House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) go way back: the two have socialized and worked together since Pelosi first entered Congress in the late 1980s.

"The Republicans are totally unified", Trump told reporters after that meeting. There is a crisis on the border and throughout the USA immigration system: it is being manufactured by the Trump administration and it won't be resolved by a wall.

Before the partial shutdown began on December 22, Trump said he would be "proud" to close the government over the issue of border security and would not blame Democrats. Hundreds of thousands of federal workers are going without pay, and government disruptions are hitting home with everyday Americans.

"The people out there want something to happen at our Southern border", Trump said.

"I think certainly I have expressed more than a few times the frustrations with a government shutdown and how useless it is, " Capito said Tuesday. Among Republicans, however, support for the wall is much stronger, with 77 percent approving and 54 percent supporting the shutdown as a means to that end.

Democrats accused the president of using the shutdown to gain political leverage, while forcing Transportation Security Administration officers, food safety inspectors and Border Patrol agents to work without pay.

"And he just got up and said, 'Then we have nothing to discuss, ' and he just walked out".

"He asked Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi, 'Will you agree to my wall?' She said no". But he did not mention that Tuesday night. "What we hear from Republican members and, frankly, quietly from many Democrat members is that when they see the scope of this crisis, when they see the facts presented to them, that they understand why the president is so adamant about doing something meaningful to advance border security".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed Customs and Border Patrol previous year apprehended almost 4,000 known or suspected terrorists at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Several Republican senators have said the government should be re-opened while talks continue over border security and Trump's demand for money to build the wall along the U.S. -Mexico border. "We've been in touch with those members and others", he said.

But Murkowski told reporters that six shuttered federal departments other than the Department of Homeland Security "don't have anything to do with border security". The left wing of the Democratic Party is demanding that the president not be allowed to secure the border.

"I'm not for it at all", said one man. He has demanded that Congress include $7 billion in border security and humanitarian aid - including $5.7 billion in money for the wall - in any spending package to reopen parts of the government that have been shuttered for almost three weeks.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., added, "I just think this is a situation where (Trump) is holding the American people hostage to a vanity wall fantasy".
