Senate Republicans introduced a bill that would put a $1.6 billion down payment on “physical barriers” at the border – a win for Trump’s border wall.
Senate Republicans included $1.6 billion for “physical barriers” at the border – largely seen as funding for Donald Trump’s border wall – in a homeland security spending bill released this week, according to The Washington Times.
From the Times‘ Stephen Dinan:
The border wall remains the top immigration priority for President Trump, according to a recent “Immigration Principles & Policies” document the White House released. The document was, in part, a response to Chuck Schumer’s and Nancy Pelosi’s premature victory laps on an immigration deal with Trump.
A different bill, that passed the House Homeland Security Committee in October, included $10 billion for Trump’s wall.
