Democrats are torn on whether to support Trump on border wall

And yeah, they're going to have border patrols there to make sure that doesn't happen, just like we already have now that clearly isn't stopping the problem enough for republicans.

The president also discussed the Camp David meeting on Twitter, pointing to infrastructure, immigration and border security as upcoming agenda items.

Applying the same logic to the border wall, what if Congress passes a bill recognizing the damaging consequences of our porous border situation, and mandating the construction of a wall and/or other border security and control measures (like the legislation in 1995 recognizing the fact that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and would be the site of the U.S. Embassy there).

Trump has tied their fate to an $18 billion budget provision he wants to fund a border wall between the USA and Mexico.

Another $8.5 billion over seven years would be used to pay for 5,000 new Border Patrol agents. On Tuesday, a federal judge in California declined the Trump administration's proposal to end the program.

Flooding and Ice Jams Possible Friday
Saturday's precipitation could include freezing rain, sleet and an uncertain amount of snow accumulation, Thompson said. Chicago can expect any water on the ground from today's rain to flash freeze this evening, according to Fenelon.

'The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the awful Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. "It's wonderful, I would love not to build the wall, but we need the wall", Trump said. They're seeing about 40% more people [arrested] than was the case under the Obama administration, and those deportations are happening faster in the immigration court system. But once the cameras left the room, the president showed much more flexibility, according to lawmakers.

McConnell suggested the deal could include an expansion of children's health care funding and expiring national security provisions, but he made no direct mention of the border wall. "I think it's something that they'd like to see happen", Trump told reporters.

"Obviously the biggest challenge we have is now in the Senate, we have 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats", Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) said on Fox News on Friday.

"Yes, I do", he said when asked if he stood by Sessions continuing as attorney general.

The current stopgap spending bill expires on January 19. The president also said he wants to end the diversity visa lottery, which grants 50,000 green cards each year to people from countries with low levels of immigration to the United States, and also to curb "chain migration" - the president's term for USA citizens' ability to sponsor their relatives for green cards.

It follows a Friday White House demand that Democrats agree to $18 billion in wall construction in exchange for any deal to protect so-called DREAMers who came here illegally as children. We have to get rid of chain migration.
