Democrats unveil border security plan, with no money for a wall

The president referenced migrant caravans massing in Central America, intent on making their way to the USA southern border.

When asked by a reporter if she would vote on legislation that includes border wall funding, she reiterated that she would block any such funds, as IJR Blue noted.

Evan Hollander, a House Appropriations Committee spokesman, said the Democratic plan detailed on Thursday was the party's "position entering conference negotiations" and "every proposal raised by conferees will be thoughtfully considered". "Let them have that discussion", she said, referring to low-slung vehicle barriers. But he said if Pelosi, Trump and party leaders "would let us, the appropriators, do our job, we could do this".

The conferees can discuss whether there are places where additional Normandy fencing or other enhanced fencing is needed, Pelosi said.

Pelosi criticized that approach on Thursday, saying Trump "wanted it all to himself" and "wants Congress be completely irrelevant".

The rift between President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over construction of a border wall appeared to widen on Thursday as negotiators work to strike a deal ahead of a mid-month deadline.

In a barrage of morning tweets, Trump sent mixed messages in which he alternately hardened his wall demand, but also suggested that repairing existing fencing is a big part of his plan. "Wall is already being built, I don't expect much help!" he added.

"There's 600 miles of something - 300 miles of them are Normandy fences", she said. "With the world watching and the lives of families at stake, we should not compromise our values at the negotiating table", they wrote.

"If they come up with a bipartisan consensus, of course", she said.

Health Officials Scramble To Contain Measles Outbreak
Thirty-one patients had not been vaccinated against measles, and the status of four others who were infected is not known. The majority of those infected were children, with 25 of the 35 confirmed cases impacting children under 10 years old.

"I could see myself doing something for DACA but I want to find out what the Supreme Court is going to do first", Trump told the Caller, adding that he believes its "highly unlikely" that the issue will come up.

Lawmakers from both parties met at the Capitol to open negotiations aimed at resolving the wall standoff that led to a 35-day partial government shutdown - the longest in United States history - over Trump's insistence on $5.7 billion in wall funding.

That included a meeting on Tuesday between the President and senior advisers to go over various options for signing the order and laying out scenarios for how it would go into effect, the officials said.

The committee is expected to wrap up around February 10 as under the temporary funding the government agencies in question will shut down against on February 15 if an agreement isn't reached.

"I go out of my way because I am a supporter of Trump".
