Congress negotiators finish drafting border security bill: aide

U.S. lawmakers late on Wednesday completed writing a border security bill that was expected to deny President Donald Trump’s request for $5.7 billion to help build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, with the Senate and House of Representatives expected to vote on the bill Thursday. The aide added that the Senate would first vote on the bill sometime on Thursday. If it passes there, the House would then vote on final approval that evening, which would clear it for signing into law by Trump by a Friday deadline.
