Republicans were desperate to avoid another bruising shutdown.

A big USA flag along with three "finish the wall" banners lined the El Paso County Coliseum, making it clear immigration and border security were at the center of Trump's speech. The funding measure is through the fiscal year, which ends 30 September. The fencing will be built in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. Plenty of ad-libbed remarks were expected as well, the source said, as is always the case with the President.

"Our staffs are just working out the details", said House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y. El Paso had low rates of crime for decades before a fence went up on the border - and if anything, crime went up slightly after it was built.

Addressing thousands of people, many wearing his red "Make America Great Again" campaign hats, Trump said: "We need the wall and it has to be built and we want to build it fast".

In Washington, under the Capitol dome, Republican lawmakers worked diligently with those same Democrats on the kind of institutional Washington compromise that anchors the conventional politics Trump disdains.

Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton also came to El Paso and used the border as a prop for "big speeches on immigration policy" in their day, said Richard Pineda, director of the Sam Donaldson Communications Center at the University of Texas at El Paso. We must finish the wall", Trump said, leading the crowd through a litany of ills he associates with an open border: "human trafficking, drugs and illegal immigration.

The agreement also included curbing funds for Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention beds.

The agreement yielded curbed funding, overall, for ICE detention beds, which Democrats promised would mean the agency would hold fewer detainees than the roughly 49,000 detainees held on February 10, the most recent date for which figures were available. "Walls work", the president said.

The politicians hope to reach an agreement on Monday to allow time for the legislation to pass the House of Representatives and Senate and get signed by Trump by Friday, when funding for the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department and several other federal agencies expires.

"We can call it anything".

Republicans tentatively agreed to far less money for Trump's border wall than the White House's $5.7bn wish list, settling for a figure of almost $1.4bn, according to congressional aides.

O'Rourke headlined a protest across the street from an arena in which Trump is promoting his long-promised border wall between the United States and Mexico.

Many held up American flags.

The New Mexico governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, has said that she rejected "the federal contention that there exists an overwhelming national security crisis at the southern border, along which are some of the safest communities in the country". Sources told Fox News on Sunday that negotiations had broken down. That's the same number funded previous year, though the actual figure held is around 49,000. More than 6,500 violent crimes were recorded that year, the newspaper reported. But many in the city have bristled at the prospect of becoming a border wall poster child.
