President Trump's border wall coming to Laredo?

Trump and Democrats Working on Deal Over Future of DACA Recipients Before Program Expires

The funds would be used in the next 10 years in order to expand the fences in about 1,600 kilometers that now cover about 1,050 kilometers, which would mean coverage of about half of the US Southwest border.

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 U.S. as children, known as Dreamers.

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

According to Congressman Henry Cuellar, the Trump Administration has started talks about putting up 130 miles of wall or fencing along the border in the Webb County area. The Trump administration announced in September that it was ending the Obama-era program, but gave Congress several months to act before recipients begin to lose their protected status in March.

On Friday, the White House requested roughly $33 billion worth of stringent border security measures from Congress. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the plan has not been made public. At one point during his campaign, Trump estimated it would cost $10 billion for the entire 2,000-mile border, NBC News reports.

"I believe that Mexico will pay for the wall", President Trump told reporters at Camp David in Maryland, where he is meeting with Republican leaders.

The Democrats want to make DACA the focus of January's negotiations around funding the government, and Trump sees this as the flawless moment to throw in his border wall gambit.
