New Polls: Majorities Blame Trump And GOP For Shutdown, Oppose Border Wall

On Friday, some workers who missed their first payday of the year shared their blank payslips on social media.

Negotiations are at a standstill and no more talks are scheduled for the weekend or early next week.

Despite Trump's calls for Democrats to negotiate, Democratic leaders said it was the president who walked out of their last meeting, calling the negotiations a waste of time, according to news reports.

But federal employees - those on furlough and those who have remained on the job - still won't be paid until the shutdown ends. I will be the one to shut it down.

As the shutdown has continued, both the House and Senate have approved legislation that would provide back pay to federal workers once the shutdown ends.

President Donald Trump is refusing to approve a budget unless it includes funds for a wall on the Mexican border.

Jayme Closs' family wonders why suspected kidnapper targeted her
Jayme was inside the home when her parents were killed. "Well, right now we're looking for 88 days of evidence", Fitzgerald said. Jayme's grandfather Robert Naiberg reiterated Saturday that the family had no connection with Patterson and didn't know him.

He has also threatened to invoke a national emergency in order to deploy the military to build the wall, essentially circumventing Congress. Trump has hit a low point of 35% in CNN's polling two times - in December 2017 and February 2018 - and has been at 40% or above just nine times out of the 20 CNN has polled on it.

Lawmakers are due back in Washington from their states and congressional districts in the new week.

In his nationally televised address he delivered from the Oval Office on Tuesday, Trump asserted that there is a humanitarian and security crisis at the border because of illegal immigration. The shutdown became the longest ever on Saturday as it entered its 22nd day.

Of those 42 per cent who support the wall, 24 per cent say Trump should continue to demand the level of funding he has asked for, and 16 per cent say he should strike a deal with the Democrats.

As the shutdown drags into a fourth week, each side has blamed the other.

The "wall plus" plan could include an extension of temporary protected status for about 400,000 immigrants in the USA because of disasters back home in El Salvador and elsewhere, and renewable three-year work permits for young, undocumented "Dreamers", he said.

"It's the last option, not the first option, but we're pretty close to that being the only option", Graham said of an emergency declaration.

"If we can't (get a deal) at the end of three weeks, all bets are off", Graham told "Fox News Sunday".

He denied this allegation and insisted that the White House couldn't be in chaos due to the fact that "there's nearly nobody in the W.H. but me, and I do have a plan on the Shutdown".

With the exception of certain local employees overseas, the rest are working without pay, such as those tasked with supporting Mr Pompeo's trip, which has thus far taken him to Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and Bahrain.

United States President Donald Trump said he was holding off on declaring a state of emergency to end the partial U.S. government shutdown that dragged into a 23rd day yesterday, as he insisted on US$5.7 billion (S$7.7 billion) to build a Mexico border wall that congressional Democrats oppose.

Other possibilities included tapping asset forfeiture funds, such as money seized from drug kingpins, according to a congressional Republican not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. "The Republican-controlled Senate and a handful of senators will make that decision". While McConnell has been part of the process, he was not present outside the White House last week after talks between Trump and congressional leaders collapsed. Milstead said a barrier of steel slats that border agents can see through and animals and waters can pass through - much like what exists at the border now - could work.
