U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is asking for design proposals and prototypes of the U.S.-Mexico border wall envisioned by Trump.

CBP has offered two options on its website: one would be for a solid concrete wall, and another for a wall with a “see-through component” that is to the advantage of those on the north side.

Other requirements include that the wall should be 30-feet tall; the walls should be impossible to climb without a ladder; tunneling underneath should be impossible; the wall should be “aesthetically pleasing in color, texture, etc.”

Over 400 companies have expressed interested in submitting proposals.

Proposal submissions close at the end of March.
