Demanski said she would send her out with some of the border agents on patrol. We would like to show you around!

Renea Perez, another Border Patrol wife, told "Fox & Friends" that, while the women feel safe in Rio Grande Valley, the men and women who patrol the southern border could still use some help in high-traffic areas.

A 17-person bipartisan committee of House and Senate lawmakers has until February 15 to negotiate border spending, Fox reports.

President Trump has said he wants the CBP to have 26,730 agents by the end of 2021, the Los Angeles Times reported. "I just felt it was really important that our leaders come here and see what's happening firsthand".

BP (Border Patrol) would like to cordially invite you to come visit McAllen, TX as President Trump did. "It's important for them to meet with the people that are here on a daily basis, that are witnessing it and the effect that it has on our country".

Perez also said that she was glad Demanski wrote her letter to Pelosi because she and her husband have yet to receive their almost four weeks of back-pay.

But Demanski noted that "it is not President Trump that is necessarily asking for the wall".

As the Oscars wrestle with various issues, the SAG Awards seemed to sidestep all of those landmines and controversies. Oh also earned an Emmy nomination a year ago for her role as Eve on BBC America.

"We finally have a president that has come here and seen firsthand the need for it, and has had our back", she said on Fox & Friends on Monday. "Bills don't stop, so we were feeling like we were forgotten". "I don't know of many presidents that could really have gone through the turmoil that he's gone through to try to help us get this".

Throughout the record-breaking partial government shutdown, Pelosi stood firm on her refusal for additional funding for a physical barrier at the border despite the requests from Border Patrol professionals. She claimed that a border would slow down the group and allow for additional agents to arrive to ensure that the migrants are stopped without putting her husband at significant risk. "They're saying, 'We don't want them to be here and we're going to make it hard for them to be here'".

"I would hope that she would go out with our agents right on the line and see", Demanski replied.

"After 36 days of spirited debate and dialogue, I have seen and heard from enough Democrats and Republicans that they are willing to put partisanship aside, I think", Trump said. "It felt like nobody cared", she said.

Menawhile, the president is also pushing back against criticism of his agreement to reopen the federal government without winning a promise of new funding for a border wall.

A Facebook group representing "Wives of the Border Patrol" featured several posts about MS-13 gang members in Boston and multiple calls for increased overall border security funding.
