Here’s a close look at the eight border wall prototypes just completed; which one will keep America safe?

The prototypes in competition to be chosen as President Trump’s wall along the US-Mexico border have been completed.

The eight models of concrete and steel, ranging from a brick-like look to a sharp metal edge, are spaced 30 feet apart near the San Diego, California border.

Competing companies had until October 26 to finish the prototypes in hopes of being chosen the winner and fulfill Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall along the 2,000-mile Mexican border.

Costing the government up to $486,000 each, the structures have various shapes and thicknesses as well as colors ranging from gray, tan or brown.

It is not yet clear how the winner will be chosen and if the president will weigh in on any of the choices.

Guidelines for the bidding companies called for the structures to be between 18 and 30 feet high as well as be able to stand up to at least one hour of force from battery-operated tools, sledgehammers, torches, and more, according to the Daily Mail.

At one point during an NBC report at the location, a “group of asylum seekers, migrants not from Mexico” jumped over the existing fence.

They reportedly turned themselves in to Border Patrol agents on horseback.
