Prototype Border Wall Construction to Begin This Week in San Diego

Prototype Border Wall Construction to Begin This Week in San Diego”

"This is a divisive time in our nation's history and frankly, we already have a border fence in San Diego, so I'm not sure why we were targeted to build the prototypes, but it is what it is today", Jacob added.

President Donald Trump's campaign promise to build a "big lovely wall" is in progress, with several companies ready to start construction on about half a dozen prototypes this week.

Among officials at the construction site Tuesday was Assistant San Diego police Chief Dave Nisleit and a Border Patrol spokesperson from Washington.

US border officials say the prototypes will help them determine designs for final infrastructure, which will help them stop illegal crossings and secure the borders.

It's expected that sometime this week construction of prototypes for President Trump's controversial border wall will begin. Eight of them will be made of concrete while the others will be made of "other material".

The San Diego City Council passed a resolution last week expressing the city's intent to divest from companies involved in the construction, financing and/or design of the wall.

"We don't want the wall and we don't want the prototypes, especially not now with the bad quake in Mexico", said Enrique Morones with the the Border Angels. "Moving forward with the prototypes enables us to continue to incorporate all the tools necessary to secure our border".

CBP said that each prototype will cost an average of $450,000.
