Politics Odds: How High Will Trump’s Border Wall Be?

On January 25, Donald Trump signed an executive order called “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements.” The Department of Homeland Security has thus been directed to start building a 2,000-mile wall on the border between the United States and Mexico. You can bet on this wall; props are available under the Politics menu at Bovada Sports.

How tall will they build the wall between the US and Mexico? When will they start building? And will they have an official ribbon-cutting ceremony? All these Donald Trump border wall specials are available on the politics market at Bovada Sports. The over/under on the wall’s height is 37.5 feet.

The first prop asks what the proposed height of the border wall will be, with the over/under set at 37.5 feet. The second asks when construction will begin: before or after Independence Day, 2017. You can also bet on whether there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony. At press time, NO is the favorite at –140.

The executive orders that Trump signed were written mostly by advisers Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller, and contain fuzzy language that makes the orders difficult to parse – or even carry out. Trump said during his presidential campaign that the border wall would be 35-45 feet tall, and that Mexico would pay for it. Mexico has already declined, which means Trump will have to come up with $15-25 billion in public funds. House Speaker Paul Ryan says Congress will have an appropriations bill ready this spring.
