Trump vows cheaper border wall

In the internal government study, the US Department of Homeland Security said the contentious border barrier would take more than three years to build and the price could soar much higher than the $12-15 billion figure cited by Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan last month.

It is expected to be presented to Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, but its recommendations won't necessarily be taken into account.

The president also cited The Washington Times' report Friday that after a judge halted his extreme vetting executive order, the State Department surged admissions of Syrians, Iraqis and other refugees from the seven countries Mr. Trump is most anxious about in connection to terrorism.

The DHS report says construction would have three phases. The report seen by Reuters is the work of a group commissioned by Kelly as a final step before moving forward with requesting usa taxpayer funds from Congress and getting started on construction.

But Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and two former presidents of Mexico have emphasized the country will not pay for it.

Mr. Trump said the price of the wall, which would be built along the almost 2,000 mile border, would drop way down once he became involved in the project.

The report speculates that DHA would be funded by the Congress between April and May, giving them sufficient time to hire contractors and begin construction work by September.

The first phase would cover 26 miles of high-risk area near America's southernmost cities such as San Diego, California, and El Paso, Texas.

It also shows the United States government has begun seeking waivers to bypass environmental laws on building in some areas, started to work with contractors and is planning steel purchases for the project.

The document details a plan composed of 3 phases where the construction can begin along the 1,250 miles long border, and the challenges facing the construction, along with the cost estimate.

Trump told law enforcement officials on Wednesday, "The wall is getting designed right now". An independent estimate by a construction firm suggests that could easily run to $25 billion given uncertainties in the plan. "This wall will pay for itself many, many many times over".
