    Bill allocates $1.6 billion for Trumpís border wall

    The House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday released a bill allocating $1.6 billion to begin construction of a physical barrier along the U.S. Southern border, one of President Trump’s central campaign promises.

    Conservative members in recent days had begun warning that they would pull their votes from a budget and spending plan that failed to fund the wall.

    House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) went so far as to tell Breitbart News that Trump would not sign a spending measure if a wall were not funded, though the White House has not commented on the matter.

    In total, the bill allocates $13.8 billion to customs and border protection. That includes the $1.6 billion for the wall, $100 million to hire 500 more border patrol agents, $131 million for new border technology, $106 million for aircraft and sensors and $109 million for nonintrusive inspection equipment.

    It also adds $619.7 million to Immigration and Customs Enforcement over current levels, for a total of $7 billion in spending.

    I'm glad to see some funding for the wall that might make it into law, but I'd like to see much more than 1.6 billion to kick off this 10-20 billion dollar project!
