But many Democrats, reluctant to concede to the president on his signature issue and determined to take a hard line in opposition, have persistently questioned whether it constitutes the "national emergency" that Trump has declared.
Still, questions remained how tariffs would fit into the countries' deeply intertwined trading relationship, particularly as Trump and his counterparts in Mexico and Canada work to get their legislatures to approve a newly renegotiated free-trade deal, called the USMCA, to replace the Bill Clinton-era NAFTA agreement.
"I am looking at an economic penalty for the 500 Billion Dollars in illegal DRUGS that are shipped and smuggled through Mexico and across our Southern Border". Trump has asserted he can use his powers as chief executive to transfer an additional $6.7 billion to wall construction.
Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, after touring the southern border with President Trump in Calexico, Calif., on Friday, said he is more convinced of the need for "immediate action".
Both the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said their detention facilities are so overcrowded, they have had to release the apprehended migrants into the interior of the country before their cases are resolved by the extremely overburdened immigration courts.
The Republican president's latest pronouncements, including a threat to impose auto tariffs on Mexico, are in response to a rising number of migrants, many of them families with children, travelling northward from Central America through Mexico and to the US border.
"I never changed my mind at all".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called the proposal "a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy". The Republican Party has no plan to deal with climate change other than just attack the people looking for solutions.
Although not as drastic as completely shutting the border, a 25 percent tariff on Mexico-made vehicles would still have a serious impact on the auto industry. "And a lot of things are happening". Vitiello, who has served as acting ICE director since June 2018, was pushed by Trump to lead the agency in an official capacity.
While arrests of criminal aliens have continued to fall the past two years, Trump assured his audience that "there is indeed an emergency on our southern border". Jenny Flores, a 15-year-old El Salvador native, was held in what her advocates said were substandard conditions, contending she was strip-searched in custody and housed with men.
He also promised extra military sources for the border.
"The asylum program is a scam", Trump said.
BUT, I know a bunch of folks who do.
Protesters who had gathered near the barrier flew a balloon depicting Trump as a baby. And as Trump landed in California, the state's governor ripped the president's push for Congress to pass legislation that would tighten asylum rules to make it harder for people to qualify.
"His words show a total disregard of the Constitution, our justice system, and what it means to be an American".
Trump traveled to Calexico, California, where he'll be dropping by a section of what his administration is calling new fencing that will stop the surge of migrant families coming to the U.S.in recent months. For more on the president's visit and what's next. Most of the fencing was built during the administration of George W. Bush, and there have been updates and maintenance throughout other administrations.
Mr Trump's administration has not, however, put up any walls in any places along the 1,954-mile border where no barriers existed when he was inaugurated.
