The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote this week on a bill that includes funding to start building President Donald Trump’s border wall.

The president’s request of $1.6 billion to begin the construction of the border wall along the United States-Mexico border is part of the spending bill for the U.S. Department of Defense and several other agencies. The money would pay for the construction of 74 miles of physical barriers, including fencing.

Congressman Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., is condemning House Republicans for including Trump’s border wall funding request in the defense spending bill.
