WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 12th February, 2019) US President Donald Trump said on Monday that congressional Democrats would be responsible if another Federal government shutdown occurs after February 15.
"We need a wall [but] they do not want to give us a space to detain murderers, criminals, drug dealers," Trump said, referring to attempts by congressional Democrats to cap number of beds for apprehended illegal aliens.
US lawmakers temporarily re-opened the federal government for a three-week period until February 15 for the bipartisan House-Senate Conference Committee on Homeland Security to negotiate a deal on border security that is supposed to include funding for constructing a border wall.
