The 30-day partial government shutdown is the longest in United States history, with 800,000 federal employees either working, or not working, without receiving pay checks. “You could open the government tomorrow,” Wallace told P...

A wall of counterintelligence secrecy could stand for decades

Lately, all our political controversies seem to involve a wall. The government is shut down by the fight over funding for a wall on the southern border, with President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dug in for trench warfare. She pulled the plug on his State of the Union address. He canceled her flight to Afghanistan. You can almost hear the 2020 election galloping toward us and the prospects for peace running off into the distance. But the other wall, which may turn out to be even ...

Donald Trump offers protection for 'Dreamers' in exchange for his wall in bid to end government shutdown

President Donald Trump last night offered to extend temporary deportation protections for people illegally brought to the US as children in exchange for funding for his border wall with Mexico.

Trump Offers Dems Temporary Immigration Sweeteners In Exchange For Wall Money

President Donald Trump on Saturday offered temporary support for some immigration policies favored by Democrats on the condition that Congress would appropriate $5.7 billion in border wall money and line up behind other priorities of his.

In an address from the White House, Trump went through a proposal he called “a commonsense...

Freshmen House Dems Take Wildly Different Tacks In Shutdown Approach

WASHINGTON (AP) — One group went to the White House with Republicans to talk about border security and reopening shuttered parts of the government. Another, led by social media stars, marched around Capitol Hill in a widely-posted but futile search for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — hashtag #WheresMitch. The Democrats’ two paths within a 12-hour stretch this week demonstrated the dramatic differences emerging among members of the historic freshman class of House Democrats that — tog...

WASHINGTON (AP) — One of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s guiding principles is: “There’s no education in the second kick of a mule.” Now, deep into a government shutdown he cautioned President Donald Trump against, McConnell is not about to let himself be kicked again. The Republican leader has been conspicuously deferential to Trump since the shutdown began. He’s waiting on the president and Democrats to make a deal to end it. The result is an unusually inactive profile for the GOP ...
