GOP seeks to revive border wall funding bill in next Congress

The House on Tuesday passed a $1.1 trillion border security bill that will provide $1 billion for the construction of a wall along the entire 2,000-mile border with Mexico, a GOP source told POLITICO.

The bill, which passed the House 217-206, would also provide $3.6 billion to pay for a border fence and border sensors, and $400 million to build a new border station at the southern edge of the U.S.-Mexico border.

The House also passed the Senate’s border security funding bill for $1 trillion.

The GOP-controlled Senate is expected to take up the measure as early as Thursday.

But the White House and some GOP senators have said they won’t accept the funding.

President Donald Trump has been critical of the bipartisan funding, which is expected by many to be passed along party lines.

“If I am elected president, I will stop funding this illegal wall,” Trump tweeted earlier this month.

The Republican-controlled House also rejected a bill earlier this week to fund the construction and maintenance of a new, 10-mile fence along the border.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the bill “simply isn’t good enough.”

She added that “anybody who thinks this wall will be built and completed in the first year, or even in the second year, should think again.”

Pelosi said she was “shocked” to learn that $1trillion is “not enough to finish the job” and that the bill is a “fantasy” to fund a wall.

Democrats and Republicans have been trying to hammer out a compromise that would fund the wall as soon as possible, after Congress adjourns on Oct. 16.

Democrats want a wall that includes fencing and sensors, while Republicans want a fence that doesn’t include fencing.
