More than $3 million was spent to build prototypes for the Mexico-US border wall...and now they're being torn down.
A Customs and Border Protection official told CNN that crews were scheduled to begin tearing down them down;
"At this point, we have learned a lot from them, but we don't necessarily have a purpose or use for them anymore, and we will be bringing them down."
According to CNN, some reports suggest that the San Diego area prototypes did not do well in breaching tests, though results haven't been made public.
Recycled material from the prototypes will be used in actual border construction, however, none of the companies contracted to build the prototypes are performing any of that work.
