IAI subsidiary ELTA North America was one of six companies that built prototypes for a proposed new wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, the so-called "Trump Wall," in San Diego, California in 2017. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) tested the prototypes, and in July 2018, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report exposing extensive construction challenges with the prototypes. In the end, none of the prototypes was selected.
