Border Wall Requirements Released by Trump Team

Border Wall Requirements Released by Trump Team

The White House has released early guidelines for the wall at the southern border of the country, and it sounds like it will be everything President Donald Trump promised to the American people.

According to The Washington Times, which viewed contracting documents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the wall would be tall, impenetrable and aesthetically pleasing.

The documents stated that the wall design should be “physically imposing in height,” at least 18 feet high, but with the goal being 30 feet. Additionally, the wall must go at least six feet underground.

CNBC also reported that other specifications included that the wall must be extremely difficult to penetrate, stating that it must take at least an hour for anyone to cut through with a “sledgehammer, car jack, pick ax, chisel, battery-operated impact tools, battery-operated cutting tools, Oxy/acetylene torch or other similar handheld tools.”

The guidelines also stated that the wall, which would run 2,000 miles along the Mexican border, would be pleasing to look at — from the U.S. side.

The contracting documents also called for designs that would work on sloping areas, which seemed to point to the fact that the wall would also run along mountainous terrain.

Other specifications for the wall included 25- and 50-foot automated gates, according to CNBC.

According to The Washington Times, the White House budget for the wall called for about $1 billion to begin construction and more than $2 billion in fiscal year 2018.

The project will be overseen by the Department of Homeland Security, which is accepting proposals for construction until March 29. Decisions will made based on prototypes that will be built in the San Diego area.

It’s good to see a president following through on his word — something we haven’t seen from the Oval Office for a long, long time.
