Trump willing to shut down government over wall

The Internet Can't Stop Roasting Trump For Threatening To 'Shut Down' The Government. Trump: I Would Be Willing to ‘Shut Down’ Government Over Border Security

And that will likely mean far less funding for Trump's proposed border wall than he initially sought, analysts said. In addition, he wants to end the practice of releasing immigrants caught entering the country illegally on the condition that they show up for court hearings.

Trump campaigned on a promise of building a wall to deter illegal immigration and to make Mexico pay for it. Mexico has refused, leading Trump to look to US taxpayers to fund the endeavor instead, at least for now. They have educational opportunities. "They have extensive medical, dental and mental health opportunities". "There's basketball courts, there's exercise classes, there's soccer fields that we put in there".

But their answers revealed several new details about the administration's now reversed "zero tolerance" policy and the fallout that officials are still scrambling to fix.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DHS' Nielsen implemented the policy in earnest in May. "We'd get blamed", Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, the committee chairman. They include $25 billion toward construction of a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, but Trump acknowledged on Monday his demands are a starting point. He said the administration has "mishandled" the family separations.

One official told the Senate Judiciary Committee that while the Trump administration was developing its immigration policies, Health and Human Services officials said they were anxious "about any policy which would result in family separation due to concerns we had about the best interests of the child".

"Jonathan White testified that the highest levels knew about the concerns that he and other career officials raised about this policy", Blumenthal said.

U.S. lawmakers assailed the Trump administration on Tuesday for its controversial border policy, as one immigration enforcement official pushed back against charges of abuse to say that family detention centres are like a "summer camp". "They have recreational opportunities, both structured as well as unstructured", Albence said, according to CBS Los Angeles.

But lawmakers on both sides of the aisle were sharply critical of the family separations and pressed officials to explain what went wrong.

Members of both parties even accepted part of the blame for not updating US immigration laws to deal with the ever-growing flow of families entering the country and claiming asylum. She drew no affirmative responses.

Top US immigration officials skirted a number of questions during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing as lawmakers grilled them Tuesday over family separations at the US border.

Acting Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost defended agents' "consistent and fair enforcement of the law" and said that they don't "leave our humanity behind when we report for duty".

Because of those limitations, Albence said, children were leaving agency custody and sometimes falling through cracks in the tracking system. The agreement requires the government to place children in the "least restrictive" setting appropriate to their age and any special needs.

Some Republican members of the panel seemed sympathetic to the argument.

"There were some very basic ways that we could have kept track of the children and their parents in this age of, not only computers, but plastic bracelets", said Senate Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill. John Kennedy (R-Lousiana) also told the press that a shutdown wouldn't be a good idea. The president threatened to veto a measure in March that put $1.6 billion toward border security, a sliver of which was directed to a wall. When he complained that the government was focusing on reunification because a judge was forcing the issue, he drew a sharp rebuke from Democrats.

Matthew Albence, head of ICE's removal operations, said the alternatives to detention have been "fairly successful", but said they have been "woefully unsuccessful" at deporting people. They certainly are not palaces.

The detention of separated children, including infants, in cage-like enclosures set off a global outcry, and Trump last month ordered an end to the separations.

Albence is also defending his agency's treatment of detained immigrants following reports that some suffered sexual and other forms of abuse at government detention facilities.

This isn't the first time government facilities housing immigrant children have been compared to summer camps.

"The administration claims that all of these parents elected to be deported without their children". "But this has been many years", Trump said. "All of the widely distributed allegations about Shiloh were found to be without merit", the center wrote.

In a statement on its website, Shiloh said it has been visited, audited or investigated by authorities at the state and federal level in recent weeks. "The children have been found to be properly cared for and treated. It does not participate in border actions".
