Trump holds immigration roundtable at border patrol station

Trump holds immigration roundtable at border patrol station

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

As Professor Andrew Rudalevige wrote in The Washington Post on Thursday, "nothing in the [National Emergencies Act of 1976] says there actually has to be a national emergency - only that the president has to declare one".

There has been serious debate internally about the legal ramifications of President Trump declaring a national emergency so he can build his border wall without congressional approval.

The US federal government has been partially shut down since December 22 over the dispute between congressional Democrats to approve $5.7 billion that Trump seeks to fund the construction of the border wall.

President Donald Trump is winning the battle against Democrats over his border wall demand that has caused a budget standoff and closed down the federal government since before Christmas, MSNBC's Donny Deutsch said.

Chuck Schumer, the top Democrat in the Senate, told journalists Trump "sort of slammed the table", then "got up and walked out".




McConnell has made clear that he won't take up any legislation related to the shutdown in the Senate that President Donald Trump won't sign. He will also receive a briefing on border security at the Rio Grande before returning to Washington later in the evening.

I would just say three words to my friend the majority leader: Open the government. "He's winning here. You have to understand he's gonna open the government".

"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".

Trump had been expected to make a brief appearance at the influential get-together, attended by many world leaders, but said that opposition Democratic "intransigence" required him to stay home. "I would nearly say definitely", Trump said when asked if he'd make such a move, the Times reports.

"Again, we saw a temper tantrum because he couldn't get his way", Schumer said. They get through the border and they go and filter into the country and you have MS-13 gangs in places like Los Angeles and you have gangs all over Long Island, which we're knocking the hell out of.

On Thursday, US media reported the White House had asked the Army Corps of Engineers to look into the possibility of diverting funds allocated for relief projects in areas damaged by natural disasters, such as Puerto Rico and Florida.
