Trump administration proposes $18b for border wall extension

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.

Trump has demanded a border wall in exchange for passing legislation that would shield from deportation hundreds of thousands of young migrants brought to the USA as children, known as Dreamers.

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.

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.

A built in delay gives congress until March to come up with a resolution. Jeff Flake, said Jason Samuels, a spokesman for the Arizona Republican.

On Friday, the White House requested roughly $33 billion worth of stringent border security measures from Congress.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the wall would be "first and foremost" in any package that includes new protections for DACA recipients.

Nielsen called the $3.2 billion requests for fencing during the administration's first two years a down payment.

"President Trump has said he may need a good government shutdown to get his wall", Dick Durbin, the No 2 Senate Democrat, said in a statement in response to the administration's proposed border plan.

If that work was completed, more than half of the almost 2,000 mile-border with Mexico would be lined with a physical barrier. President Trump has also promised to build a wall with Mexico as a centerpiece of his presidency but offered few details of where it would be built, when and at what cost.
