Now Trump Says He Is Willing to Negotiate on Border Wall Funding

"I would be willing to "shut down" the government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall!"

Trump on Monday said he had no "red line" for precisely what he would require from Congress, and he made no comment on timing.

And that promise is to build a wall on America's southern border with Mexico.

A shutdown was avoided in March after Congress approved a United States dollars 1.3 trillion spending package that would fund the government through the end of September.

Asked about Trump's Twitter threat, a pair of Republican lawmakers said Sunday that they didn't think the government should or would shut down this September.

"Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT!" he tweeted. Democratic activists in the state are hoping to leverage high-profile clashes with the Trump administration over immigration, oil drilling in California's offshore waters, and the prospect of loosening federal pollution rules on cars, to help flip GOP congressional seats to the Democratic column. But Trump's latest threats could bring congressional gridlock back on the agenda in the final stretch of the 2018 campaign.

President Donald Trump took the opportunity to brag about his people skills during a July 30 joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is demanding answers from federal immigration officials about the Trump administration's separation of migrant children from their families and its struggle to reunite them.

"One of the reasons we need Great Border Security is that Mexico's murder rate in 2017 increased by 27% to 31,174 people killed, a record!" "It's time we have proper border security".

The remark doubled down on Mr. Trump's tweet over the weekend threatening a shutdown, which has not found support among Republican leaders on Capitol Hill. "You know, I think we're going to make sure we keep the government open, but we're going to get better policies on immigration". "I'll meet with anybody I believe in meeting", he said. And GOP leaders in Congress are reluctant to see a government shutdown this fall, just weeks ahead of the midterm elections.

Trump is noting that Italian voters got "tired" of their country's immigration policies.

"No, that's not going to happen", the Kentucky senator told WHAS radio station in Louisville on Friday. McConnell canceled most of the Senate's recess to give senators time to work on the annual spending bills that fund government operations.

Durbin's demand will likely be ignored, and Homeland Security spokesman Tyler Houlton quickly issued a statement saying Nielsen is "doing the job she was nominated, confirmed and sworn to do" and said "the obstructionists in Congress" should pass laws protecting USA borders.

Spending bills have appropriated funds to replace existing walls or barriers, something Trump has tried to promote to his supporters as signs of progress.

But the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting migrants entering the US without authorization, and its separation of thousands of children from their parents, has drawn election-year criticism from both parties.

"Let me ask this panel, who here thinks that zero tolerance has been a success?" Sen.

"These allegations of abuse are extremely disturbing and must be addressed", Grassley and Feinstein wrote in a letter to the departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services.

Last week, Republican leaders thought they had reached a deal with Trump to delay a confrontation on funding for the wall until after the November mid-term elections, according to a person familiar with their discussion. OR became America's first sanctuary state when it adopted a law in 1987 preventing law enforcement from detaining people who are in the United States illegally but have not broken other laws.
