"You can fry an egg on that wall", he said, referring to the barrier's ability to absorb heat - a design choice aimed at making the barrier too hot for illegal migrants to climb.

Washington state's attorney general has filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump over his plan to shift more than $3.6 billion in military construction projects approved by congress to help build a wall along the US border with Mexico.

Ferguson filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court. The barrier also boasts a truly unique feature, according to the president.

President Donald Trump capped a two-day trip to the West by penning his signature in magic marker on the San Diego wall at the Mexico border on September 18, 2019.


"We think we can get it close to 500 miles" by next year "depending on terrain conditions", he said.

Later, while flying to the White House on Air Force One, a reporter asked Trump about what he signed on the wall. I autographed one of the bollards.

Ferguson says his office has won 21 cases on various issues against the Trump administration, and lost none.


Flanked by top Homeland Security officials he has urged to take controversial measures to curb migration, President Trump touted newly constructed barriers during a visit to California's border with Mexico on Tuesday.

The president said his administration is now building or replacing "very large sections of the wall" and it is happening "rapidly".

Democrats have complained that Mr. Trump repeatedly promised to make Mexico pay for his trademark wall, only to raid critical military projects for funding.
