The United States has a long history of prison labor, with advocates of the idea saying that putting inmates to work can help them learn skills that prepare them for their return to society after completing their sentences. Opponents contend that inmates are not fairly compensated.
In response to a request by the Trump transition office, the Department of Homeland Security last month identified more than 400 miles (644 km) along the U.S.-Mexico border where new fencing could be erected, according to a document seen by Reuters. The document contained an estimate that building that section of fence would cost more than $11 billion.

I still believe US presidents are selected by a very powerful group of people in the world...yes..the world... not just of the usa.
This wall ..if being built... was planned many years ago. If built it will be not for keeping people out, but for keeping people in. All that for the things to come.

Well the Reuters article says it's 400 miles of fence at a cost of $11 billion
We can probably assume it's similar to fences already found on the border
