United States.- The US President, Donald Trump, insisted during a rally in New Hampshire that undocumented migrants pay the financing of the border wall through something called “redemption money”, without explaining what he meant.
The construction of border fences is being financed with 3,600 million dollars from the Pentagon, redirected by Trump under an emergency declaration last year.
They know who is paying for the wall, right? Redemption of illegal aliens coming. Redemption money is paying for the wallRELATED
held during a rally of his re-election campaign.
Media reporters such as Bloomberg said on Twitter that he was referring to remittances, although there is no indication that the money is paying for the construction of the wall.
In his budget plan, presented today, Trump asked Congress for $ 2 billion more to fund the fence, continuing with one of his main campaign promises and preparing another clash with the Democrats who control the lower house.
The White House would request $ 15.6 billion for the Office of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), an increase of 7 percent, and $ 9.9 billion for the Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE, by its acronym in English), an increase of 23 percent.
Trump would ask for a figure less than $ 5 billion for the wall he sought a year ago, which resulted in a disagreement with the Democrats and the government shutdown or “shutdown” for five weeks.
