Trump's border wall prototypes in San Diego to be removed

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

All eight border wall prototypes fail basic penetrability test

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
