  • The Internet Can't Stop Roasting Trump For Threatening To 'Shut Down' The Government.

Trump returned to the idea after a meeting at the White House last week with House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., where they were said to have agreed on the way forward on government funding for the budget year that starts October 1.

"Trump's border wall does nothing to promote San Diego's robust economy and our positive global ties with Mexico", Democratic Council President Pro Tem Barbara Bry said, according to The Washington Free Beacon. He said the border funding issue in particular would probably have to wait until after the elections.

Despite Mexico's public rejection of responsibility for the cost and tangles with Democrats and other Republicans in Congress over funding for the wall, Trump has consistently pushed the proposal, sometimes over other border security measures that are proven to prevent illegal immigration and drug smuggling. Now legislators are grappling with a far more hard question: what comes next?

The two federal agencies tasked with enforcing President Donald Trump's evolving immigration policies wouldn't be hamstrung in the event of a partial shutdown of government operations, which is perhaps partly why the president has said repeatedly he'd be just fine with that outcome. Democrats believe most families should be released into the country as they await their day in court.

"We should not have to choose between tearing children from their parents and enforcing our nation's lawful immigration system", they wrote.

Democrats blasted the administration policies, but some Republicans like Iowa Sen.

US President Donald Trump returns to the White House holding his granddaughter Arabella's hand after spending a weekend in Bedminster, NJ on July 29, 2018 in Washington, DC. The Senate will stay in session for most of August, except for a weeklong break scheduled to begin Aug. 6.

Congress is working toward a September 30 deadline to fund the federal government or risk shuttering agencies a month before the midterm election. Trump has asked for $25 billion to build the wall.

This comes in the light of similar threats that Trump has issued in the past, with him saying in March that he would be open to "closing up the country for a while" if he was not to get his wall, the CNN reported.

Some Republican lawmakers doubted the government would be forced to shut down. The Senate Appropriations Committee, she said, was making progress and working "closely" with the administration. The higher amount matches what Trump has privately sought in conversations with Republican lawmakers, according to a GOP congressional aide who wasn't authorized to publicly talk about private discussions and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"It's a mini-compromise based on what the president laid out", said Kevin Yoder, a Kansas Republican who is chairman of a Homeland Security subcommittee.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said last week that the funding for the wall was "not a question of if, it's a question of when".

"They don't want the wall".

While Grassley and others anxious that deportees may not have made informed choices about leaving their children behind, the administration said the departing parents did exactly that.

But a hearing scheduled for Tuesday on the topic may have a wider focus after the committee's bipartisan leaders asked federal investigators to probe reports of sexual and other abuse of immigrants at government detention facilities.

"Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally - whether they have children or not - and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes", the President said on Twitter.

Trump administration officials mounted a fierce defense Tuesday of the controversial family separation policy at the border, defending sites as "more like a summer camp" than holding facilities, and arguing that the detention system simply was not set up to facilitate court-ordered reunions easily.
