The First Prototypes Of Trump’s Wall Are Complete, And It’s A Terrifying Reminder That It’s Really Happening

“These concrete prototypes will serve two important ends,” a CBP spokesperson said. “First, given their robust physical characteristics, like reinforced concrete, between 18-30 feet high, the concrete border wall prototypes are designed to deter illegal crossings in the area in which they are constructed.” The prototypes come in various shapes and include features which will seemingly create an “impenetrable” fortress for the US. “Second, the concrete border wall prototypes will allow CBP to evaluate the potential for new wall and barrier designs that could complement the wall and barrier designs we have used along the border over the last several years.” the CBP spokesperson added. “As the border security environment continues to evolve, CBP will continually refresh its own inventory of tools to meet that evolution.”

Large construction projects are not without danger, and, as these prototypes were being built, the first border wall accident took place when a construction worker fell down a 40ft hole at its construction site. This just get even more outrageous.
