President Donald Trump said that the partial USA government shutdown was likely to continue unless Congress gave him money for a wall on the Mexican border. Thus, parts of the 2018 budget (including Customs and Border Protection funding) were set to expire on September 30, 2018. Others said border security could include a wall, fencing and high-tech monitoring.
House aides point out that bills with very similar language all passed with bipartisan votes in the Senate last fall, either on the floor or in committee. Trump promised that Mexico would pay for the wall while campaigning, but has since insisted on using US taxpayer funds, even partially shutting down the federal government, to beginning new construction.

The agency said that "work required for the protection of life and property will continue, as will any work related to spectrum auctions, which is funded by auction proceeds".
On March 23, 2018, the President signed HR 1625, a 2018 budget allotting about $1.3 billion dollars to Customs and Border Protection to build border barriers that allow agents to see through to the other side - like the steel bollard designs now in use in several places along the border.
