Chuck and Nancy BEAT Trump in ratings for his Oval Office address

"The only thing that is immoral is the politicians to do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimised", Trump said.

And Trump blasted Democrat rivals in Congress - blaming them for shutting down the government for the second longest period in history over the border security row.

What followed, however, was much of the racist and xenophobic rhetoric we've heard from Trump for the past three and a half years-including the false claims that undocumented immigrants as a whole are risky to the United States and that the only solution to questions over our border security is a $5 billion wall. Everyday, custom officers and border patrol agents encounter thousands of illegal immigrants trying to enter our country.

At a private meeting with House Republicans, Vice President Mike Pence cited a C.S. Lewis quote calling courage a virtue, and he said Trump has no plans to retreat.

Among those hit hardest by illegal immigration are African-Americans and Hispanics, he said - although he did not provide evidence for that and similar claims. Among those, hardest hit are African Americans and Hispanic Americans.

An October 2018 report by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency detailed the prevalence and source of a number of drugs, including those Trump mentioned Tuesday - heroin, fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine. Every week 300 of our citizens are killed by heroine alone. Trump called the situation on the southern border as a "humanitarian crisis - a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul". "But all Americans are hurt by uncontrolled illegal migration".

Democrats touring border warn Trump against diverting funds for wall
In the meantime, hundreds of thousands of federal workers face missed paychecks Friday as the shutdown drags through a third week. He promised during the campaign that Mexico would pay for the wall.

Apple Trolls Google & Amazon With Billboard at CES
LG has followed in its recent tradition of pre-announcing many of its biggest CES products in the days ahead of the show. Cook has said that private information "is being weaponized" against consumers with "military efficiency".

Trump and Democratic leaders were poised to sit down at the White House on Wednesday afternoon for the first time since last week, when talks remained at a statement over the president's insistence that any government funding bill include $5.7bn toward the construction of a border wall.

Schumer said Trump left the meeting abruptly after he asked Pelosi whether she would support his demand for a border wall, and she said no. Ann Coulter, who has pressured the White House away from immigration compromise before, said: "Beautiful speech".

So our suggestion is a simple one: Mr. President: re-open the government and we can work to resolve our differences over border security.

Trump and congressional Democrats continue to spar over funds to build a wall along the Southern border, with Trump threatening to declare a national emergency to fund the wall if Democrats do not budge.

So far, there appears to be no way out of the crisis, with the Democrats, who control the lower house of Congress, insisting a wall would be both ineffective and unethical. In regard to threats of terrorism, the State Department recently found "no credible evidence" that terrorist groups had entered the USA through Mexico, undercutting Trump's argument that terrorists are entering the U.S at its southern boundary.
