President Donald J. Trump, known throughout the world to be a caring loving compassionate individual, re-opened the government despite the Democrats' unwillingness to fund common sense border security. He gave them three weeks to get their sh-t in order, and time's almost up.
The commies at NPR explain why the government shutdown is likely to resume at the end of the week:
"Negotiations to stop another government shutdown have stalled, as lawmakers remain at an impasse over border security. If an agreement on funding the government isn't reached by Friday at midnight, the government could partially shut down again, just three weeks after the longest U.S. government shutdown in history…
A Democratic congressional aide tells NPR talks have broken down over how many detention beds for Immigration and Customs Enforcement will be funded through the agreement. Democrats want to limit the number of beds to force the Trump administration to prioritize arresting and deporting serious criminals, not law-abiding immigrants…
Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told NBC's Meet the Press that negotiations are "all over the map because of the Democrats" and that "the White House, at the request of all the parties on the Hill, have sort of stepped back. We're still participating, we're still listening, we're still talking, but we're not leading the negotiations."'
Trump, as usual, took to Twitter to take the Democrats to task for refusing to secure America's porous borders:
I don't think the Dems on the Border Committee are being allowed by their leaders to make a deal. They are offering very little money for the desperately needed Border Wall & now, out of the blue, want a cap on convicted violent felons to be held in detention!— Donald J.
