Trump's steel wall eaily breached President Donald Trump has recently advocated for a "steel slat" barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border after earlier pushing for a concrete wall to stop the flow of migrants.

But steel slats may not be the "impenetrable wall" Trump promised on the campaign trail in 2016. A report from NBC News said that during a Department of Homeland Security test, steel slats were sawed through in one of the wall prototypes that the president reviewed in March 2018.

Most of the prototypes were solid concrete, but two featured steel slats. Trump had indicated he favored such a design when he reviewed the samples because border officials said they wanted to be able to see what was on the other side of a border barrier. He also said transparency could keep someone from being struck by large sacks of drugs thrown over the wall.
