Why have one “big, beautiful” border wall when you can have eight?
Earlier today, President Donald Trump tweeted a timelapse video of the border wall prototypes being built in San Diego.
Prototypes complete, the next phase is underway: U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have begun physically testing and evaluating the walls. Tests will include trying to scale and breach the walls with jackhammers, saws, and hydraulic tools.
Each of the eight potential walls are 18 to 30 feet high; four are made of concrete, four of “other materials.”

The only wall and bars we want to see are the ones that will be trumps prison
Please get this raging fascist out of office.
I would like to see no border wall. The one that costs us nothing, has no effect on the environment or diplomacy. The one that has the same effect it currently has on immigration and terrorism (which is coming from within the country not outside) and the same effect on drug runners (which is none at all). I want no wall as it is an ineffective, inefficient, highly expensive, undiplomatic, land grab which will have disastrous consequences for the environment.
The one that keeps the Trump family out of the united state
We don’t need a wall. We need better procedures to deal with the problems. Putting up a wall never solved anything. Only makes things worse.
NONE. Boarder crossing arrests are down in the Trump administration. Why waste limited tax dollars building a wall.
Vote NO on funding the border wall.
No wall. I find it terrifying to be fenced in or out. It reminds me of east and west Germany. Please don't do this. Immigrants are not a threat to us. Our fears are the threat to our freedom, our democracy and our human kindness.
Can we get a temporary wall built around the White House so that the lunatic Trump cannot get out? We can remove the wall once a sane person takes over as President!
Absolutely no wall! What a waste of tax dollars. So many better ways to spend tax money.
Waste of taxpayer money Stop the crap now
We do not need border walls. They are proven to be ineffective and insufficient. What we really need is immigration reform.
Those border wall samples are adorable. How can we pick just one? Let’s keep them all, just as they are, and no bigger. They can be exhibit one in the museum that will be devoted to Trump’s incompetence, bigotry, and profligacy.
None ... I don't see a wall being considered for the Canadian border by our wonderful ( sarcasm) president... just serves to illustrate how racist he is
No new wall. We already have walls and fencing that covers most of our southern border. Any new wall is just a waste of money. We need immigration reform and enough agents and monitoring to prevent illegals entering, in a humanitarian way, and allow those in who qualify for humanitarian reasons. A nation has the right and responsibility to control it's borders but it must be done logically and in a humanitarian manner. And, the problem was created to begin with by both parties...The GOP for cheap labor for businesses and the Dems for a voting block...not taking into account migration from violence or other reasons.
No border wall! The wall is totally unacceptable. First of all, it is not necessary, secondly, it will not work. In addition it is a huge expense that we cannot afford. The money will go to cronies of the current administration and will not benefit the American people at all. Put the money towards funding CHIP. The proposed wall also damages the environment and would destroy Big Bend National Park. No Wall!
I am only for a wall that surrounds and cuts off the Manchurian, his sons, Dumb and Dumber, & his daughter, Complicit and her husband, Voldemort, Jr. from the world and the country . . .
Walls are inhumane. They should never be tolerated. The Berlin Wall was a stain on humanity as is the Great Wall of China. We all inhabit this planet and must learn to get along. Shame on close minded people.
There should absolutely not be a border wall. This is a waste of our nations money. Why don’t we use the money that you have allocated for a border wall to reinstate the Chip program? Make America Great Again instead of building a wall maybe?
A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS DON’T WANT A WALL!! There is no way that Mexico will pay for that wall. So what does that mean? American tax payers will have to pay for it.
