US House bill allocates $1.6 billion for Berlin … er, border … wall

Source: The Hill

"The House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday released a bill allocating $1.6 billion to begin construction of a physical barrier along the U.S. border with Mexico, one of President Trump’s central campaign promises. The bill funding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for fiscal year 2018 also negates one of Trump’s central promises, that Mexico would pay for the construction of the wall. … Conservative [sic] lawmakers in recent days had begun warning that they would pull their votes from a budget and spending plan that failed to fund the wall."
