Networks to air Pelosi, Schumer rebuttal to Trump

He was joined by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and other senior administration officials.

While top Democratic leaders once condemned illegal immigration and favored a border barrier, now they insist it is a wasteful proposal and even, in the estimation of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, "immoral".

The No. 2 House Democrat is blaming President Donald Trump for the partial government shutdown and says Trump is holding the government "hostage".

Warner also said he's anxious "about the fact that our Coast Guard, who's not been paid for weeks, is supposed to be interdicting both undocumented immigrants and drugs and narcotics". In the meantime, the federal government remains closed, as he refused to accept a budget with less than $5.7 billion for construction of the wall.

Two people embrace on the US side of the border, seen through the border wall Monday, Jan. 7, 2019, seen from along the beach in Tijuana, Mexico. "Tuesday night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern". Returning to the White House, he said: "They will make an adjustment because they want to see the border taken care of".

Trump is seeking to change that Tuesday night, as he delivers a primetime address from the Oval Office where he will reportedly try to argue that the wall is needed to stop a "crisis." About 800,000 government workers are furloughed or working without pay. Also, sorry, no one will ever sympathize with the media scared or anxious that Trump, or anyone for that matter, would say mean, mean things about them. Some of them have told me that we should have done it'.

Former President Bill Clinton spokesman Angel Urena said Clinton "never said that", adding that "they've not talked since inauguration".

"We can not keep our country safe without adequate funding for Border security, including a physical barrier and increased in funding for law enforcement", the release said.

Advisers have warned Trump about the legal battle the administration will surely face if he does declare a national emergency to fulfill his signature campaign promise amid a clash with Democrats over funding the wall. That effort is created to squeeze Senate Republicans, some of whom are growing increasingly anxious about the extended shutdown.

Among the Republicans expressing concern was Sen.

Pelosi and Schumer called for equal time to respond to Trump.

Over the weekend, the federal agency tasked with guaranteeing US airport security acknowledged an increase in the number of its employees missing work or calling in sick. But Trump and the Department of Homeland Security pushed back on any suggestion that the call-outs represented a "sickout" that was having a significant effect on USA air travel. There are only four living ex-presidents.

Castro, a Democrat from San Antonio, is leading a Congressional delegation visiting the Border Patrol facility in Alamogordo, New Mexico to investigate the death of 8-year-old Felipe Gomez Alonzo, the second child to die in December after being apprehended crossing the border illegally.

She then said that there was a massive influx of family units trying to come through our borders. "We are willing to come to a deal to reopen the government". "It's a national emergency", Trump said on October 31, 2016, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell "has the ability to put these bills on the floor and say, 'We're not the president's handmaidens, '" Hoyer said. He's made thousands of false and misleading claims already as president.
