Trump to visit Mexico border

Donald Trump plans prime-time address and visit to border as government shutdown drags on

Sources familiar with the matter indicated that the president is not expected to announce he's declaring a national emergency in his address Tuesday night, but Conway told reporters the idea remains under consideration and is under review by lawyers in the White House counsel's office.

Pence was joined by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who said that status quo funding and laws are "not able to address the crisis that we're seeing at the border".

Schumer signaled disappointment with the networks' decisions to grant the president a slot at 9 p.m. Tuesday for a brief address to the nation, and again blamed him for the partial government shutdown that's now in its third week.

"We're going to continue to carry that case forward until the Democrats in Congress come to the table and start negotiating, not just to end the government shutdown but to address what is an undeniable crisis at our southern border", added Pence who also lobbied for Trump during appearances on CBS and NBC.

Democrats, who control the U.S. House of Representatives, have rejected Trump's demand for US$5.7 billion to help build such a wall.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said a new batch of polling shows voters back Democrats or want a compromise now.

"Even though the White House does claim that they believe the president's case will improve the polling for the wall, there's no reason to believe that's true", she said.

Sanders said Trump is "not going to stop" until he figures out the best way to protect USA citizens and that "whatever action he takes will certainly be lawful".

Ahead of the shutdown, Trump agreed to sign a budget without wall funding.

The administration letter includes a request for $800 million for "urgent humanitarian needs", a reflection of the growing anxiety over migrants traveling to the border - which the White House said Democrats raised in the meetings.

Trump may intend to use the address to declare a "national emergency" over immigration, which he thinks would allow him to have the military build his wall.

Trump is asking for $5.6 billion for the border wall.

Trump had campaigned on the promise that Mexico would pay for the wall.

Pelosi and Schumer say in the statement that Trump has "the power to stop hurting the country" by ending the shutdown.

"As we speak, we are in the middle of an unprecedented crisis on our middle of an unprecedented crisis on our middle of an unprecedented crisis on our southern border", he said October 30, 2016, speech in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
