The US House of Representatives approved a provisional budget to allocate $ 5.7 billion to build a wall along the border with Mexico.
217 congressmen voted “for”, “against” – 185. Now the document must be approved by the Senate.
During the election campaign, US President Donald Trump promised to build a wall on the border with Mexico to stop the flow of illegal migrants. The American president stressed that he would refuse to sign the draft budget if he did not include the cost of building the wall.
In turn, representatives of the Democratic Party said they would not approve the budget with the cost of the wall.
Earlier, Trump said that the wall on the border with Mexico will be beautiful and “artistically decorated.” According to the American leader, the construction of the wall will help solve the problem of illegal migration from Mexico.
