Chuck Schumer Says President Trump Should 'Stay Out' of Bipartisan Border Talks

A caravan of about 1,600 Central American migrants camped Tuesday in the Mexican border city of Piedras Negras, just west of Eagle Pass, Texas. "The President is living in an alternative universe based on a false narrative and offensive comments about our way of life".

Furthermore, the fact check noted that Federal Bureau of Investigation data shows El Paso's violent crime rate has fallen beneath the average for other similarly-sized cities from 1985 to 2014, disproving both of Trump's assertions.

"As the president continues his fight to secure our border, there's no better place to demonstrate that walls work than in El Paso", said Michael Glassner, CEO of the Trump campaign. "We've had a fence for 10 years and it has impacted illegal immigration and curbed criminal activity", the mayor tweeted.

If Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader McConnell embrace a bi-partisan agreement, if it suits President Trump he will likely sign it.

He argued that a wall could stop crime ranging from sex trafficking to gang violence. The governor of the northern state of Coahuila in Mexico described the migrants as "asylum seekers", suggesting all of them had expressed intentions of surrendering to USA authorities.

"They look to be making this a campaign issue", Trump said, acknowledging the public opinion has been with Democrats on the wall and the government shutdown.

Trump has been seeking $5.7 billion for border-wall construction.

She was among around 50 people at "Noche de Chanclazos" or flip-flop night. But Trump rejected the deal, which did not include any money for a wall, starting a shutdown that lasted 35 days and was the longest in USA history.

A deal struck between Trump and congressional leaders is keeping the government open until February 15, while House and Senate negotiators try to reach a compromise that Trump will sign.

"You never know what's coming in", Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber said Tuesday.

He said the White House's preference was for Congress to approve the money on its own, but he said the Trump administration was finalizing plans for how it would act if lawmakers refuse.

Additionally, the number of large groups - more than 100 people - encountered by Border Patrol skyrocketed this fiscal year, the official said. "Border enforcement means anyone who wants to smuggle drugs or get through the border have to use the cartels to be successful".

Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan has authorized "the repositioning of approximately 250 active duty military personnel from current border security support missions in Arizona to the vicinity of the Eagle Pass" in response to the approaching caravan, Pentagon spokesman Capt. Bill Speaks said in a statement.
