President Trump's border wall coming to Laredo?

President Trump “Mexico Will Pay for the Wall”

President Trump made a border wall between the US and Mexico one of his campaign's promises, and while the issue has repeatedly been kicked down the road, it appears that the President will pull out all the stops in order to get funding for a border wall, including offering to protect undocumented immigrants.

"Yes, I believe Mexico will pay for the wall", Trump said.

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.

Speaking from Camp David after a meeting with Republican leaders, Trump said he wants the program, which has prevented the deportation of young undocumented immigrants who were brought into the country as children, to remain.

Wind chills dip below zero in Central NY; advisory issued
With similar values expected, more wind chill advisories in at least parts of the region are certainly fair game. The NWS urges residents within the affected counties to bundle up in warm attire including gloves and hats.

Trump is also asking for changes to the legal immigration system. In September, President Trump shut the program down and gave Congress six months to come up with an alternate policy. Sen. The Administration seeks that the Capitol approves 33 billion dollars to increase security measures in the mentioned area and another 15 billion in order to acquire new technologies, build roads and hire personnel.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the wall would be "first and foremost" in any package that includes new protections for DACA recipients. At one point during his campaign, Trump estimated it would cost $10 billion for the entire 2,000-mile border, NBC News reports.

Mexico has steadfastly rejected Trump's demand that it pay for the wall and few doubt that US taxpayers will foot the bill if the wall is built.

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