States consider funding the wall for the president

From the Associated Press: Montana’s Senate president is proposing the state give more than $8m to help build Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the Mexican border.

 

At least one other state, South Dakota, is considering voicing support for Trump’s wall. But Montana, which last year faced a massive budget shortfall, appears to be the first to propose spending its own money on the project.

 

Scott Sales, a Republican, says his proposal is a “small token” to show border security “is of vital interest to all citizens regardless of what state they live in”.

 

House Minority Leader Casey Schreiner, a Democrat, says he’d like to see Sales focus on building Montana’s infrastructure.
