Trump's Coming to San Diego to Visit His Beloved Border Wall

Senate Intelligence Committee Richard Burr and ranking member Mark Warner talk during a hearing about Russian interference in U.S. elections in Washington U.S

Trump has said he may travel to San Diego to inspect the prototypes, which range in height from 18 to 30 feet and combine different formulations of see-through steel bars, concrete slabs and metal spikes.

Trump's border wall, which formed a key pillar of his 2016 presidential campaign, has encountered much opposition, particularly over the growing cost and the timeline of construction.

His comments from the Maryland retreat come hours after a group of senators received a document detailing the administration's border security plan, which includes asking Congress for nearly $18 billion to construct border fencing, despite Trump saying Saturday, "Mexico will pay, in some form" for the wall. During the campaign, he called for a contiguous wall along 2,000 miles of the border, something even the Border Patrol union does not think is necessary. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, said Monday. In the end, though, all 54 Democrats in the Senate supported the provision in hopes of realizing a bigger goal - providing a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants. "So it's important to reduce those vulnerabilities for our security's sake", she said. "Whether we call it a fence or call it a wall, it acts as the exact same thing - a physical barrier that makes it more hard to enter the United States illegally". John McCain told CNN in February 2017.

"One of the things we are discussing very powerfully is drugs pouring into this country and how to stop it, because it's at a point over the last number of years ... it's never been like this", he said.

"The debate over a wall goes back decades". Today, they demanded an additional $18 billion in funding for the construction of a border wall.

But Democrats have been pushing for a permanent DACA solution in exchange for funding the government.

The cross-border event came under scrutiny last month after it was discovered that one of men selected to participate in the cross border event - a US citizen who used his three minutes to Wednesday his worldwide girfriend - had been charged with drug smuggling.

Trump seems to be using the wall as some kind of bargaining chip. "These are people who are here in Texas and they're his constituents". That's in addition to funding for the southern border wall, a deeply unpopular idea among Democrats.

But Democrats have long drawn a line in the sand on the wall, defeating funding it at every turn so far. That's $33 billion that you, and I, and everyone you know, and everyone you don't know in this country paid into taxes because we actually believed that by paying our taxes this country was going to take care of is, and instead Trump wants to spend 33 billion of those dollars on a border wall that will literally do absolutely nothing to solve the fake problem that he believes exists.

"We want the wall", Trump said Saturday at a press conference on the sidelines of Camp David, where he huddled with GOP leaders and a handful of Cabinet officials on agenda items to come.

The Customs and Border Protection document calls for a total of $33 billion in new border spending, including $18 billion for the wall, $5.7 billion for technology gear, $1 billion for road construction and maintenance and $8.5 billion for 5,000 new Border Patrol agents, 2,500 border inspectors and other personnel, the USA official said.
