inhauscreative/iStock(WASHINGTON) — The top four negotiators leading the charge on the border security talks on Capitol Hill just emerged from their meeting and announced: “We have an agreement in principle.”

All four of the top appropriators appeared to be on board in making the announcement.

The tentative agreement comes just four days ahead of another potential partial government shutdown.

The agreement addresses the border wall, detention beds, and other major issues, but additional details were not released.

Asked if the White House supports the agreement, Sen. Richard Shelby said, “We think so, we hope so.”
