"Must get rid of Lottery, Catch and Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT!" McConnell acknowledged, however, that the border funding issue in particular was unlikely to be resolved before the balloting.

President Donald Trump says that he is willing to shut down the government over funding for his long-promised border wall but that he'll "always leave room for negotiation".

"Border security includes the wall, but it includes many other things", Trump said.

Cuellar said he remains concerned about the continued separation and reunification of immigrant families. Numerous children have been accused by immigration officials of belonging to MS-13 and other violent gangs, an activity Trump has used to justify his "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting immigrants caught entering the country without permission.

US President Donald Trump threatened a shutdown of the Federal government today if his political opponents oppose his immigration policies. They don't contain many provisions Democrats would normally object to since Republicans are generally satisfied with regulatory rollbacks being carried out by the Trump administration.

The House is in recess and won't return until after Labor Day.

Trump on Tuesday escalated his public threats of a government shutdown, even as he has told aides privately that he won't make any move until after the midterm elections. "It's disgraceful." Trump said that his demand for border security "includes many things" besides the wall, including ending the visa lottery system and terminating chain migration.

Because Trump's wall was funded during the current fiscal year, it would continue for the length of the extension. The president tweeted over the weekend that he would be willing to shut down the federal government if Democrats don't support a plan to boost border security and fund his signature border wall.

Instead, the GOP leader says the Senate would be finishing up a package of budget bills this week as Congress makes progress toward funding the government for the new fiscal year that begins October 1.

Defending conditions in the holding facilities, Albence said, "With regard to the FRCs (Family Residential Centers), I think the best way to describe them would be like a summer camp". They do, however, have the strength to derail legislation in the closely divided Senate. The House Appropriations Committee Homeland Security Bill contains $5 billion for "physical barriers and associated technology on the southern border".

In a meeting at the White House last week, GOP leaders conveyed to Trump that they were on track to approve more than half of the government spending bills before September 30, leaving more controversial matters - including the wall - until after the election.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that it would be unhelpful to shut down the government just before elections "so let's try and avoid it".

Two leading Democrats - Reps.

"That makes sense for Republicans, because they don't want to have it out just before the election", Collender said, "but it doesn't make any sense for Trump". Nita Lowey of NY and California's Lucille Roybal-Allard - called the $5 billion a waste that "only further enables this administration's obsession with cruel attacks on immigrants".

On Thursday, the government said it had reunited 1,442 children with their parents, while hundreds of children are still separated from their families.

While Grassley and others anxious that deportees may not have made informed choices about leaving their children behind, the administration said the departing parents did exactly that.

A senior official at the US agency charged with caring for migrant children believed separating them from their parents carried "significant risk" of harm and said on Tuesday concerns had been raised internally before the Trump administration made it official policy.
