Despite Mr Trump's repeated promises to build an actual wall, it might actually rely on surveillance technology and not actually be made using any physical structure, according to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly. On January 26th, Trump floated the idea that he would propose a 20 percent tax on imported Mexican goods to pay for the structure. The orders were signed at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2017 in Washington.
General Kelly added that it would not simply be just a wall but a "layered" defence to stop potential migrants crossing illegally into the United States.
When it comes down to the brass tacks, CNN reports Congressional Republicans have one major problem with Trump's wall - dollars and cents.
The administration, however, remains poised to forge ahead, announcing this week that it is preparing to begin construction on Trump's promised border wall with hopes of finishing the project within two years.
But Director of Research at Center for Immigration Studies Steven Camarota said "Mexico won't pay, the Mexicans will", as he played down the imperative of making Mexico pay. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has estimated that the wall would cost between $12 billion to $15 billion to build.
