The House on Thursday passed a $790 billion spending package for fiscal year 2018 that funds the military and other security-focused departments, as well as a portion of the financing needed to complete 74 miles of a wall along the southwestern border.

The legislation garnered opposition from Democrats who opposed domestic spending cuts made in the bill as well as the $1.6 billion added for building the border wall, which was a top campaign promise made by President Trump.
