Construction companies in San Diego are building eight prototypes of Trump’s border wall between Mexico and the U.S.
San Diego, Calif. Sept. 26, 2017; Companies break ground on San Diego as they begin building the prototypes for President Donald Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Six companies, including two from Arizona, began Tuesday to construct prototypes of a U.S.-Mexico border wall.
Crews began working on a strip of land near the border in San Diego, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency tasked with securing the nation’s borders.
The eight designs — four of concrete and four of alternate materials — are expected to influence the design of the wall that President Donald Trump has promised to erect on the 2,000-mile border.
It said in a news release that the prototypes ‘will inform future design standards which will likely continue to evolve to meet the US Border Patrol’s requirements.’
But the agency is also braced for massive protests and is beginning construction under tight security, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Already there are fears of protests as big as those at the Dakota Access Pipeline last year, the Los Angeles Times reported. Concrete barriers have been placed at access points to the construction site and chain link fences have been built across open land.
One area could be being designated a ‘free speech zone’ for protesters to congregate, the LA Times said.
Announcing the start of construction, Ronald Vitiello, CBP’s acting deputy commissioner said in a statement: ‘We are committed to securing our border and that includes constructing border walls.
‘Our multi-pronged strategy to ensure the safety and security of the American people includes barriers, infrastructure, technology and people.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The protesters could well be paid by contributions by billionaire George Soros who has recently been the backer of leftist organization across the nation.
