Trump is ready to resume the work of the government, if you take the “first installment” on the wall
The President assured that he could support a “reasonable arrangement”
WASHINGTON – U.S. President Donald trump said he was willing to support an agreement on the resumption of work of the Federal government, if she will provide “proportional to the first installment of” on the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico.
Speaking to reporters at the White house, the President said that the country has no choice but to build a wall to prevent a “literal invasion” in a country of criminals, human traffickers and drug.
Trump said that he is guilty that in the United States tend to get so many people because it has improved the condition of the American economy and labor market.
However, he stressed that everyone needs to come to the US legally.
Press Secretary of the White house Sarah Sanders explained that a temporary compromise only works if it is to provide “first major contribution” to the construction of the wall.
However, as stressed by the leader of the Democrats in the Senate Chuck Schumer, Senate Democrats have made it clear to fellow Republicans that “will not support funding for the wall.”
Earlier Thursday, the Senate made another unsuccessful attempt to stop the longest in U.S. history, “shutdown”, blocking both the competing proposals.
The Republican proposal would allocate 5.7 billion dollars for the construction of the wall, a series of immigration reforms of limited scope and financing agencies before the end of this fiscal year. Voted for by 50 senators, against – 47.
Earlier, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell called the Republican initiative “a pragmatic compromise that could lead to a way out of this impasse immediately.”
“The choice is absolutely obvious, and the country is watching”, he added.
McConnell also stressed that the signature of the President could only get the plan of the Republicans. However, Senate Democrats rejected the White house proposal.
“If it was a compromise, the President would have discussed it with us,” said Democrat Senator from Virginia Tim Kane.
He added that disagreements about immigration can be addressed, but “it is difficult to resolve the problem with the party and President who believe in “shutdown””.
