Trumps Wall
(If we are going to build it, then why not do it right and save money and resources while at it)

Not that I feel the wall should be going up, BUT, if it's to be constructed then why spend a lot of money when you don't need to?

The wall design I propose here is very inexpensive, easily repaired, offers storage space for the Patrol, and offers a surface on top where as the Border Patrol can actually Patrol the wall in a vehicle, be it a normal vehicle or an ATV.

My design utilizes Shipping Containers filled with OLD Tires and dirt. OR, any other materials that are available and hard to dispose of. Of course, nothing that has Radioactive Materials, explosives, or hazardous were it to leak. Used Tires, plastic, and any other difficult to dispose of materials however can be used. They would just be locked away with dirt inside each container.

As for Patrolling on top of the wall. A roadway might be considered, or just something poured on top of the wall that offers a stable yet smoother surface for the vehicles that might be used to patrol it. If given the option, I would propose using Solar Roadways ( so that the wall can also be a generator of energy.

As for safety for the top, on each side of the wall a barrier could be put as well to reduce the chance of a vehicle driving off the side. Or, perhaps even some kind of track system instead of a road whereas greater speeds could be achieved? The options for the TOP of the wall AFTER the wall is constructed are endless. Heck who knows. Perhaps even a HYPER LOOP TUNNEL could be put internally?

(The Interstate Highway standards for the U.S. Interstate Highway System uses a 12-foot (3.7 m) standard for lane width,). This permits for 2 vehicles to drive, passing each other as needed. The Wall I propose is 17-foot wide (two shipping containers wide). Not only can a vehicle drive down it, but two vehicles, each going the opposite way can drive along the top AND it can even have space on the sides for the barriers to keep the vehicles from driving off the edge.

Standard ISO shipping containers are 8ft (2.43m) wide, 8.5ft (2.59m) high and come in two lengths; 20ft (6.06m) and 40ft (12.2m). Extra tall shipping containers called high-cube containers are available at 9.5ft (2.89m) high.

If using 20ft long containers, and the wall were to be made 34 feet tall (4 containers high), and it was constructed with 4 containers wide at the bottom, then the next stack is 3 wide, then 2 wide, then 1 wide, the number of containers (at a cost of $1500 per container) would be only $1.5 Million in container cost. (1000 containers x $1500). Hell, even if the number of containers is x10, your still looking at only a cost of containers to be $15 Million. Donald Trump could pay for this himself even. (( PS. you can get the containers in 40 and 60 foot lengths as well)).

THEN, factor in the labor and the cost for the old used tires that will be put in them with dirt and you have a wall that is exceptionally cheap..
