No New Border Wall for President Trump Under New Federal Spending Bill

Fence along the U.S.-Mexico border.

President Trump’s repeated pledge to build a new border wall has fallen through the cracks under a federal spending bill wending its way through Congress.

But the budget, which is expected to be voted on by Friday, includes a modest $1 billion increase in discretionary spending for Homeland Security.

Nevertheless, Trump’s administration said it’s using $146 million to replace vehicle barriers with “pedestrian fencing,” another $146 million to replace current pedestrian fencing and $49 million to install 35 border gates.

The spending plan expires on Sept. 30.

Trump blamed Democrats for threatening a government shutdown if a new wall was included in the budget.
