In a bid to stop construction of a new border wall proposed by President Donald Trump, Democratic Rep. Bill McCauley of Mesilla Park, New Mexico, said Tuesday that he is seeking a legislation to prevent the move.

McCauley told the local news agency Santa Fe New Mexican that in order to cease construction of the new wall along the U.S. - Mexico border, he will introduce a legislation.

Trump’s border wall proposal has amassed furor and admiration since his sojourn to become the president of the United States. The border wall became the hallmark of his campaigning days, helping him to win many hearts and votes. However, most deplored the suggestion to construct a wall that was said to curb the illegal immigration traffic and prevent drugs from crossing the border lines. It became an area of contention amid several lawmakers and people in the country. Not everyone sees eye to eye with the slated proposal.

Popular card game Cards against Humanity created a roadblock in the president’s plan when they purchased the land on the U.S. - Mexico border to thwart Trump's efforts.

The White House asked the congress to grant them $18 billion to construct the wall along the border, and to repair 700 miles of border structure. In a bipartisan meeting held at the White House on Tuesday, the president said the border wall must be part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals' (DACA) approval.

He said, “I think everyone agrees we have to have border security. I don’t think there would be anybody that says no.”

According to a statement from the White House press secretary, the meeting was held to discuss "reforms on four priority areas border security, chain migration, the visa lottery, and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy."

The DACA program prevents immigrant youths in United States from deportation. The program, introduced by the Obama administration, sought to protect thousands of immigrant children in the states. It has protected over 800,000 children from deportation, ABC news reported.

The Trump administration tried to rescind the program as part of their immigration reforms. On Tuesday, a federal judge in California declined the Trump administration’s proposal to end the program.

The judge said the lawyers representing the case for DACA had presented enough evidence to support their claims that the children will suffer irreparable damage if the court didn’t intercede on the Trump administration’s proposal, ABC News reported.

The ruling in favor of DACA program doesn’t bode well to the administration's plans to construct a border wall. In the conclusion of the bipartisan meeting, Trump tweeted, “As I made very clear today, our country needs the security of the Wall on the Southern Border, which must be part of any DACA approval.”
