U.S. Customs and Border Protection has settled on finalists to design the proposed border wall with Mexico. However, the federal government is not revealing the names of the finalists or how many have been chosen. The agency previously said it would pick up to 20 finalists for contracts with expected values between $200,000 and $500,000.
The winners will build prototypes in San Diego near the Otay Mesa border crossing with Mexico. The prototypes should be around 30 feet long and 18 to 30 feet high. Plus, it needs to be impossible to scale without help and be impenetrable to sledgehammers and battery-operated tools for at least an hour. Not to mention aesthetically pleasing.
