President Donald Trump‘s campaign promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border came one step closer Friday to becoming a reality.
The Department of Homeland Security‘s law enforcement agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, released two formal requests for prototypes of a southern border wall.
The RFPs shed additional light on the Trump administration’s plans for a wall, including its height, aesthetics and anti-climb features. The budget blueprint the White House released Thursday includes $4.1 billion for the wall.
