Potential progress. Sounds like an actual compromise. woot! woot!


"The tentative deal includes $1.375 billion for physical barriers — a type of fencing that resembles the “steel slats” that Trump has specifically called for, according to a congressional aide briefed on the talks. It includes a total of 55 miles, which is just 9 miles shy of Trump’s last budget request."

so, after almost two months, we are back to essentially (details not released yet) the same deal as Schumer and McConnell had initially to avert a shutdown. I find that very interesting.
