Trump administration proposes $18b for border wall extension

Speaking from Camp David after a meeting with Republican leaders, Trump said he wants the program, which has prevented the deportation of young undocumented immigrants who were brought into the country as children, to remain.

Trump has promised "a big, handsome wall" with Mexico as a centerpiece of his presidency but offered few details of where it would be built, when and at what cost.

05 de enero de 2018, 11:54Washington, Jan 5 (Prensa Latina) US President Donald Trump asked Congress for about 18 billion dollars to build the wall on the border with Mexico, revealed The Wall Street Journal today.

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

While numerous performances will be in Times Square, singers will be performing on the west coast and in New Orleans. Carey hit a snafu in New Year's Rockin' Eve 2017 when a backing track played by itself and she stopped performing.

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. As you know, we're negotiating NAFTA. "But yes, in some form, Mexico will pay for the wall". Durbin is now working with four other Senators, three of whom are Republican, on a deal that will protect DACA while also beefing up border security, but it appears Trump's demands could stall talks. Congress must pass a federal budget by 19 January to avert a partial government shutdown, and the vote will require Democratic support.

Durbin continued, "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".

'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".
