Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a key negotiator on President Trump’s demand for a border wall, said on Sunday that congressional talks are stalled, raising the prospect of another government shutdown at week’s end.

“I think the talks are stalled right now. I’m hoping we can get off the dime later today or in the morning because time is ticking away but we’ve got some problems with the Democrats dealing with ICE, that is detaining criminals that come into the U.S. and they want a cap on them. We don’t want a cap on that,” Shelby said on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The article goes on to state the following:

Democrats have told GOP negotiators that they won’t agree to spend more than $2 billion on border barriers, well below the $5.7 billion that Trump has called for. In addition, a new issue has roiled the talks: a dispute over the number of beds at immigrant detention centers. Democrats want to limit the number of people detained at the border, while Republicans oppose restricting the capacity of detention centers.

    For health reasons the bed limit should be capped per station. Never ever cap limited on detaining hardened criminals.

    Well of course they are stalled, we all knew Pelosi & the Democrats would not give our President even a fraction of an inch, I hope he declares an emergency at the border but doesn’t shut down the Government again it will serve no purpose, the Dems don’t care how much the American people are hurt by no pay or by illegals invading our country, pathetic.

    No surprise! Who do they work for? It seems as if it’s for non citizens. We spend more on illegals than the wall or shutdown cost. So it’s not about money, it’s one party against another as Americans pay the price for their hate

They made all the under handed arrangements to send the illegals up here in the first place with the help of Soros we all know it, they jeopardize all those children and teens with the coyotes then they blame Trump when they are the guilty party !! Now they continue to to do this !! They need set in their place, need grounded like an out of control kid!!! Set boundaries, Nancy and Chuckie need their pens taken away and their podiums put an ankle bracelet in both of them and keep them home and tell them to shut up and watch the Price is Right for 6 months
