Trump's eight border wall prototypes getting torn down

Eight border wall prototypes that were built in San Diego, Calif., in late 2017 will be torn down for a second barrier being built behind the main wall.

Customs and Border Protection told reporters Friday the eight barriers, which cost as much as $2.4 million to construct, will come down soon.

During a trip to the San Diego sector in October, Border Patrol agents told the Washington Examiner they would either incorporate the eight prototypes with the new barrier or take them down and just have one uniform wall.

Six companies were tasked in September 2017 with building eight prototypes. Caddell Construction Company, Fisher Sand & Gravel Company, Texas Sterling Construction Company, and W.G. Yates and Sons Construction Company built solid concrete walls, while Caddell, Yates, KWR Construction, Inc., and ELTA North America Inc. built prototypes using "alternate materials."

Most of the initial construction cost between $350,000 to $500,000, the Washington Examiner previously reported.
