The eight bits of wall, each a 30-foot square, are being removed to make way for a border barrier construction project that is replacing 14 miles of fence and adding a little more than a mile of new structure. @ LA Times
Eight prototype designs of President Donald Trump's proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border will be demolished in San Diego, U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed Friday.
The border-security agency has not released details about its timeline for the demolition, but construction crews have begun work in the area to replace wire-mesh secondary fencing with taller, 30-foot-tall bollards. @ AZCentral
As the Trump administration prepares to potentially declare a national emergency to jumpstart construction of a wall along the U.S.’s southern border—as well as possibly using storm aid funds to do so—the viability of the wall itself has come under fire. In a photo obtained by NBC News, one of the steel bollard border wall prototypes in Otay Mesa, California, was easily breached using an off-the-shelf saw. @Archpaper
President Donald Trump says he plans to call the heads of U.S. Steel and other steel companies to come up with a new design for the barrier he's insisting must be built along the southern border. @MSN.com / AP
