President Donald Trump's Department of Homeland Security has requested $18 billion in funding to complete a wall on a portion of the US southern border in an effort to stop illegal immigration, one congressional source and one USA official told NBC News on Friday.
Mexico has steadfastly rejected President Trump's demand that Mexico pay for the wall and few doubt that U.S. taxpayers will foot the bill - if the wall ends up being built.
"I have a very good relationship with Mexico".
In return for the cash, the Trump administration will be expected to discuss a way forward for the so-called dreamers - illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. by their parents and know no other country. "We'll see how that goes". But members of Congress have not yet agreed to spending any money on the wall, and Mexico has repeatedly said it won't foot the bill.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., hit back at President Donald Trump over his demands for an immigration deal, saying recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), known as Dreamers, were not "bargaining chips", The Hill reported Friday.
DACA, which allows people brought to the United States illegally as children to remain under certain conditions, ends on 6 March 2018. Durbin is now working with four other Senators, three of whom are Republican, on a deal that will protect DACA while also beefing up border security, but it appears Trump's demands could stall talks.
The President met with Senate Republicans on Thursday to discuss ways to fix DACA.
