    The United States was to begin construction in Texas on Saturday of part of President Donald Trump's border wall designed to curb illegal immigration, which he calls a security threat. Running along four miles (six kilometers) of the 2,000-mile border with Mexico, the new section will replace existing fencing along the boundary between El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, US Customs and Border Protection said in a statement. "This new wall will be far more durable and far more effective in deterring would-be illegal entrants," Aaron Hull, Chief Patrol Agent in the El Paso sector, said in the statement....

    With the effort to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border seemingly stalled in Washington, the National Sheriffs' Association is looking to help break the logjam by raising funds for the project. The group has launched a crowdfunding website that it announced during a White House meeting attended by President Trump and 43 sheriffs from 35 states, the Charlotte Observer reported. We wanted to clear up some confusion - we received a couple emails regarding a possible GoFundMe account for the border wall associated with the National Sheriffs' Association.

    DEL RIO, Tex. — In this tiny town at the edge of South Texas brush country, a black steel fence runs along the Mexican border. About 15 feet high and topped by small metal spires that bend toward Mexico, it stretches west from a Border Patrol checkpoint for about a mile and a half. Then it stops. Where the fence ends, a creek snakes off the Rio Grande, up through a private ranch where cattle wander between the mesquite trees. There, beside the creek gully, a small black cylinder sits atop a metal pole, looming over the small trees. It...

    President Trump and congressional leaders have agreed to a border wall funding showdown after the upcoming November midterm elections and if he plays his cards right, it could result in $5 billion, more than twice what the White House initially sought. While appropriations bills are moving at the fastest pace in over 20 years, with many expected to be approved by Oct. 1, the start of the fiscal year, Homeland Security funding for the wall is likely to be delayed, said officials. Plans are already underway to approve temporary, “stopgap,” funding that will cover Homeland until its new spending is...

Traveling from Billings, Montana to Fargo, North Dakota aboard Air Force One, President Trump told the Daily Mail he possesses “two options,” when it comes to building the border wall: “We have military, we have homeland security,” he said.

    President Donald Trump said Friday that he's considering using military resources to finish construction of his long-promised border wall instead of relying on Congress to fund the project through the Homeland Security Department's budget. He also wouldn't eliminate the possibility of a government shutdown if Democrats continue to confound his efforts to appropriate money for the project on the U.S.-Mexico border. 'We have two options,' he told DailyMail.com aboard Air Force One as he flew from Billings, Montana to Fargo, North Dakota. 'We have military, we have homeland security.' He was asked specifically about using the Army Corps of Engineers...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that he expects a fight over funding for President Trump's border wall to happen after November's midterm elections. "The nine bills that we're going to put on [Trump's] desk before the end of September, which is the end of the fiscal year, deal with other substance but … also 90 percent of the federal budget will have been approved before the end of the fiscal year," McConnell said during an appearance on Fox News Wednesday evening. He added that Republicans "are in favor of the wall." "We still want to get funding...

    The Mexican secretary of foreign affairs on Tuesday pushed back after President Trump repeated his assertion that Mexico would pay for a wall along the border between the two countries. "We just reached a trade understanding with the US, and the outlook for the relationship between our two countries is very positive," Luis Videgaray tweeted. "We will NEVER pay for a wall, however," he added. "That has been absolutely clear from the very beginning." Videgaray's tweet came in response to comments Trump made during a meeting with FIFA and U.S. Soccer officials about the 2026 men's World Cup. Shortly after...

    President Trump on Tuesday seized on news that an undocumented immigrant was charged in the death of an Iowa college student to underscore his push for stricter immigration laws. "You heard about today with the illegal alien coming in, very sadly, from Mexico, and you saw what happened to that incredible, beautiful young woman. Should’ve never happened," Trump said at a rally in Charleston, W.Va. "We’ve had a huge impact but the laws are so bad," he continued. "The immigration laws are such a disgrace. We’re getting them changed, but we have to get more Republicans." Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24,...

    President Donald Trump's long-promised border wall between the US and Mexico could costs billions of dollars more than estimated, a new report from a government watchdog agency said on Monday. The report from the Government Accountability Office, a nonpartisan group that forms part of Congress' oversight arm, said that "key information" is missing from the plans. It further concluded that the US Department of Homeland Security "faces an increased risk that the Border Wall System Program will cost more than projected, take longer than planned, or not fully perform as expected." Factors like a varying terrain and land ownership had...

    President Trump suggested Wednesday that a government shutdown would help Republicans ahead of the midterm elections in November, adding that he would take the step if necessary to see his plan for a border wall come to fruition. In an interview with conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, the president called the issue of shutting down the government over obtaining funding for his border security program a "great campaign issue." "I actually think it would be a positive," Trump said Wednesday. "It's like pulling teeth, getting these guys [lawmakers] to get it done. And you have no idea how tough...

Trump is threatening to force a shutdown if Congress does not provide funding for his border wall.
