Key opposition Democratic lawmakers immediately vowed to block wall funding.
The White House's fiscal year 2020 budget proposes a five percent increase in defense, taking military spending up to $750 billion, up from $716 in the current fiscal year. That report projected muted economic gains in coming years, partly because of the fading impact of tax cuts and higher spending.
One senior administration official said the $8.6 billion in additional funding, combined with the money Trump is attempting to redirect with his national emergency declaration, would allow the White House to complete at least 1,160km of barriers - a figure that has always been a White House goal. The Senate is expected to vote this week on a House-passed resolution negating the emergency decree. The American Civil Liberties Union - one of several groups that may take the matter to court - has already said it intends to file suit over the national emergency declaration.
If Congress and Mr Trump fail to broker a budget package by the end of September, a series of government operations will again be shut down, less than nine months after a record partial closure shattered confidence and depressed the president's approval rating. When we started the conversation throughout a year ago, Democrats were saying there's no national emergency. "The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again", said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY. Fresh off the longest government shutdown in history, his 2020 plan shows he is eager to confront Congress again over the wall. The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again.
"We hope he learned his lesson", the duo continued, adding that the money should be spent on education and workforce development.
While President Donald Trump's new budget Monday reflects White House funding priorities, it has little if any chance of becoming law, as Democrats who control the House strongly disagree with what they consider the bookkeeping gimmickry accompanying it.
"I suppose there will be", he said. "We have a crisis down there".

The Trump White House issued on Monday a budget proposal for 2020 that includes the elimination of federal tax credits for electric vehicle buyers.
Warren Gunnels, Sanders' staff director, tweeted: "We don't need a magic wand or a genie to make public colleges free". Trump's request would come in his proposed budget for fiscal year 2020.
Kudlow, interviewed on "Fox News Sunday", conceded that the new request would likely mean a renewed fight in Congress over wall funding. Some of these recent budget deals have not been favorable towards spending.
Trump's budget proposal includes funds for hiring across federal agencies, including US Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Justice's Executive Office for Immigration Review, both of which have already had trouble filling vacancies. "However, the national debt - now more than $22 trillion - remains a grave threat to our economic and societal prosperity".
The White House proposal on military pay matches the 3.1 percent increase indicated in the U.S. Employment Cost Index (ECI) of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) that serves by statute as the major guideline for military pay. "No president has done more in two years to strengthen our military, restart our economy and reform our government - promises he made while running for office". Some of these barriers are replacing fences that had previously existed, and Democrats have routinely said Trump erroneously claims credit for building walls that don't exist or are far from being completed.
Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, warned that the debt load will lead to slower income growth and stalled opportunities for Americans.
