Customs officers also intercepted almost $70 million in illicit currency, much of it headed back across the border to fill the coffers of Mexican drug cartels.

The proposal by Customs and Border Protection calls for 316 miles (505 kilometers) of additional barrier by September 2027, bringing total coverage to 970 miles (1,552 kilometers), or almost half the border, according to a USA official with direct knowledge of the matter.

It's unclear. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from NY, tweeted Tuesday that Trump's demand for a "completely ineffective" border wall was why they had been unable to reach a deal so far.

The White House in an internal budget document directed the Department of Homeland Security to reduce or delay funding for certain border security measures.

The Trump administration is preparing to ask Congress for $18 billion to build President Donald Trump's envisioned "big, attractive wall" along the U.S.

"The final border apprehension numbers of 2017, specifically at the southern border, undeniably prove the effectiveness of President Trump's commitment to securing our borders", said DHS spokesman Tyler Houlton, noting the numbers over the last year were 40% below the final year of President Barack Obama's tenure.

"We want the wall - the wall is going to happen or we're not going to have DACA", Trump said.

"We are going to be working on that very, very hard this year, and I think we're going make a big dent into the drug problem", he said. The New Mexico State Land Office oversees a patchwork of land holdings along the state's southern border with Mexico.

Trump's costing request to Congress is outlined in a previsionary plan, which the Customs and Border Protection agency at the Department of Homeland Security created for the group of United States senators.

"Nobody knows it better than them", he said.

Experts said the absence of hiring funds could potentially have the most impact on border security; the agents form a crucial line of defence against smugglers and terrorist threats. Democrats and some Republicans are pushing to have it preserved. "So it's important to reduce those vulnerabilities for our security's sake", she said.

"Yes, I do", he said when asked if he stood by Sessions continuing as attorney general.

Lobbyists and activists fighting to protect young immigrants, however, are less concerned with fencing than with making sure Democrats use their leverage on the upcoming spending bill to deliver a deal to protect Dreamers. They will check to see how well the walls prevent digging, climbing and any other strategies to break through.

Trump announced a year ago the cancellation of the DACA, but gave Congress until March to present a legislative measure to address the situation of current DACA beneficiaries.

McConnell suggested the deal could include an expansion of children's health care funding and expiring national security provisions, but he made no direct mention of the border wall.

It also foresees the replacement of 407 miles of secondary fence, said the official, who requested anonymity to make statements to Conspiracy Talk News, because the plan has not been released to the public just yet. "We want DACA to happen, but we also want great security for our country..." The program, which has helped thousands of people brought to the U.S.as minors to work and study legally, is incredibly popular.

The White House's other conditions are ending "chain migration" and the diversity lottery program.
