United States lawmakers announce tentative deal on wall, shutdown

Supporters of U.S. border security make a human wall to demonstrate their support for a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico at Sunland Park N.M. Feb. 9 2019

"And I've been watching where they're trying to say, 'Oh, the wall didn't make that much.' Well, you take a look at what they did with their past crimes and how they made them from very serious to much lesser ― you take a look at what the real system is". Weeks earlier, Trump said the change happened "overnight". While lawmakers and the White House had appeared optimistic at the end of last week that negotiators were closing in on a deal, talks faltered over the weekend over Democrats' demands to limit the number of migrants whom authorities can detain.

But if accepted, the deal would avert another chaotic standoff in which Trump has threatened to cut budgets from swaths of government this Friday.

Former Democrat Representative Beto O'Rourke pledges to make El Paso even safer without a wall as US President Donald Trump charges ahead with his pledge to build a wall.

In January, Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told Trump during a border security roundtable that the border wall worked in El Paso.

The march, organized by Women's March El Paso, is being billed as a "March for Truth: Stop the Wall, Stop the Lies".

On 15 February, the USA government may enter another round of partial shutdown over funding for the border wall project - the idea backed by Trump's supporters, including border patrol agents.

Asked if Trump would back the deal, Shelby said: "We believe from our dealings with them and the latitude they've given us, they will support it".

"It's elitist for people to say they don't want a wall".

It is likely that Trump may sign an order banning use of Chinese telecom equipment in US networks citing security issues. Huawei is a closely watched company".

O'Rourke said El Paso, Texas, is "one of the safest cities in America - safe not because of walls but in spite of walls".

Republicans tentatively agreed to far less money for Trump's border wall than the White House's $5.7bn wish list, settling for a figure of almost $1.4bn, according to congressional aides.

Down by the border, Trump was in outsized form, firing off his dubious claims on immigration while torching Democrats with fierce new attacks on climate change and abortion.

There is "tension surrounding Mr. Trump's planned visit to El Paso on Monday" and it is "revealing political fissures", Romero wrote.

The wall debate has deepened the already gaping rift between left and right since Trump's election.

He has been adamant that Congress approve money for the border wall, though he no longer repeats his 2016 mantra that it will be paid for by Mexico. While few Democratic candidates have focused on immigration in their launches, O'Rourke has described Trump's calls for the wall as the "cynical rhetoric of war, of invasions, of fear". But the work focuses nearly entirely on replacing existing barriers. That's despite being just across the border from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, a city plagued by drug violence.

"He challenged us", Trump said. The FBI's Uniform Crime Report shows that El Paso's annual number of reported violent crimes dropped from almost 5,000 in 1995 to around 2,700 in 2016.

Violent crime did not drop in El Paso "immediately" after a "powerful barrier" was put up. "Now it's part of the process for border security, but it's not the total panacea". Ted Cruz, a fact that Trump highlighted to the assembled crowd.
