Democrats are unlikely to budget money for a border wall, and even if they do, legislators say that such an agreement would likely require Trump's immigration policy to be immigrated, eg.

Under agreement with Trump Friday, Congressional leaders are hired to set up a special Senate House conference committee to negotiate a border security agreement, which they hope will pave the way for all seven budgetary resources to around 25 percent of the government finance.
Trump warned at the Rose Garden on Friday that he could declare a national emergency to build the wall and bypass Congress altogether if the legislature did not submit a report by 15 February.

The clash between Trump and Pelosi over the border wall became so angry that it sometimes looked like a personal grudge. When Pelosi tried to pressure Trump by revoking his invitation to deliver the address of the state of the Union, he responded by canceling military transport for their planned congressional delegation trip to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan.

There were signs that the two parties were getting closer in the last week.
James Clyburn (D-S.C.), House Majority Whip, said Wednesday that Democrats could support $ 5.7 billion in border security, as long as none of this was spent building a physical wall.
