A tentative deal was agreed yesterday between the Republicans and Democrats to avert another partial government shutdown this Saturday. But the agreement does not include the USD 5.7B funding for the border wall that Trump demanded.
No detail is provided for the deal yet. But based on unnamed source, there would be USD 1.375B in funding for new fencing along the southern border of the US. That is around the same amount the Congress allocated last year.
Also, it’s reported that only currently deployed design could be used for 90km of additional barriers, which might include steel bollard fencing.
