Pelosi Drops the Hammer: ‘There’s Not Going to Be Any Wall Money’ in Funding Deal

The House speaker said "of course" she'd bring the vote to the floor if the conference committee comes out with a "bipartisan consensus", however, she didn't seem to compromise on funding for a wall.

"There's not going to be any wall money in the legislation", Pelosi told reporters on Thursday.

Democrats and Republicans in Congress are now trying to come up with a border security compromise - though Pelosi's tough statement Thursday did not augur well.

The Batman : c'est officiel Ben Affleck n'est plus Bruce Wayne !

Pelosi rejected as a "nonstarter" Trump's offer of three-year protection for illegal immigrants under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in exchange for a permanent wall. The president referenced migrant caravans massing in Central America, intent on making their way to the USA southern border.

"Winning is good", Pelosi quipped to a packed House, in a boast more characteristic of her Republican rival. I've got you covered. "Wall is already being built, I don't expect much help!" Pelosi did signal openness to "infrastructure" and "fencing".

"Because of the work we did years ago we've already built nearly 1100kms of fencing on our nation's border", said Democrat David Price.

Her remarks come a week after Democrats struck a deal with President Donald Trump to fund the government for three weeks and end the 35-day partial shutdown while talks on border security continued.

Trump has said if they can not come to an agreement on a bill that includes the money he demands for the wall, he'll declare a national emergency on the southern border that would allow him to secure funds without lawmakers' approval.

Trump said in the Oval Office on Thursday that he's "not concerned" about potential legal challenges if he declares a national emergency to build a border wall. The Democratic measure, totalling almost $22bn for US customs, border patrol and immigration agents, would significantly increase spending for scanners at ports of entry, humanitarian aid for apprehended migrants and new aircraft to police the US-Mexico border. The panel of old-school politicians from the powerful appropriations committees has ample expertise on homeland security issues, as many of them helped finance fence built over the years that stretches across much of the 3144-kilometre border. She said the Trump administration has failed to demonstrate that physical barriers are cost effective compared with better technology and more personnel.
