USA government shutdown becomes longest in history

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz has been critical of President Donald Trump's response to disasters in Puerto Rico

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz has been critical of President Donald Trump's response to disasters in Puerto Rico

He has the right to undertake a construction project of this scale in times of war and national emergency, usually by allocating funds from the Department of Defence.

Trump described an emergency declaration as the "easy way out" and said Congress had to step up to the responsibility of approving the $5.7 billion he says is needed.

"Just as you fight every day to keep our nation safe, this president and this administration will keep fighting to build the wall and give you the resources and reforms you need to do your job", Pence told several dozen unformed agents.

Earlier, Trump backed away from threats to declare a national emergency and build the wall with money appropriated from military, water management and disaster management funds, among other sources.

Gov. Ricardo Rossello said the wall should not be funded "on the pain and suffering" of US citizens who have faced tragedy after a natural disaster.

The Trump shutdown, now in its 22nd day, passed on Saturday a notorious 21-day benchmark that occurred during the administration of US President Bill Clinton.

The National Federation of Federal Employees, National Association of Government Employees, the National Weather Service Employees Organization and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers - representing a combined 244,000 members working in coastal Virginia, southern California, central Montana and the Washington area - filed suit in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims Friday, demanding full compensation for time and overtime worked over the three weeks of the shutdown.

On the campaign trail, the president often said at rallies that Mexico would pay for the wall. After Pelosi said she wouldn't provide funding for a border wall even if rump reopened the government, the president said "bye bye", in his words, and left the room - a signature negotiating tactic for the former real estate developer and reality TV show star. They call the wall ineffective and say it's a symbol that does not reflect the nation's values. Later, Graham called on Trump to resort to emergency powers.

"I'm not going to do it so fast because this is something Congress should do", Trump told reporters during a meeting with law enforcement officials who favor the wall.

Experts have said even though the president may have the authority to invoke powers under the 1976 National Emergencies Act, using it will nearly certainly bring on a court battle. Senior aide Jared Kushner, who traveled with the president to the Texas border on Thursday, was among those opposed to the declaration, arguing to the president that pursuing a broader immigration deal was a better option. However, today he said he would not declare an emergency for now, preferring Congress to act.

"If they can't do it., I will declare a national emergency".

With the closure's growing impact on the economy, national parks and food inspections, some Republicans are becoming uncomfortable with Trump's demands.

Replied Hoyer, "Oh no, I think there was an election, and he did raise that question".

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill objected to the administration eyeing shifting unspent disaster funding Congress approved previous year for Army Corps of Engineer projects to help hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, Texas and other areas to pay for the wall.

But Trump has turned his single-minded push for more walls into a political crusade that opponents say is a stunt to stoke xenophobia in his right-wing voter base while willfully ignoring the border's complex realities.

Trump insisted there is absolutely no chaos in the White House, saying, "There's nearly nobody in the W.H. but me".
