WASHINGTON – The attempt to finance the federal government for the fiscal year and the termination of the loan gives President Donald Trump much less money than he was seeking to build a border wall with Mexico.
The business hammered Monday night provides nearly $ 1.4 billion, not the $ 5.7 billion demanded by the president and were at the center of the dispute that triggered last month's record close.
The agreement provides for 55 miles of metal slats or other types of new shielding, not a concrete wall. The fence would be built in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas.
The pact includes money for other border security measures, including advanced screening at entry points and customs officers.
Aides has revealed some details under conditions of anonymity because the agreement is provisional.
