Wall Can't Fix Problems at Southern US Border

Wall Can't Fix Problems at Southern US Border

"Separate the shutdown from the arguments over border security", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, appearing in a joint response with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

"A total waste of time", Trump tweeted about his meeting with top Democratic congressional leaders.

He said: "He asked Speaker Pelosi, 'Will you agree to my wall?' She said no". Across the seven nets and down 4 from the opposition, the "temper tantrum" accused POTUS pulled in a 28.1/45 rating in the overnight metrics in the 9 - 9:15 PM ET time period.

"Let me get back in your face, 'cause you're such a smart ass most of the time and I know you want this to go viral", Conway said.

The lack of progress in negotiations raises the prospect that Trump will declare a national emergency, a move that would bypass Congress and enable him to obtain funds from the Defense Department to build the wall.

Before the president's address on border security Tuesday night, Bookmaker.eu put the over/under on the number of lies he'd spew at 3.5.

The president was lauded by longtime supporters who have criticized him in recent weeks over his failure to implement of a border wall, nearly two years into his administration.

The Senator showed support for the President in his statement saying, "When the president of the United States has a legitimate objective-which in this case is increased funding for border security, including a physical barrier-members of Congress should bend over backwards to accommodate it, especially when they've voted for that same policy in the past".

The national opinion poll, which ran from January 1 to January 7, found that 51 percent of adults believe Trump "deserves most of the blame" for the shutdown.

Many Democratic political pros and other Trump opponents disagreed.

"The fact-checking came too late for any viewers who turned off their televisions after the president stopped speaking", said Media Matters' Matt Gertz. "I think most Americans understand that it's purely political". 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. There's little concern about that within the White House, where it's regarded as a problem mainly felt in Washington - despite the fact that thousands of federal workers live outside of the capital area.

Trump used emotional language, referring to Americans who were killed by people in the country illegally, saying: "I've met with dozens of families whose loved ones were stolen by illegal immigration".

Noting that his administration was doing everything in its power to help those impacted by the situation, Trump said the only solution was for Democrats to pass a spending bill that defends the borders and reopens the government.

"This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border", he added.
