    ^ I'm not paying attention to Trump Jr and the Russians. To me it's unimportant and a diversion.

    Okay, if you say so but both links look the same to me. At least some work has started on building the border wall.

    People pass border wall prototypes as they stand near the border with Tijuana, Mexico, Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017, in San Diego. Companies are nearing an Oct. 26 deadline to finish building eight prototypes of President Donald Trump's proposed border wall with Mexico. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull)







    My favorite so far is the one with the wide base because it looks sturdier and is less likely to topple over in heavy rains and harder to dig tunnels under.

    Trump’s border wall prototypes to undergo testing

    Eight prototypes for President Trump's proposed border wall will soon undergo testing to determine how well they stand up to breach attempts, The Associated Press reports.

    With the prototypes complete, they will undergo a 30-day wait period to let the concrete dry and harden. After that, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) personnel will put them through tests to see whether they can be easily flouted by people seeking to cross the border.

    "Can it be climbed, can it be dug under, can it withstand cutting tools," acting CBP Deputy Commissioner Ron Vitiello said, according to the AP.

    The testing period will last up to two months, the AP reported. During that time, workers will take sledgehammers, pickaxes and other tools to the walls to test their resilience and effectiveness.

    Vitiello said that officials could opt to combine aspects of several designs after the testing period, meaning that there may be no clear winner in the bid to build the border wall.

    Even after the testing period, however, construction on the actual wall itself is a ways off. Congress has yet to approve funding for the project, and multiple lawsuits have already been filed seeking to block the wall from being built.

    Trump vowed on the campaign trail to build a massive wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and signed an executive order in his first week in office authorizing its construction.

    But the proposal has been among the president's most controversial, and many lawmakers have raised questions about the cost and efficacy of the project.

    It's good to see some progress being made on the border wall. Any projected dates for beginning construction?

    Congress hasn't appropriated the $20 billion needed to build it so no, there is no projected beginning date unless Mexico has made a payment I'm not aware of.

    That actually isn't a bad idea. Once upon a time we had chain gangs and worked criminals from dusk til dawn. And in my opinion we still should. Arbeit macht frei / work will set you free.

    Yes I'm glad progress is being made.
    Sorry I don't know when they'll begin construction.
