The Trump administration on Tuesday said it would not prejudge whether funding for a wall along the U.S. southern border with Mexico must be part of any bill to address protections for children brought to the United States illegally.


Marc Short, President Donald Trump's legislative affairs director, told reporters that Trump's priorities included securing the U.S. border with a physical structure. He added the White House would lay out its priorities for a fix for the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, in the next couple of weeks.
