Trump Wants $18 Billion For Border Wall Expansion

Trump Wants $18 Billion For Border Wall Expansion

The request could jeopardize bipartisan talks aimed at getting an immigration deal.

"It's outrageous that the White House would undercut months of bipartisan efforts by again trying to put its entire wish list of hard-line anti-immigrant bills-plus an additional $18 billion in wall funding-on the backs of these young people", Durbin said.

Part of a broader $33 billion border security package, the wall funds include $9 billion over the first five years and $8.7 billion over the next five years, according to a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) memo described to WSJ.

"This is not going to get us the whole wall we need, but it's a start", she said. "With this demand, he seems to be heading in that direction".

An administration official said that the document from the Department of Homeland Security that features the $18 billion request only covers one aspect of Mr. Trump's immigration priorities and was delivered to Capitol Hill to meet a specific request from negotiating team members.

Lawmakers have been trying to hammer out a deal on how to extend legal status for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought to the USA illegally as children after Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program a year ago. Trump announced a year ago that he would be ending the Obama-era program that protects them, but gave Congress until March to come up with a legislative fix. When they returned to work in Washington this week, they still had not received a list.

Conceding that any eventual deal will need Trump's blessing to win over Republicans in Congress, they laid out a list of border security measures Friday that they hope would allow Democrats to negotiate a deal they could attach to a bill to continue government spending after January 19.

The Trump administration is preparing to ask Congress for $18 billion to build President Donald Trump's envisioned "big, handsome wall" along the U.S. -Mexico border. The document specifically calls for the construction of more than 700 miles of new barriers along the border. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the plan has not been made public.

On Saturday, congressional Republican leaders are due to huddle with Trump at Camp David, the presidential mountain retreat, to discuss 2018 legislative priorities.

"We must protect our Country at all cost!" he wrote. The president met with Republicans at the White House on Wednesday, but the meetings at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, are created to come up with a clearer strategic approach. It's unclear if this funding would be part of any governmentwide spending package that's now being negotiated in Congress. They're expected to produce the framework for a deal next week. He set a March deadline for Congress to act. Republicans are deeply concerned that their majorities in the House and Senate may be in jeopardy.

President on Friday said he wanted two major concessions in exchange for legal protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who came to the United States as children.
