Democrats Refuse to Compromise on Border Before Negotiations Even Start

Republican and Democratic leaders haven’t even started their post-government shutdown border-wall negotiations yet, but the prospect for any deal might be dead already.

When President Donald Trump ended the longest shutdown in history last week, he said he needed a compromise from Democrats, even suggesting protecting so-call “Dreamers” in exchange for border-wall funding.

But Democrats are already ruling out the idea.

“The fading prospects of the negotiation mean Trump is likely to receive only a fraction of the $5.7 billion he’s been seeking for his southern barrier in any deal, if one can be put together at all by Feb. 15,” Politico reports. “Then he would have to decide whether to unilaterally move funds around by declaring a legally dubious national emergency or embrace another debilitating shutdown.”
