Summary

But Trump eventually relented and signed a short-term funding package that expires in days.Over the weekend, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said the administration would secure the border, one way or another.“We'll take as much money as you can give us," he said on "Fox News Sunday," referring to Congress, "and then we will go off and find the money someplace else legally in order to secure that southern barrier."Mulvaney added Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that regardless of what money lawmakers provide, Trump will "do whatever he legally can to secure that border."On Monday night, a bipartisan group of congressional negotiators announced they had reached an "agreement in principle" to avert another shutdown and further fund border security, though it would not include money for a concrete wall.The agreement would provide nearly $1.4 billion for new border fencing, which could include steel slats and other "existing technologies," and an additional $1.7 billion for other Homeland Security priorities like new technology and more customs personnel, multiple sources told NBC News.
