The Trump administration plans to ask for $2 billion in new border-wall construction funding, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday, citing officials familiar with the planning.

The White House will officially release its budget proposal Monday.

The reported $2 billion request is far less than the amount the White House sought for border wall funding last year when the Trump administration asked for $5 billion for the wall, on top of $3.6 billion to replenish funding for military construction projects the administration shifted for border wall construction.
