Trump to `address nation` on border crisis

Also appearing with Morgan on the Law & Crime Network was Richard Clarke, a national security adviser to both Republican and Democratic Presidents who said the Trump administration is not being honest about the threat of terrorists coming across the Southern Border.

Pence told NBC's "Today" show on Tuesday, "I know the president has said that was his impression from previous presidents".

President Trump also re-asserted on Sunday that he's willing to declare a national emergency in order find funding to build a border wall.

But Tuesday morning, Pelosi and Schumer announced that they would "deliver a response to President Trump's 9:00 p.m. E.T. address Tuesday evening following the conclusion of his remarks".

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats have refused to include funding for a wall in spending bills for about one-quarter of the US government. Meanwhile, cable news networks including MSNBC, CNN, Fox News and Fox Business will all skip their usual programming for the address as well.

"This might be all about putting up a fight for the sake of the people who are watching, which are his base and his conservative allies out in conservative media", said CNN's White House correspondent Abby Philip. That shutdown exemption would break from past practice and could be challenged. With tax season around the corner, experts say there's a chance federal tax refunds will be delayed as well.

"I may declare a national emergency dependent on what's going to happen over the next few days", the president reiterated his intention while meeting the press on Sunday. This week, they will pass a series of bills to reopen federal agencies.

The only living former president yet to go on record denying that he praised Trump for trying to build the wall is Trump's immediate predecessor, Barack Obama. Over the weekend, travelers reported longer checkpoint lines at some airports, including LaGuardia in NY. Ninety percent waited less than 15 minutes, the agency said.

Mr Trump also visited the southern border last March.

The guardianship system has lead to Saudi Arabia considered as one of the most gender-unequal countries in the Middle East. But Abu-Dayyeh said knowing about a divorce does not mean a woman will get alimony or the custody of her children.

Talks over ending the shutdown have been at an impasse over Trump's demand for the wall.

"The barrier, or the wall, can be of steel instead of concrete, if that helps people". They "don't like concrete, so we'll give them steel", he has said. Also, sorry, no one will ever sympathize with the media scared or anxious that Trump, or anyone for that matter, would say mean, mean things about them. But I'm from Brooklyn.

The TSA admits the calls have increased but nothing extraordinary.

There is no end in sight for the shutdown that has halted a quarter of US government operations since December 22 and forced some 800,000 federal employees to be furloughed or work without pay.

He said that he and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen would be at the Capitol on Tuesday and Wednesday to brief lawmakers.

Warner also said he's anxious "about the fact that our Coast Guard, who's not been paid for weeks, is supposed to be interdicting both undocumented immigrants and drugs and narcotics". But McConnell has said he won't ask members to vote on bills that Trump won't sign.

Adding to concerns, federal workers might miss this week's paychecks.

Not so easy, many of them say.
