Trump's shutdown tweet catches GOP by surprise

A Department of Health and Human Services official told senators Tuesday that his agency had warned the Trump administration that separating families would be dangerous for children

"It's time we have proper border security".

"Congress must act on fixing the DUMBEST and WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world!"

"This is a wall of shame, and we don't want any part of it", Democratic Assemblyman Phil Ting said. Four years ago, the Houston Chronicle reported on long-running allegations of physical violence, excessive use of physical restraints and several deaths of children in custody. Instead, he simply ticked down a list of border security funding priorities and immigration reforms that he would like to see.

McConnell steered clear of criticizing Trump, saying that while he supports what the president is trying to achieve on the border wall, the Senate is working to resolve the issue through regular order. "The whole thing is ridiculous. We have to change our laws".

"Every time we've gotten up to the point where there could be a decision on the wall, Republicans say 'we'll get to it later, '" said Stan Collender, a professor of public policy at Georgetown University and an expert on federal spending.

"Commander White is exactly the person that is needed", Sabraw told him in court that day.

The US federal government last shut down was over a spending bill when the Congress failed to reach consensus due to political fights. "Democrats or Republicans. No one wins".

"Trump seized on the praise, tweeting Monday that "a highly respected Federal judge" had said that the "'Trump Administration gets great credit' for reuniting illegal families.

"Let's hope not", Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, told CBS host Margaret Brennan when asked about a shutdown on Sunday's "Face the Nation." .

Ryan told reporters Thursday that congressional leaders and Trump "have a unified strategy to make sure that we can get as many appropriation bills done as possible". On the Hill, GOP members of the Senate Appropriations committee had similar thoughts about the possibility of a government shutdown on Monday. But I think it's not a question of if, it's a question of when.

"They probably can't answer that or they'd get fired", quipped Sen.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said shutdowns represent "a failure to govern effectively". "I'd prefer a deal that would be a win-win." Sen.

The government said in Friday's filings that attempts to gather data to comply with states' requests would divert it from efforts to reunite families. He said the border funding issue in particular would probably have to wait until after the elections. McConnell was asked in a Friday interview with WHAS if he feared a shutdown. The majority leader also stated that discussions over wall funding would "probably" be pushed until after the upcoming November elections.

At the White House meeting last week, Trump, Ryan and McConnell agreed that Congress is on track to enact more than half of federal spending before the new budget year begins October 1, but that DHS funding, including the border wall money, doesn't have to be settled before then, according to a person familiar with the meeting who was not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Under previous administrations, most people caught crossing the border illegally were placed in civil deportation proceedings, which allowed them to be released into the country to await deportation hearings.

Trump's comments came after he threatened on Twitter over the weekend to shut down the government if he does not receive funding for his campaign-promised border wall from Congress. The administration says some of their parents have criminal histories. "There are a lot of things I'm unhappy about in this bill".

"I said to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again", Trump said in March. When it comes to the actual numbers for border security funding, the House and Senate have not concurred.

Congressman Steve Stivers, a Republican from OH, downplayed the possibility of a shutdown in a TV interview on Sunday, saying: "I think we're going to make sure we keep the government open".
