WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Republican Senator Richard Shelby, one of the congressional negotiators working on border security funding, said late on Monday that an “agreement in principle” had been reached.

Speaking to reporters after a meeting of negotiators, Shelby did not give an outline of the deal but said staff members will work out the details.
