Not Concrete? Just a steel panel fence? Here are Trump's actual wall prototypes

Of the chosen prototypes, four are made primarily from concrete – as specified in an early tender – while four more are built from other materials.

They include two designs by Alabama-based Caddell Construction, which proposes a concrete wall with a thicker lower portion, and a version with a solid top and a transparent bottom half.

WG Yates & Sons from Philadelphia also has two shortlisted prototypes – one metal and one concrete – while the material used for KWR Construction's partially see-through version is currently unidentified.

Fisher Sand & Gravel's solid concrete barrier, Texas Sterling Construction's suggestion topped with steel mesh and spikes, and ELTA North America's plan that looks like a radiator round off the list.

Cost is also likely to play a determining factor in the decision. A bill recently approved in the House that pledged $1.6 billion (£1.2 billion) towards the wall's construction stalled in the Senate, while Trump's initial claims that Mexico would cover the costs are continually denied by the Mexican government.

The US president also previously said that he himself could "design or negotiate" a cheaper option for the wall if necessary, and later suggested that the design could incorporate solar panels to help foot the bill.

In Central America, many homes are surrounded by walls topped with broken glass embedded in concrete. Maybe they could get some of the migrants to build one.

Any 'wall' built by the military would involve a cordon sanitaire, a large minefield, lots of concertina wire, and interlocking machine gun positions. Supported by mortar pits and indirect firebases 10km away.

I bet his base would stick with him forever if he proposed land mines.

They would need to adjust the bouncing bettys to account for the reduced height of the women/children.

I seriously think that one of the DuPonts has a wall like this somewhere in Delaware. I remembering seeing it as a child and being shocked, and I'm pretty sure that my folks said it was a DuPont home.
