Trump administration plans border wall models in summer

Prototypes for President Donald Trump's U.S. -Mexico border wall proposal are set to be built later this summer, according to the agency who handles U.S. border security. The acting deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection's said Tuesday that four to eight companies will get contracts for prototypes in San Diego. The bidding process is now underway and Vitiello said between four and eight designs will be chosen for the final round.

A look at the current border wall between the US and Mexico in Nogales. Vitiello did not say why the prototype construction has been delayed from its original June construction date, per the Union-Tribune.

Firms are expected to complete construction by September, within 30 days of their selection, Vitiello said. Of that amount, $1.6 billion is for "bricks and mortar construction" and $1 billion is for infrastructure and technology, such as roads needed to access construction sites and surveillance equipment.

DUP leader in bid to finalise 'totally transparent' agreement with Theresa May
There were some warnings last week that crisis talks aimed at restoring powersharing may not be resolved by the June 29 deadline. With the support of the 10 DUP lawmakers, May would have a majority if all her lawmakers support her.

"This way, Mexico will have to pay much less money", Trump said during a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, repeating a campaign promise that Mexico would pay the United States for the wall's construction. Trump spoke about renegotiating NAFTA and building a border wall that would produce solar power during the rally.

Earlier this month, Trump mentioned building the wall with solar panels.

"Thanks to the funding provided this year by Congress and funding provided in 2018, we will construct gates and border walls in areas prioritized by the Border Patrol and that will make a real difference for agents on the front line", Vitiello said. "I don't think we're just going to be able to solve border security with a physical barrier because people can come under, around it, and through it", Cornyn said, according to The Times.
