Last night “in principle” lawmakers in Washington DC hammered out a deal to secure the border and avoid a government shut down. $1.375 billion for 55 miles of “Border Barrier”, 17% decrease in ice detention beds from 49,000 to 40,000.

Doesn't matter now since he declared the emergency and (When it does) get brought down in courts it will be the best deal he will ever get for his dumb wall.

I would not take it and I hope Trump rejects it as well. That’s not a deal.

Why are they so caught up with decreasing detention needs all of a sudden? Doesn't decrease the demand for them, and will only leave people without them. Send like everything the Dems fight for (legalizing Dreamers, sanctuary cities/states, abolishing ICE, no wall, etc) is the exact opposite of border security, while saying they are for it. Kind of how should is the opposite of "women's reproductive healthcare".

Honestly. Being flexible was needed. Each side gave something.
Don’t like it, but can go forward with it!

DHS says they can get the extra beds.
The wall is being built, even without the money, and money can be shuffled around, I can deal with that.

That would be a horrible deal. No limit should be placed on the beds required to detain criminals, $50 billion should be allocated to building the wall.

Mexicans should pay for the wall, just like trump promised.

It’s a bullshit deal. President Trump should not sign this deal. Only 55 miles of border fencing and a decrease in detention area for illegal immigrants, you got to be kidding me.
