Washington - Lawmakers’ talks on border security issues to avert another U.S. government shutdown have broken down over immigration detention policies, a Republican senator said on Sunday.

“The talks are stalled right now,” Republican Senator Richard Shelby told “Fox News Sunday” after a dispute over immigrant detentions. He said he hoped negotiators would return to the table soon.

Efforts in the U.S. Congress to resolve an impasse over border security funding intensified Friday and extended into the weekend as a special negotiating panel aimed to come to a deal by Monday, lawmakers and aides said.

Mick Mulvaney, acting White House chief of staff, told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday another federal government shutdown could not be ruled out. “Is a shutdown entirely off the table? The answer is no.”

One sticking point has been Democrats’ demands for funding fewer detention beds for people detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) than the Trump administration seeks. Republicans want to increase the number as part of their drive to speed immigrant deportations.

Shelby said talks were suspended over the issue but he hoped negotiators would come back to the table soon.

“I am hoping we can get off the dime later in the day or the morning,” he said. “We have some problems with the Democrats dealing with ICE detaining criminals ... They want a cap on them. We don’t want a cap on that.”

Shutdown # 2 over Herr Trumpf's ghetto wall won't stop the Dems in Congress from their investigations or Mr. Mueller's investigations into the trumpf crime family syndicate. Bezos vs Enquirer also looming over the Orange Kreplach.

(Gateway Pundit) – In 2016, numerous private emails from the Democrat Party (DNC) were released to the public by WikiLeaks. The emails unveiled activities of wrong doing by the Democrat and the Hillary camp and so the mainstream media (MSM) mostly ignored them. Soon after, the Democrats claimed that they were hacked by Russians.
New evidence shows that these emails most likely were never hacked at all, let alone by Russians.
In their recent book suggesting the Russians are to blame for Hillary’s 2016 election loss, far-left writers Michael Isikoff and David Corn, two individuals involved in promoting and releasing the fake Trump – Russia dossier, attempt to tie the release of DNC emails to Russia. In their book Russian Roulette, Isikoff and Corn share the following about the firm (CrowdStrike) the Democrats used to look into their data breach (p. 74) –
One of CrowdStrike’s first moves was to advise the DNC officials to do nothing. Don’t shut down the system. Don’t stop using it. The reason: Any dramatic action or change in routine could alert the hackers they had been spotted, and then the intruders might take steps to make it impossible to fer

Mueller has nothing on Trump. The Bezos affair has nothing to do with Trump.

In your twisted little mind, Trump is responsible for all the ills in the world.

(Gateway Pundit) – The body language expert – “Body Language Ghost” – reviewed President Trump’s 2019 SOTU. What she discovered is that the Democrat Party is in tatters.
The Body Language Ghost on YouTube studied Congress during the 2019 SOTU speech given by President Trump. What she found was not surprising. Vice President Mike Pence comes across as a really good guy. Overall, many of the characters were very stressed at the event (perhaps because of the rift the Democrat Party has created in their attacks of the duly elected President Trump?).
But one item that stood out was the makeup of the current Democrat Party. The Democrats have never been so far left. They are now open socialists. This showed during the SOTU. According to the body language expert (see starting at the 18 minute mark) just after President Trump says that they all will govern as ‘not as two parties but as one nation’:
And there you go, you start to see the split. So they stand up. They don’t all stand up. We’re not seeing the police, that church police that gives you the cut eye when you’re doing something that doesn’t go with the congregation’s doctrine!
