$1.375 billion for border wall funding included in COVID-19 stimulus package

Alongside the $900 billion COVID-19 stimulus package that Congressional leaders agreed to on Sunday is a $1.4 trillion omnibus appropriations bill that will fund 12 federal departments through September 2021.

Included in this bill is funding for another $1.375 billion for the construction of the border wall.

Senate Republicans insisted on including this funding to appease outgoing President Trump, Laredo’s Rep. Henry Cuellar said Monday. But he believes once President-elect Biden takes office in January, they’ll begin working on how the money can be reprogrammed and the existing construction contracts terminated.

The bill’s language does not specifically delineate the $1.375 billion funding, but rather calls for funding in “an amount equal to the amount made available” for construction of a “barrier system” in the 2019 appropriations act.

Cuellar noted that there is no definition for “barrier system,” and that this could ostensibly apply to lighting, river roads and cameras, for example, rather than a 30-foot wall.

The language specifies only that the money is meant for the southern border, but does not name any cities or sectors.
