President Trump: "Mexico Will Pay for the Wall"

President Trump is Securing America’s Southern Border

Democrat and Republican senators have been negotiating for months on a deal to protect Dreamers while increasing border security.

The Trump administration's planned "border wall system" would ultimately include 864 miles of a "new main wall and 1,163 of a replacement or secondary barrier", Politico reported, citing information in a five-page document it obtained.

"Yes, I believe Mexico will pay for the wall", Trump said.

Members of Congress involved in the immigration negotiations had requested the information from DHS, according to a DHS administration official. The White House and lawmakers in both parties agree that Dreamers should be protected but remain divided over the details of a plan.

President Trump is asking for $18 billion to fund a portion of his promised border wall in exchange for allowing hundreds of thousands of Dreamers-young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally-to stay in the country, the Wall Street Journal reports.


President Donald Trump's Department of Homeland Security has requested $18 billion in funding to complete a wall on a portion of the US southern border in an effort to stop illegal immigration, one congressional source and one USA official told NBC News on Friday.

Trump is basically saying that he will not fix granting "amnesty" to DACA recipients unless he gets the funding required for the wall and related expenditure. His priorities include tightening a family-based immigration policy that allows naturalized citizens and certain immigrants to petition for relatives to come to the USA and eliminating the Diversity Visa Lottery, a state department program that helps citizens of countries with historically low rates of immigration to come to the US. "With this demand, he seems to be heading in that direction", Durbin said in a statement.

So the funds Trump seeks from Congress would be enough to say that by 2027, just over half the border is walled off.

Trump will host a bipartisan meeting early next week to discuss the issue.

'Those are things that he's insisted upon, ' and Democrats would have to embrace them along with border security, said Cornyn.
