Government should reopen before emergency declared, Lindsey Graham says

Government should reopen before emergency declared, Lindsey Graham says

The partial us government shutdown entered a record 22nd day on Saturday, as President Donald Trump remains steadfast in his demand for $5.7 billion to build a Mexico border wall and Democrats in Congress determined to refuse the funds.

President Donald Trump has said he has "no idea" if he will be able to strike a deal with the Democrats for his border wall and end the longest United States government shutdown in history.

The longest federal government shutdown in American history ground into a fourth week Saturday, Jan. 12, with President Donald Trump showing fresh defiance on Twitter, congressional Democrats firmly resolved to resist his calls for a border wall, and unpaid workers caught in the middle. "Other presidents have called many national emergencies for things of lesser importance, frankly, than this, ' Trump said on Saturday night in a live telephone interview with Fox News" Jeanine Pirro. Some Republicans are wary, too, fearing how a future Democratic president might use that authority.

Trump added: 'I haven't actually left the White House in months, ' with the exception of a Christmas visit to troops in Iraq and Germany.

He said that, starting in 2014, the demographics of the people coming across the USA border started to change.

The shutdown has now surpassed the longest previous closure of 1995-96.

US House Passes Bill to Reopen Some Agencies Shuttered in Wall Fight
With no Capitol Hill compromise in sight, Trump publicly ruminated on Thursday during the Texas trip about declaring an emergency. He said the Army Corps works on dams, levees and other projects across the nation and has an enormous backlog of unfunded needs.

President Donald Trump might end one conflict with Congress over funding for his long-sought Mexican border wall by invoking national emergency powers, but he's nearly certain to ignite another, with repercussions Republicans may regret in the future. Democrats have said they would support $1.6 billion for more general border security, but not specifically for a wall. An estimated 800,000 federal workers could go without paychecks this week, because funding for their agencies ran out on December 22. -Fight for the Future "Schumer and Pelosi's position may seem appealing in light of Trump's freakish plan to build a costly and unnecessary wall, but in reality-increasing border surveillance is a nefarious move that widely threatens the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution", wrote the group.

Last week, the talks broke down during a contentious meeting at the White House at which Trump walked out when told by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, that she would continue to oppose the wall in border security negotiations, even if the government was reopened. Now, with President Donald Trump proposing an end-run around Congress to build his promised border wall with Mexico, many Republicans are uneasily cheering him on. The 800,000 federal civil servants who went without normal pay last week have been furloughed or ordered to work without pay, although they will be paid retroactively when the stalemate over Trump's border wall plan is resolved. Declaring a national emergency over it with little information to suggest the security situation has dramatically changed could prove hard to defend in court. "But I'm not going to do it so fast because this is something Congress should do".

"I would hate to see it".

The House and Senate overwhelmingly passed a bill on Friday to ensure all government workers receive retroactive pay after the shutdown ends.

He again attempted to gain support for the border wall, which was a key promise of his 2016 election campaign. But the GOP-controlled Senate has refused to consider the measures unless Trump agrees to sign them. "Shame on the White House", he told the crowd. Sixty-six percent of respondents, however, oppose Trump using emergency powers to get a border wall built-something he has floated during the shutdown.

The White House has directed the Army Corps of Engineers to comb through its budget in search of money for the wall, including looking at $13.9 billion in unspent disaster relief funds earmarked for areas including hurricane-damaged Puerto Rico, Texas and more than a dozen other states.
