FILE - In this Feb. 5, 2019 file photo a Border Patrol agent walks towards prototypes for a border wall in San Diego. The Trump administration on Wednesday, Feb. 27 plans to demolish eight prototypes of the president's prized border wall that the government built near San Diego one year ago.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump will seek $8.6 billion in his new budget to build the U.S.-Mexico border wall, two administration officials said Sunday, setting up another showdown with Congress, which has resisted giving him more money for his signature campaign promise.

The request would more than double the $8.1 billion already available to the president after he declared a national emergency at the border in order to circumvent Congress once lawmakers refused his funding demands. That standoff led to a 35-day partial government shutdown, the longest in U.S. history.
