President Trump threatens shutdown over wall, immigration

There are ‘consequences’ for illegal border crossing, Trump says

Securing Democrats' support, moreover, is not likely to be easy, particularly amid widespread anger over a Trump immigration policy that for a time was separating parents from their children - including infants - at the border.

Though the last government shutdown was short and ultimately didn't do much damage to either political party, a shutdown only a few weeks before the November midterm elections could cause plenty of damage for whichever party the country blames.

Malkin said that she supports President Trump and his administration for wanting an immigration reform vote before the midterms elections. The president signaled in the White House meeting that he was on board with McConnell and Ryan's strategy to fund the government smoothly through "minibusses", or smaller packages of spending bills that had been moving through the House and Senate, according to a person familiar with the meeting. Trump has requested US$25 billion to build a wall along the southern U.S. border with Mexico.

A federal judge on Friday urged the US government to focus on finding deported immigrant parents so it could reunite them with their children who remain in the United States.

The Republican president has made tougher immigration laws a centerpiece of his administration, from the first ill-fated travel ban on people from predominantly Muslim nations to the current battle raging over the separation of illegal immigrant children from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border.

In May, Trump suggested "closing up the country for a while" if he did not get his wall.

There was a brief government shutdown in January after Senate Democrats refused to back a spending package because of Trump's move to potentially force the deportation of immigrants who had been brought to the United States illegally as children. "Probably, and that's something we do have a disagreement on", he said in an interview with a Kentucky radio station, referring to the timing of action on Capitol Hill.

In April, Trump also threatened a shutdown over the funding of border security.

House Republicans, led by Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS), have tied $5 billion in southern border wall funding to a slew of pro-open borders and pro-big business immigration changes.
