Those measures would be paid out over a period of 10 years, and they include funding for technology, infrastructure, 10,000 additional immigration officers and a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

President Trump has been speaking a lot about border security recently. The $18 billion would expand the physical barrier on the US-Mexico border from its current 654 miles to almost 1,000 miles-about half of the total border.

Lawmakers face a 5 March deadline to find a legislative fix for the young immigrants after the Trump administration rescinded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or Daca, the Obama-era program that offered legal status to roughly 800,000 younger undocumented migrants.

"We all want DACA to happen but we all want great security for our country", Trump said. The funds, according to documents circulating in Congress, would pay for 723 miles of barrier - 316 miles of new construction, and 407 miles of upgrades in areas that are already fenced.

The White House has demanded that funds to build the wall are included in any legislation meant to help DACA recipients.

The Customs and Border Protection document calls for a total of $33 billion in new border spending, including $18 billion for the wall, $5.7 billion for technology gear, $1 billion for road construction and maintenance and $8.5 billion for 5,000 new Border Patrol agents, 2,500 border inspectors and other personnel, the US official said.

"I believe that Mexico will pay for the wall", President Trump told reporters at Camp David in Maryland, where he is meeting with Republican leaders.

"President Trump has said he may need a good government shutdown to get his wall", Sen.

The Trump administration is providing one of its most detailed blueprints yet - how the President hopes to pay for upgrades at the California-Mexico border.
