The family of a Border Patrol agent that was killed in 2010, said on Tuesday that the Democrats should Fund agreed on President Trump’s request for $5 billion, which is a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border.

Brian Terry was killed in Dec. 14, 2010, during a shootout between agents and members of the so-called cartel “rip-crew.” His death suspended the Operation Fast and Furious in which the Bureau of Alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives (ATF) allowed criminals to buy guns in Phoenix-area shops with the intention of pursuing them, as soon as you make your way to Mexico. Two such weapons were killed in the scene where Terry.

“Eight years ago, our government has failed us, was shot as Brian and killed,” Terry’s uncle Ralph said in a statement. “Brian’s death sent a strong message to the nation on the need for border security. Unfortunately, some in Congress, the message is ignored.”


The wall Problem has threatened to Finance, the power of a partial government shutdown if the White house and the leaders of both parties can not agree in Congress on a way to the important ministries of midnight Friday. The distance to the dispute may affect the nine out of 15 Cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies, including the departments of homeland security, transportation, interior, agriculture, state and justice, as well as national parks and forests.

Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said late Tuesday his office was preparing a stopgap solution to keep the legislation, the government fully funded in February, after the new Congress is sworn in.


House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, have made it clear they are not interested in the approval, no funds for a border wall. Earlier Tuesday, the Senate Democratic aide told Fox News that Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., proposed $ 1.6 billion for border fencing, as in a cross-party Senate, plus an additional $1 billion, Trump could be on the border. Democratic leaders rejected the offer.

Late Tuesday, Trump tweeted that the Democrats “, not to say loud and clear that you want to build a Concrete wall – but we do not build the concrete wall that we build, artistically designed steel slats, so that you can easily see.


“It will be beautiful, and, at the same time, give our country the security that our citizens added deserve,” Trump.
