money. The walls are to range between 18 and 30 feet high and succeed in one prevailing goal: "deter illegal crossings in the area in which they are constructed". He has also appeared to acknowledge he won't require border wall funding to be part of a possible deal to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. During the president's speech in Alabama Friday night, he talked about final choices being made with respect to the wall.

With construction of wall prototypes nearing, county officials agreed law enforcement needed more authority to keep expected protests peaceful. "So you need to have a great wall but it has to be see-through".

"We'll continue to provide safeguard of the border, continue to make our communities safe".

"The border wall is a stupid idea", Councilman David Alvarez said. The parking ban, which started Tuesday, will extend to November 10, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The prototypes are created to test out new approaches, materials, strategies and technology as Homeland Security pushes forward with Mr. Trump's goal of a border wall. In fact, the prototypes can be disassembled after construction. Hiram Soto, the group's communications director, explained his organization's position.
