Trump administration plans border wall models in summer

A Donald Trump for President campaign sticker is shown attached to a U.S. Customs sign hanging on the border fence between Mexico and the United States near Calexico, California, U.S. February 8, 2017.

A look at the current border wall between the USA and Mexico in Nogales.

Vitiello said Tuesday that the agency has entered the second phase in evaluating contract proposals.

"CBP now faces an aggressive implementation schedule to satisfy its requirements under the President's Executive Order", the report said. Included in that is $1.6 billion for "bricks and mortar construction" and $1 billion is for infrastructure and technology.

"And this way, Mexico will have to pay much less money", Trump said.

The requests from Customs and Border Protection, the parent agency of the Border Patrol, said vendors should submit designs that make it essentially impossible for a person to climb the wall or gain access with a ladder.

"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.

But Vitiello said Tuesday that prototypes for different sections of the wall are on schedule to be delivered by September, despite some setbacks. "There'll probably be more than one or two of them there at the same time but we'll have to sequence it so they're not in each other's way", Vitiello said, per the Guardian.

Vitiello acknowledged that there are at least 130 miles along the border where a wall would be impractical, because of natural barriers such as lakes, rivers and a mountain range.

"The wall itself is an archaic notion", Robles said. "To have operational control, we also need technology".

Four to eight companies will get the contracts for the prototypes and have 30 days to finish them, according to Ronald Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner at Customs and Border Protection, Fox News reports.
