A Fox news article reports “Both chambers of Congress passed the short-term spending bill to re-open the government, temporarily ending the 35-day partial government shutdown on Friday, sending the measure to President Trump’s desk for him to sign into law.”
“Trump and congressional Democrats arrived at an agreement Friday to support a short-term spending bill to re-open the government, temporarily ending the partial government shutdown that has dragged on for 35 days, in a move to separate the controversial issue of border security from funding of the government.”
Trump agreed to a three week truce to try to solve the impasse over border wall funding.
Trump should just declare an emergency now to get border wall funding since the Dems won’t make a reasonable deal. Even if the Dems would agree to a DACA amnesty for the wall, what’s the point of building the border with so many illegals on the wrong side and all the DACA illegals allowed to stay?
It should be “Build the wall and no DACA amnesty” if Trump wants his base to be happy.
