President Trump is expected to visit the Golden State this month to check in on his baby – the border wall.

Controversy about the wall’s development hasn’t faded since the 2016 presidential campaign trail. Trump announced on Twitter Wednesday that he would delay the project’s development in California, but only until the whole wall is approved. His tweet came on the heels of a U.S. District Court Judge’s ruling which rejected lawsuits from the state of California and environmentalists accusing the Department of Homeland Security of illegally waiving environmental regulations for the replacement wall and prototype development. Trump had previously accused the district court judge, Gonzalo Curiel, of bias.

So what do the prototypes look like and what can we expect to see in the walls future development?
