Pete Sessions: Trump's Funding Bill May Include Money for Wall

Texas Rep. Pete Sessions said congressional lawmakers could include money for President Donald Trump's proposed wall on the border with Mexico in a bill to fund the government — even though questions remain about the structure.

But he warned it would likely eliminate any support from the Democrats.

"It would be a Republican-only bill," he said in an interview on CNN's "New Day."

"I'd like to see us all fund the government. I'd like to see this be a circumstance once again where we understand what the wall would mean and where," Sessions, the chairman of the House Rules

He conceded there are unanswered questions about the wall.

"I have yet to see the plan from the White House, or the secretary of homeland security, that shows where and what that wall would look like," Sessions said.

"In Texas it is a difficult issue because the question is: 'Where would you put the wall?'

"We don't know enough about the actual plan even though Republicans at least are for securing our border."

The Hill noted lawmakers have until midnight Friday to pass legislation to avoid a government shutdown. It said Trump has refused to say whether he would sign a spending bill that does not include funding for the border.
