“includes 316 miles of new construction and 407 miles of replacement or secondary fencing”

Another government spending bill with a due date of January 19th is rapidly approaching. Democrats want a deal on DACA and Trump wants funding for the wall. Neither side shows any signs of backing down.

Samuel Chamberlain reports at FOX News:

White House seeks $18B to extend border wall over next 10 years

The Trump administration has asked Congress to set aside $18 billion over the next decade to install or replace more than 700 miles of the barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

The proposal by U.S. Customs and Border Protection would extend the barrier’s coverage to 970 miles, nearly half the distance of the southern border. It includes 316 miles of new construction and 407 miles of replacement or secondary fencing, a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the matter told the Associated Press.    :snip:
