President Trump's border wall coming to Laredo?

President Trump's border wall coming to Laredo?

According to Congressman Henry Cuellar, the Trump Administration has started talks about putting up 130 miles of wall or fencing along the border in the Webb County area. "I have a very good relationship with Mexico".

"But Mexico will pay".

Mexico has repeatedly stated that it will not pay to build the wall.

The Trump administration is providing one of its most detailed blueprints yet - how the President hopes to pay for upgrades at the California-Mexico border. "But yes, in some form, Mexico will pay for the wall".

This would bring total coverage to 1,552 kilometres, or almost half the border.

On Saturday Trump said that if the wall doesn't get funding, he could refrain from signing legislation protecting dreamers - the hundreds of thousands of young people brought to the country illegally as children.

Apple Might Buy Netflix: Citi
Analysts reckon there's a 40% chance that Apple could buy Netflix due to a corporate tax cut granted by US President Trump. The company is also developing its own scripted video series which will star Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston.

Democrat and Republican senators have been negotiating for months on a deal to protect Dreamers while increasing border security. On Twitter, the senator called the White House's $18 billion request "outrageous", but said the bipartisan negotiations would continue regardless.

Republicans want action on Daca to proceed separately from budget negotiations but Democrats are hoping to tie the two in a rare moment of leverage for the minority party. "With this demand, he seems to be heading in that direction", Durbin said in a statement.

Democratic lawmakers have already rejected that compromise, and the standoff could lead to a federal government shutdown.

Durbin is now working with four other Senators, three of whom are Republican, on a deal that will protect DACA while also beefing up border security, but it appears Trump's demands could stall talks. The White House and lawmakers in both parties agree that Dreamers should be protected but remain divided over the details of a plan.

Cornyn, in an interview on Fox News on Friday, said Trump would demand that an immigration deal address the visa lottery system and chain migration that unites family members.

Trump will host a bipartisan meeting early next week to discuss the issue.
