USA: Trump Asks For More Funds to Build Mexico Border Wall

Trump As Tantrum-Prone Toddler? It's Not Really News To The GOP.

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the second-ranking Senate Democrat, called Trump's plans - including $18 billion for a border wall - at the expense of months of bipartisan efforts, "outrageous".

The administration asked lawmakers for $18bn in order to add 316 miles of walls and fencing along the border and bolster 407 miles of existing barriers, according to a financial blueprint sent to senators by US Customs and Border Protection on Friday.

"I am not sure why President Trump wants to shut down the government over a multi-billion dollar wall that no one wants, is not needed and will not be paid for by Mexico", Sanders said in a statement. 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.

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.

An administration official confirmed the document was prepared at the request of congressional negotiators and said funding for the wall and other security measures must be part of any legislative package on immigration.

Trump said a year ago that he was ending DACA but gave Congress until March to deliver a legislative fix.

This would bring total coverage to 1,552 kilometres, or almost half the border.

The White House has demanded that funds to build the wall are included in any legislation meant to help DACA recipients.

President Trump this week asked Congress for $18-B to pay for the 1st phase of The Wall's construction.

Mexico has steadfastly rejected Trump's demand that it pay for the wall and few doubt that USA taxpayers will foot the bill if the wall is built.
