'Sons of Anarchy' Alum Danny Trejo Bashes Donald Trump's Border Wall Plan

The San Ysidro border crossing between the U.S and Mexico is closed to prevent a caravan of thousands traveling from Central America from crossing in Tijuana

Democrats said the White House offered to accept $2.5 billion for border security, but that Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer told Vice President Mike Pence that it wasn't acceptable.

"The president still says "wall" - oftentimes frankly he'll say "barrier" or 'fencing, ' now he's tended toward steel slats".

"For those that naively ask why didn't the Republicans get approval to build the Wall over the past year, it is because IN THE SENATE WE NEED 10 DEMOCRAT VOTES, and they will gives us "NONE" for Border Security!", he tweeted.

According to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, Kelly would often tell aides he the "worst job in the world".

"With the House Majority, Democrats will act swiftly to end the Trump Shutdown, and will fight for a strategic, robust national security policy, including strong and smart border security, and strong support for our servicemembers and veterans", Drew Hammill, Pelosi's deputy chief of staff, said Friday, according to Fox News.

The federal government is now in a partial shutdown over gridlock in Congress that failed to approve Trump's demand for $US5 billion dedicated to the wall's construction.

Amid the partial federal government shutdown, President Donald Trump tweeted an ultimatum Friday morning directed at Congress: Fund his promised border wall or the United States-Mexico border will "close".

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday that President Trump's strategies heading into 2019 are very beneficial to Americans.

Trump also falsely claimed that the deceased 7-year-old's father "said it was not their fault", referring to immigration authorities.

The Republican leader's warning came as a partial federal government shutdown was set to drag on into next week, with legislators in Washington failing to reach a compromise over Trump's insistence on funding the border barrier.

Trump tweeted again on Saturday - this time about the border wall, writing that they have resorted to the "hard way" for getting approval to build the wall.

Asked about Trump's threat on Friday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador told reporters it was an internal US government matter. While the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says the father told them he had not been able to give his daughter food or water for "days", the family has called for an "objective and thorough investigation" into the incident. Democrats rejected it, refusing to go above $1.3 billion in border security funding that would not include a wall.

But since the shutdown started, he has tried to blame Democrats.

"This is not Pelosi's first holiday vacation to Hawaii". Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly before their meeting at Trump International Golf Club, Nov. 20, 2016 in Bedminster Township, New Jersey.

Democrats maintain that they have already presented the White House with three options to end the shutdown, none of which fund the wall, and insist that it's Mr Trump's move.

"If demanding that all immigrants enter legally or apply for asylum in a safe and controlled environment at a consulate rather than at a border controlled by some of the most risky people in the world is not a 'reasonable rule, '" Horowitz concludes, "I'm not sure what is". But he has chosen not to use this time to engage in substantive negotiations over the budget or seize the public stage and make his case for funding the border wall.
