    Hello, everybody.

    I was wondering if the highlighted part at below is grammatically correct and natural.
    Would you explain about that?( It is from a BBC article.)

    As wall discussions labour on, Mr Trump plans on sending more than 3,700 active troops to the US-Mexico border to help agents with security efforts this month. With more than 2,000 troops already at the border, the new deployment would top November's mid-term election-time numbers of 5,900.

    Thank you.

    English - England
    It’s fine.

    wall discussions = discussions about the wall
    labour on = proceed with difficulty / grind on / drag on
