Conservative allies of President Donald Trump are redoubling their efforts to demand funds for his wall amid reports by U.S. Customs and Border Protection that estimates 1,809 illegal border crossing attempts occur every day at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard reports:

So far, there have been some 66,000 attempts this year, and America First Policies said that another attempt occurs every 48 seconds. It based its numbers on estimates from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Experts have estimated that about half of all illegal entry attempts succeed.

The truck began driving by House and Senate office buildings Wednesday morning. For the next seven days it will follow a loop from the Capitol to the White House.

The ticker is also on the homepage of America First Policies. 

The right-wing nonprofit has also launched nationwide television and digital ads to bolster its advocacy campaign.
