Details of a presumably bipartisan border convention on security in Congress are being drafted after the White House announced that it will accept an agreement whereby President Trump receives only a fraction of the money he plans for his proposed US-Mexico Boundary wall has demanded.

. The deal would not only partially finance the wall government shutdown next weekend. Trump threatened to proceed with the closure, although Congressional Republicans are unlikely to have the stamina for further closure for which they were held responsible.
A White House official said that Trump would accept any agreement that emerged from the negotiations that there is not enough willpower among the Republicans to fight for the full financing of the border wall.
But even with a breakthrough in negotiations, Democrats insist that the money given to border security should not be just for the physical barrier

"Throughout the talks, Democrats have insisted that a border security compromise does not rely too much on physical barriers," said Evan Hollander, a Democrat spokesman who controls the Budget Committee on Budgets, told the Associated Press. "We will not agree to finance $ 2 billion of barriers."
The White House may still seek to obtain the additional funds for the Wall through executive measures, although such a move is likely to encounter resistance and legal action.
The negotiations also include discussions about the nature and location of the barriers. The question of how many beds the Federal Immigration and Customs Service might have for imprisoned migrants was also raised alongside some high-tech monitoring equipment and the number of employees.

Nevertheless, some GOP lawmakers believe that the details of the deal may be too much for Trump, and Rep. Mark Meadows said, "I'm not optimistic it will be something that the president can support. "
A two-sided deal is likely to pass without the votes of conservative Republicans demanding more money for the border wall, and progressive Democrats opposing funding from immigration authorities.
