Mexico border wall very important tool to stop drugs

As for the wall, White House officials are still touting the drop in crossings at the U.S. Mexico border as one of their biggest accomplishments.
The White House is confident in the direction of the talks and an announcement is expected soon, Spicer said, although he declined to say specifically whether Trump would sign a bill that did not contain money for border security and the wall. She called the wall "immoral, ineffective, unwise" and said it would deter spending on other needs such as education or infrastructure. But with the 100-day milestone looming, the White House is pushing them to help President Trump tick off a major campaign promise. Leading Democrats have said they would support such a measure only if talks are progressing.
Passing bills governing funding to avoid a shutdown appeared easy task just weeks ago, but new stumbling blocks have arisen in recent days as Trump has added new demands on items like the border wall and increased military spending. "I promise, we don't do that", Trump said, and praised Haley for doing a "fantastic job".
Trump said during his campaign that Mexico would pay for the structure, estimated to cost perhaps tens of billions of dollars.
Grassroots organizations that work on the issue have voiced opposition to the larger structure that Trump and his supporters want. "But history shows us that border enforcement has been much more effective at changing the when and where of drugs being brought into the United States rather than the overall amount of drugs being brought into the United States".
Trump again on Monday hammered its importance on Twitter, but stopped short of threatening a veto: "The Wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)!"
Over the weekend, he tweeted, "Eventually, but at a later date so we can get started early, Mexico will be paying, in some form, for the badly needed border wall". Trump has announced a rally in Pennsylvania that day.
The White House said Monday it feels "very confident" that the US government will not shut down later this week in a funding dispute, even as it echoed President Donald Trump's call for inclusion of money for construction of a wall along the Mexican border that opposition Democrats say they are against.

Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan were embarrassed last month when they had to pull their "Obamacare" replacement bill off the floor without a vote as it became clear it would fail. The call came ahead of a briefing the White House is reportedly holding Wednesday with all 100 members of the Senate.
There are also Republicans who aren't enthusiastic about funding the border wall at all, unless it were paid for up front and through significant cost-saving mechanisms.
At issue is current fiscal-year funding to keep the government running through the end of September. "What we want to do is make sure that people from Washington that just come in and maybe spend an hour or two hours don't think they know the border better than we do". He added that "it'll be enough in the negotiation to move forward either with construction or the planning.to get going on the border wall and border security".
