The Washington Post: The move would bring the total amount of federal funds allocated to border fencing to $18.4 billion under Trump, who made the border barrier a priority during his campaign for the presidency in 2016. He also pledged to make Mexico pay for the barrier, delighting crowds at his rallies.
The Trump administration has completed 101 miles of new barriers so far, according to the latest figures, far less than the 450 miles the president has promised to erect by the end of the year. But construction along the border — largely on land the federal government already owns — has been continuing even as legal challenges have aimed to disrupt it.
There are two things worth noting. The first, a wall is not being built. Trump is building fencng and barriers not the big beautiful wall he promised to build. The barrier, fencing being built is not being paid for by Mexico.
The cost is to the American taxpayer, no matter where the funds come from in the federal budget.
