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

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

"What the American people do want, in overwhelming numbers, is to provide legal protection to 800,000 Dreamers and a path toward citizenship for them", he continued, referring to a common name for young immigrants who came to the USA illegally as children.

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.

A built in delay gives congress until March to come up with a resolution.

"We all want Daca to happen but we also want great security for our country", Trump said during the press conference, surrounded by members of his cabinet, the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, and the House speaker, Paul Ryan. So we have to get rid of the lottery system.

Ice could make travel unsafe on New Year's weekend
Any rain that is around on Sunday will likely transition into a wintry mix of freezing rain or snow by Sunday afternoon/evening. Once again, the GFS has been the wetter solution, while the European has been drier, but it still shows some moisture in place.


President Trump made a border wall between the USA and Mexico one of his campaign's promises, and while the issue has repeatedly been kicked down the road, it appears that the President will pull out all the stops in order to get funding for a border wall, including offering to protect undocumented immigrants. Trump has previously said there will be no DACA without funding for the border wall he promised during his campaign as well as changes to tighten the immigration system.

"As you know, we're negotiating NAFTA", he added. "In some form, Mexico will pay for the wall".

President Trump this week asked Congress for $18-B to pay for the 1st phase of The Wall's construction. "With this demand, he seems to be heading in that direction".

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".
