I sure hope those prototypes are "transparent"...the danger of being hit by a 60 pound bag of "stuff", thrown over the wall, is incredibly concerning. We must be able to see what those greezers are up to on the other side!!No official approval for P. Trumps Wall, so no money allocated for construction, and due to the cost and experts reports of more cost effective/ better security measures than "a wall", most doubt it will ever happen.
This prototype money was pulled from existing CBP budget (already in place).
Estimates are around $38 billion....last I read, to as high as $60 billion.
These prototypes are now due to be studied and tested...another 12-18 months, plus CA AG has said they will sue, so there's that.
They have never completed the "border wall" that was approved under W BUSH 43.....as they ran out of money even for that one.
