Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], June 28: The United States' Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will begin construction of prototypes for President Donald Trump's proposed wall along the Mexican border this summer in the San Diego area.

"Our planning gets us to construction for the prototype process at the end of summer", Ron Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner of CBP, said on Tuesday.

Interestingly, the border wall, if it is completed, will not actually span the whole US-Mexico border, as natural borders, such as high mountains, deep canyons and bodies of water provide enough of an obstacle to slow undocumented immigrants down enough for the border guard to handle them effectively, Vitello said. Once given notice, they will be expected to finish construction of their prototypes within 30 days, with some likely to consist of reinforced concrete and others of alternative materials.

"The border wall was the signature promise of Trump's campaign and the most visible initiative of his presidency, yet has been allowed to fall behind schedule", Donnelly stated.

Vitiello declined to say whether solar panels would be incorporated into any of the prototypes but said contractors were encouraged to innovate and noted that some companies had suggested they might include the technology.

In January, Trump signed an executive order calling for the homeland security to "begin immediate construction". "I have talked about Rio Grande Valley as being one of the busiest and active areas on the border".

Mr. Vitiello said that suggestion has not trickled down to the designers.

Earlier this month, California Assemblyman Tim Donnelly wrote in Breitbart California that the Trump Administration was behind schedule.

"The wall will be a great help, and it will happen; believe me", the president told reporters.

Trump, during a rally in Iowa last week, floated the solar panel idea as a self-funding means for the wall.

"We're thinking about building the wall as a solar wall, so it creates energy and pays for itself".

CBP has submitted requests for money in the 2018 budget to fence in 60 more miles in Texas, and replacing 14 miles of existing secondary fencing in San Diego.

The U.S. border with Mexico now contains 654 miles of fencing, according to Fox News. The goal, he added, is to have them built by September near the San Diego border.

How a wall along the full border with Mexico will be funded has yet to be determined.
