(San Diego, CA) -- A non-profit arts group wants the border wall prototypes built near San Diego made into a national monument. The group, called MAGA, is headed up by a Swiss-born artist who has been collecting signatures for an online petition. Christoph Buchel says that the prototypes for President Trump's proposed wall are a collective sculpture and that the people elected the artist.
He argues they should be preserved as a reminder that even if it is never built, the idea of a massive border wall was considered politically viable. Trump and GOP lawmakers are seeking funding for a wall in budget negotiations with Democrats.
