US House Passes Bill to Reopen Some Agencies Shuttered in Wall Fight

US House Passes Bill to Reopen Some Agencies Shuttered in Wall Fight

Like almost all drugs trafficked across the border, they were intercepted by agents at official ports of entry, he was told, and not in the remote areas where he wants to extend tall barriers. Trump says he won't reopen the government without money for the wall.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer forcefully rebutted the President in a speech of their own Tuesday where Pelosi accused Trump of "holding the American people hostage" to his demands.

"The entire airline industry is united in calling on the President and Congress to immediately end the shutdown", she wrote in a tweet.

President Trump holds a picture labeled "typical standard wall design" as he hosts a roundtable discussion on border security in the Cabinet Room of the White House on Friday.

Mr Trump said on Thursday that, instead of a direct payment, Mexico would be "paying for the wall indirectly, many, many times over", under a new trade deal between the US, Mexico and Canada.

In a sign of the deep divide between the two parties, congressional lawmakers spent much of the week blaming the other side for the impasse - with no significant action taken to resolve the shutdown. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said in a statement: "It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier". They later announced the four separate appropriations bills.

He said the Army Corps works on dams, levees and other projects across the nation and has an enormous backlog of unfunded needs.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said President Donald Trump promised him he would sign the legislation. Democrats, including freshmen members of the House and Senate, have not indicated they're prepared to support the wall. The difference is those earlier proposals were passed in the hopes they would become law.

Republicans who control the Senate have so far stood with Trump and insisted that any spending bills include money for his wall.

"The party of Lincoln and the party of Reagan, they're suffering through a massive moral collapse", he said, adding "It is sad and it is unsafe for this country and I believe it is the beginning of the end of my old party". He recently said during a press conference he might if talks fail.

With no Capitol Hill compromise in sight, Trump publicly ruminated on Thursday during the Texas trip about declaring an emergency.

But he is also likely to face lawsuits, too.
