The budget also includes $8.6 billion for the completion of a wall to secure the southern border.
"I think the Democrats' arguing against border security is a losing argument for them", Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) told The Epoch Times. Now the only thing that people are going to witness is how the messages are going to appeal the voters. "This budget will balance in 15 years".
