Trump willing to shut down government over border security

Trump willing to shut down government over border security”

President Donald Trump said Sunday that he would consider shutting down the government if Democrats refuse to vote for his immigration proposals, including a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border.

Trump says, "I'll always leave room for negotiation".

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

The administration failed to meet last Thursday's court-ordered deadline to reunite all families separated at the U.S. -Mexico border.

The federal budget year ends September 30, and lawmakers will spend much of August in their states campaigning for re-election.

"Italy has taken a very firm stance on the border, a stance few countries have taken", Trump said during a brief photo op in the Oval Office before the joint news conference.

In the opening remarks of his press conference with Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte, President Trump doubled down and said he had "no problem" shutting down the government to get what he wants on immigration policy.

Officials from ICE and Health and Human Services said they keep records of migrants who have been detained and have documentation of parents who left the USA without their children.

Trump has come under intense criticism for his zero-tolerance immigration policy, which prioritises prosecutions of people who enter the United States illegally.

'We must have Border Security, get rid of Chain, Lottery, Catch & Release Sanctuary Cities - go to Merit based Immigration.

In the past also, Trump has favoured a merit-based immigration system which, according to him, would attract the best and the brightest from across the world to the US.

Both last year and this year, Trump said he would shut down the government if Democrats didn't agree to fund construction of the wall.

Numerous children have been accused by immigration officials of belonging to MS-13 and other violent gangs, an activity Trump has used to justify his "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting immigrants caught entering the country without permission.

The potential shutdown is creating anxieties among Republicans who are hoping to maintain control of Congress in the fall midterm elections.

McConnell, asked about a shutdown during a radio interview in Kentucky, said it was not going to happen. Trump threatened at the time to veto the spending agreement, but eventually signed the bill while expressing his displeasure with Congress. "So we ought to be disturbed, and I'm disturbed by these allegations".

Trump's "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting migrants entering the USA without authorization, his separation of more than 2,500 children from their parents, and botched efforts to reunite many of them has drawn election-year criticism from both parties.

"This is a wall of shame, and we don't want any part of it", Ting said in a statement when he introduced the bill.

The $5 billion is well above the $1.6 billion in the Senate version of the bill, which would finance the Department of Homeland Security.

Lawmakers met with Trump last week to discuss the appropriations process to fund the government.

Some of the cities boycotting these contractors also led the "sanctuary" campaign against the Trump administration's efforts to crackdown on illegal immigration by barring local law enforcement from communicating with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and other federal immigration authorities.
