Trump holds immigration roundtable at border patrol station

GOP not 'totally unified' on border security Trump holds immigration roundtable at border patrol station

President Donald Trump told Fox News on Thursday that he has "the absolute right to declare a national emergency" if he can't reach an agreement with congressional Democrats to provide funding for his promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

"We have to be careful about endorsing broad uses of executive power", Rubio told CNBC.

Democrats, who have a majority in the House, refuse to pass a budget that allocates any funding to the wall specifically, which they argue is expensive, ineffective, and a political gimmick responding to a border security crisis that does not exist. President Trump is not expected to declare a national emergency while there, though people close to the President caution this could change.

Not only does this contradict statements of that very ilk that Trump often exclaimed during his 2016 presidential campaign, it comes at the same time the president is facing mounting pressure for the ongoing federal government shutdown, instigated over his demands for money for the wall.

President Trump referenced his advisers Bill Shine, Kellyanne Conway and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who were all in the room during the off-the-record meeting, first reported by the New York Times, and said they convinced him the trip would be "worth it".

The proposal mirrored a measure the Senate rejected past year after opposition from the White House and senior adviser Stephen Miller. Trump on Thursday toured the U.S. -Mexico border in Texas to draw attention to the need for more border security.

"I have never been more depressed about moving forward than I am right now".

"When - during the campaign, I would say, "Mexico is going to pay for it", obviously, I never said this and I never meant they're going to write out a check". "He's winning here. You have to understand he's gonna open the government". I said they're going to pay for the wall.

"Again, we saw a temper tantrum because he couldn't get his way", Schumer said.

Yanira de Hernandez, a 52-year-old Salvadoran migrant who hopes to get to United States soil from Mexico, said she simply dreams of a better life in a country built on immigration.

"I think we should do it legislatively", Jordan told reporters, "because if [Trump] goes the emergency route, I'm convinced it's going to wind up in court". "The Opposition Party & the Dems know we must have Strong Border Security, but don't want to give "Trump" another one of many wins!"
