A House panel is set to advance legislation that would provide $5 billion worth of funding for a southern border wall.
The House Appropriations Committee will vote next Wednesday on the 2019 Homeland Security fiscal bill.
The proposed bill would provide funding for an additional 200 miles worth of a new physical barrier.
It allocates over $300 million for nearly one thousand additional ICE and border patrol agents.
It also establishes a plan to secure total scanning of the border within five years.
The bill will likely advance out of the Republican-led committee, but will likely face strong Democrat opposition on the floor.
