“There will be a wall cam, and it’ll launch early next year,” an unidentified senior White House official involved with the project told The Post. 

But the CBP and the Army Corps of Engineers have objected, saying that construction companies don't want other firms to see what they are doing, four sources told the newspaper. Officials are also reportedly concerned that U.S. crews would be seen on camera violating Mexico's sovereignty because they sometimes cross the border to move their equipment. 

If the cameras are placed in certain areas without wi-fi, they will also need their own connectivity as well as people to help keep the lenses pointed toward the construction, the Post noted. 

According to the newspaper, Kushner sees the live stream as a way to show that progress is being made on the wall's construction. Trump and others have also reportedly expressed a desire for photos and videos that the president can post to Twitter.
