"Nothing But Compassion" For Migrants, Says Outgoing White House Chief

General John Kelly, who leaves the administration on Wednesday after a rocky 18-month tenure, broke with the president on key areas during an intriguing exit interview with The Los Angeles Times newspaper.

Trump says a wall is needed along the whole border to keep out migrants trying to enter the country illegally, casting them as an "invasion" force of unsafe criminals.

"An all concrete Wall was NEVER ABANDONED", Trump tweeted Monday.

The White House says President Donald Trump is not reaching out to Democrats as a partial government shutdown appears set to extend into the new year.

Trump wants $5 billion as a down payment on the barrier that could cost more than $20 billion, but Democrats have only agreed to $1.6 billion to improve border security, but no wall money.

President Donald Trump tweeted an open invitation Monday morning to Congressional leaders in town to visit him in the Oval Office.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment. He also said the compromise should include changes in federal law to discourage people from trying to enter the United States illegally.

That theory will be put the test this week when the new House majority led by Pelosi gavels into session with legislation to end the government shutdown.

Kevin McAleenan, the commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection, said on ABC's "This Week" that investment in Central America was one element of a "multi-faceted problem" that also requires funding border security.

It's time for Chelsea to decide on Hazard future, says Sarri

Rail plan puts North and South Korea on track for closer ties
"Toward South Korea , he will stress the need to push for inter-Korean projects without being swayed by other countries". Earlier in the day, a special Kaesong-bound train transported some 100 South Koreans to the ceremony.

Without funding for Trump's wall, the package is a "nonstarter", said Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, in a tweet.

On CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, Shelby urged both sides to stop the blame game and said Democrats should articulate what kind of border security they can support.

It marked the starkest admission yet by the president's inner circle that his signature campaign pledge, which sparked fervent chants of "build that wall" during Mr Trump's rallies and is now at the center of a budgetary standoff, would not be fulfilled as advertised.

"It is with them", she said, explaining why Trump was not reaching out to Democrats. The Senate unanimously approved an extension of Homeland Security through February 8 before the shutdown began, only to see the bill die in the House after Trump rejected the plan.

As long as the debate holds up approval of a wider spending bill, about 800,000 federal employees are not getting salaries and non-essential parts of the government are unable to function.

The partial government shutdown began on December 22 over a dispute on funding for a proposed border wall with Mexico.

"We've asked for about 1,000 miles of wall". If some moderates start to balk at Trump's hard-line strategy, they could back a bill to reopen the government and raise the prospect of overriding a Trump veto.

This is a Democratic proposal, and it is unclear if it will be taken up by the Senate, where Republicans will expand their majority come Thursday, or if President Trump will support it. Speaker-designate Pelosi has previously stated that the House would take up a bill to reopen government as a first order of business. "Since we're talking about $5 billion for border security, not $25 billion, we're probably going to have to scale things back", Graham said.

He reportedly suggested working with the Democrats on helping the young immigrants known as Dreamers. Sen.
