SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Four out-of-state companies have been invited by the federal government to come to San Diego to build prototypes of a concrete wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, it was announced Thursday, August 31.

"The administration's misguided insistence that a border wall must be built is an affront to the just demands of border communities to revitalize and not militarize our region."
