On Friday, the Trump administration released details about the incoming border wall. Some of the requirements for the new southern border will include a “physically imposing, hard to penetrate, and aesthetically pleasing” wall.

President Trump’s border wall budget will begin with a $2.6 billion dollar bill to start construction on the wall. Trump believes the wall will cost around $12 billion total to finish the 2,000-mile border.

Contractors are currently making bids to work on the wall.

Some of the requirements from the Trump administration include:

• Reinforced concrete and “physically imposing height.” The government expects the wall to be at least 18 feet tall, but they would prefer for it to be about 30 feet in height.
• In addition to the height, no one should be able to climb the all unassisted, meaning there should also be “anti-climb topping features.”
• There should also be obstacles to prevent anyone from tunneling under the wall, meaning a barrier should go beneath the ground a depth of six feet.
• In terms of the depth of the wall, it should be able to withstand an hour of having people try to breach the wall with their fist, pick ax, shovel, or sledgehammer…

• The United States side of the wall, which will face north, should be “aesthetically pleasing in color, anti-climb texture, etc., to be consistent with general surrounding environment.” This also includes “the wall fittings and fixtures shall be secured on the north side of the wall to shield from external attack.”
• Finally, Trump called for the wall to include a “big, beautiful door,” meant to accommodate large vehicles with sliding gates.

Currently, these are the main features mentioned by the Trump administration, but it’s likely they’ll continue to share more details once contractors have been chosen.

    Ok make it the height you want but at the top should be electrical wiring of high voltage. The wall should have steel like arrow heads inbeaded into the cement facing towards Mexico. I would also have motion detectors on the wall . I would also use solar ,wind etc for power if all possible. That way it’s green power!

    This way if they try to climb or touch they injure themselves and if they use a ladder they will be electrocuted when they reach the top.

    I would drop leaflets in all city’s giving warning about the wall dangers ,I would also put up signs about the dangers.i would also make sure they know the U.S. Is not responsible for any injury they may or may not receive from the wall.
