No Sign of Compromise on Wall at US-Mexico Border

  • US President Donald Trump says there is a 'growing humanitarian and security crisis' at the border

Mr Trump has threatened to declare a national emergency over the "crisis" at the border, bypassing congressional approval to build the wall. "This is a completely contrived and phony crisis as far as I am concerned because we solve problems like this everyday, working out and negotiating outcomes". Unaccompanied children are finally being released from custody after hitting a record 15,000 in custody last month, but only after Health and Human Services, the agency in charge, dropped a new screening requirement for sponsors under pressure. He said precious lives were cut short repeatedly by those who have violated the borders.

"Again, we saw a temper tantrum because he couldn't get his way", Schumer added.

The two leaders said this in a joint statement late Monday: "Now that the television networks have made a decision to air the president's address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime".

Though Mr Trump did not declare a national emergency on Tuesday night, analysts say he may still do so before the shutdown is resolved. He suggested the issue could be resolved in a quick meeting, but past discussions at the White House have not ended the stalemate.

Mr Trump said the wall is not "immoral" as he said wealthy politicians build walls and fences around their homes because they love the people on the inside, not because they hate people on the outside.

So I think that was my main problem. "So hopefully this isn't a recurring thing". "I had so many chances and I thought I could win in two sets".

"Never in our 30-year history have we been this one-sided (9 to 1) on a wager", he said.

"The liberals want open borders, and they want to punch President Trump in the eye", she lamented.

Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader in the Senate, told journalists: "The president just got up and walked out".

With the partial government shutdown going on for over a fortnight now, there is increasing panic in the two camps and both sides are trying to reach out to Americans to explain their position on the stalemate. "We need to get our border secure and we need a barrier".

He tweeted that once Pelosi rejected his long-stalled border wall, he "said bye-bye, nothing else works!" Due to Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's refusal to put the bill up to a vote during the new 116th Congress, the bill hasn't passed the Senate for a second time, dragging the shutdown to its current standstill. "I think most Americans understand that it's purely political".

They say he is using false claims and manufacturing a crisis to carry out his 2016 presidential campaign promise for a wall that he said at the time would be paid for by Mexico.

In his speech, Trump sought to make a case that not having a wall is putting Americans at risk of being victims of violence at the hands of people who enter the country illegally, and endangering them by allowing large amounts of illegal drugs to cross the border. "But all Americans are hurt by uncontrolled illegal migration".

Pelosi and Schumer responded, accusing Trump of appealing to "fear, not facts". "Our southern border is a vast pipeline for illegal drugs including meth, heroine, cocaine and fentanyl".

Democrats argue that maintenance of existing border fencing, hi-tech tools to scan vehicles crossing at ports of entry, and hiring more personnel would be cheaper and more effective than a wall.
