By Mark MolnarPublished Oct 09, 2019 07:56:55A bill to build a border wall between Mexico and the U.s. has cleared the House and Senate and is headed for President Donald Trump’s desk.
The Senate on Thursday approved the bill, which was introduced by Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., in a largely party-line vote.
The bill, if signed into law, would be the first major wall Trump has proposed on the border with Mexico since he took office in January.
The administration has repeatedly vowed to build the wall and Mexico has repeatedly refused.
The Border Patrol has said it has been inundated with more than 400,000 applications to build wall prototypes, and that it expects to receive at least 3 million requests to build prototypes.
The House bill would provide $5 billion in supplemental appropriations for fiscal 2018 to be used for the wall.
The Senate bill would not provide any supplemental appropriations.
In a tweet Thursday, President Donald Trumps said he would veto the House bill if it reaches his desk.
If he does, it will be vetoed, I will say.
It would be terrible for our country, the world and our economy.

The border between Mexico, where about 7 million people live, and the rest of the United State is porous, porous enough that people who cross can be caught and detained.
It is a political issue, but also a security issue.
A wall would be a massive step toward creating a physical barrier, but it would not stop people from making it across.
That is because people can be taken across.
A lot of the time they are caught and are taken to the U, where they are held in detention facilities for days and days at a time, sometimes for weeks.
They don’t get a lawyer or they don’t have the chance to appeal their cases, they are not able to go to court to fight for their rights and their rights are violated, their rights were violated.
They’re being exploited, and they have to be taken care of.
Mexico is paying the price.
Mexico’s foreign ministry on Friday called the bill “a threat to our national security.”
The White House has said that the U-turns could be because the president is not in favor of the wall’s construction.
He wants the wall built, but the administration is also looking for ways to avoid paying the bill.
The border wall was first proposed in the Senate in December and was later approved by the House.
Trump has promised that the wall would cost between $20 and $50 billion.
His proposal to build it has not been approved by Congress, but Trump has said he is open to spending money on the wall as long as it does not add to the cost of building it.
