Trump administration proposes $18b for border wall extension

  • The border extension would not come cheap

But members of Congress have not yet agreed to spending any money on the wall, and Mexico has repeatedly said it won't foot the bill. "I have a very good relationship with Mexico. In some form, Mexico will pay for the wall".

The proposal by Customs and Border Protection calls for 316 miles (505 kilometers) of additional barrier by September 2027, bringing total coverage to 970 miles (1,552 kilometers), or almost half the border, according to a USA official with direct knowledge of the matter.

The administration's plan, per the document, is to almost double the amount of fencing along the border, from 654 miles now to around 1,000 in total.

Support for the border wall in Congress remains tepid, and Trump's insistence on linking the controversial project to the Obama-era DACA program - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals - could complicate a deal aimed at shielding these young immigrants from deportation.

At Camp David, Trump convened his cabinet and Republican leaders to discuss, among a laundry list of legislative priorities, immigration.

At the time of the repeal, both President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions claimed that the "Dreamers" were lawbreakers, and that "virtually all" the "top legal experts" believed that DACA was unconstitutional. So we have to get rid of the lottery system.

The subject came up during a sit-down meeting with GOP lawmakers at the White House on Thursday.

Now, Trump is using the DACA card to force the Democrats into a position of surrender on funding his administration's demands for the border wall.

The episode prompted a shutdown warning from Durbin, with government funding scheduled to run out January 19 and a long-term budget will require Democratic votes.

'This is not going to get us the whole wall we need, but it's a start, ' she said.
