55 miles. In Political math factors that's equal to a completely secured border now.

Oh.. the same $1.3B the Dems offered in December, right before Shutdown 1?

Democrats, Republicans and the White House have until Dec. 21 to reach a budget deal if they are to avert a partial government shutdown, but talks are deadlocked over funding for the wall.

This sounds very similar to the DHS budget request submitted as part of the presidents budget last Feb:

'The FY 2019 President’s Budget provides crucial investments in U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) staffing, equipment, border infrastructure, and technology to enhance the overall border security capabilities of frontline operations. No single system can ensure security; security can only be achieved by employing the correct mix of resources. This budget will allow CBP to develop and deploy the correct mix of technology, capabilities, physical infrastructure, and people to detect, target, deter, and respond to threats at the border including the following key investments:
$1.6 billion for 65 miles of new border wall construction in the Rio Grande Valley Sector to deny access to drug trafficking organizations and illegal migration flows in high traffic zones where apprehensions are the highest along the Southwest Border.
• $223.0 million for the procurement of high-priority infrastructure, border security technology improvements, and aircraft acquisition to provide a layered defense at the border, and ensure CBP law enforcement personnel are supported with effective surveillance technology and equipment to improve their ability to detect and interdict illegal activity.
• $210.5 million to support the recruitment, hiring, and training of 750 additional Border Patrol Agents (BPAs). This is part of a multi-year initiative to hire a total of 5,000 additional BPAs as directed by Presidential Executive Order 13767 Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements. The new personnel will improve the integrity of the immigration system by adding capacity to interdict those aliens attempting to cross the border illegally.
• $382.1 million for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) to continue training personnel from over 95 law enforcement agencies government-wide, including an increase of $25.7 million over the FY 2018 President’s Budget for tuition and basic training costs associated with the training of the additional ICE and CBP law enforcement officers. Additionally, $85.6 million will support the construction and infrastructure expansion at FLETC for student housing, classroom, and practical training facilities required to train law enforcement personnel.'

If that's pretty much what it is, then its all good. The agencies ask for what they want, and congress gives them most of what they ask for, after doing their due diligence. That's the way appropriations work.

Hope it eliminates 10% of the Federal work force.

President Trump should declare a state of emergency, seal the border with federal troops as necessary, and build the Wall alone the entire border with Mexico.

He should sign it and move on. Nancy said not a penny so Trump can take it as a small victory. Invoke a national emergency after the money is spent to continue construction.

Let the Corps of Engineers have the job & get 200 miles instead of 55 miles for the same money.
