Trump Considering “Steel Barrier” Instead Of Solid Mexico Border Wall

After pledging for years to construct a solid wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to combat illegal immigration, President Donald Trump appears to be backing away from that promise as he and his allies play down what the administration wants built – alternately referring to the planned wall as a fence, a “steel slat barrier” or a metaphor for border security.

The shift marks a tacit acknowledgment of retreat by the White House on one of its signature issues as it faces the reality of divided government in the new year and a partial government shutdown that is in its second week.
