Rep. Crenshaw: Wall Crucial Part of Border Security
Rep. Crenshaw: Wall Crucial Part of Border Security
Donald Trump is standing firm on his demand for billions of dollars for the wall
03 January, 2019, 03:11
"It could be a long time", Trumptold reporters during a Cabinet meeting, "or it could be quickly". "We're talking about border security".
The $5 billion Trump is seeking would cover only a portion of the money needed for a border wall, a project estimated to cost about $23 billion.
Schumer said he implored Trump to reopen the government while they debated their differences over the border wall. And we try to say, 'You're black, you're brown, you're gay, you're straight, you're a woman, you're a man.' The reality of it is there's no juice in that kind of campaign. They said Senate Republicans would be "complicit with President Trump" in continuing the shutdown if they choose not to move forward with the House Democratic plan.
Trump complained that he had been "lonely" at the White House during the holiday break, having skipped his getaway to Mar-a-Lago in Florida. "For some reason they don't value this idea of border security". He also criticized Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, for visiting Hawaii.
"We can go through this all back and forth - no", Pelosi added.
"Our question to the president and to the Republicans is why don't you accept what you have already done [in order] to open up government?"
By midday Wednesday, Trump said he was open to working on a path to legal status for so-called "Dreamers", young immigrants brought to the U.S.as children, which has been a key demand by Democrats in negotiations to end previous government shutdowns. Funding for Trump's pet project, a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, has been the sticking point in passing budgets.
The new Congress will gavel into session on Thursday, with Democrats taking over the majority in the House of Representatives. Instead, Trump spent the first hour and a half of it complaining about a variety of issues, such as former Defense Secretary James Mattis' performance and the late Sen.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and top House Republicans Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Steve Scalise, R-La., attended the meeting in the high-security enclave of the White House, which typically is used to handle sensitive information. Republicans under retiring Speaker Paul Ryan all but gave up trying to the muscle the conservative House Freedom Caucus in line.
The last time Schumer and Pelosi met Trump at the White House, on December 11, it turned into a weird televised squabble during which Trump claimed he would be "proud" to shut down the government over the wall, and insisted he would take ownership of any shutdown.
"We have given the Republicans the chance to take yes for an answer", Pelosi said. They planned to pass them as soon as the new Congress convenes Thursday. "If you build a 30-foot wall from El Paso to Brownsville, the 35-foot ladder business gets real good".
The Fiji-born police officer is "the absolute poster child for why immigration works if done legally", Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson emphasized Thursday night during an exclusive interview on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle".
But he seemed to shift tactics later in the day, appealing to Pelosi.
It was unclear if the meeting would lead to a breakthrough in the standoff over a funding dispute that centers of Trump's demand that $5 billion in funding for a wall on the Mexican border to be part of any spending measure.
