Dozens of miles of President Trump's wall were constructed in 2018 along the border's most vulnerable sectors. Still, the wall has not received full funding from Congress.

Congress appropriated hundreds of millions to replace deteriorating border fencing in California, New Mexico, and portions of Texas.

Congressional Republicans did not meet the $25 billion requested by the administration, unable to overcome the 60 vote threshold in the Senate.  

A government shutdown over funding the wall has entered its third week with no end in sight.

Trump remains determined, telling lawmakers he will not sign any continuing resolution without border wall funding.

Self-sabotaging his central policy goal is the one issue the Republican base could abandon the president over.
