The wall along the border between US and Mexico, ordered by president Donald Trump, will cost as much as $21.6 billion. This was reported by Reuters referring to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security internal report.

As the agency reported, the document says that there would be a series of fences and walls. According to the plan, the border will be “sealed” in three phases of construction covering just over 2,000 km.

The works are expected to be finished by the end of 2020.

At the same time, press secretary of the White House refused to comment on this report, saying it would be “premature” to discuss any deliberative documents that have not been officially presented the head of state.
