nearvideo Steve Scalise on the negotiations to end the partial government shutdown, a Republican agenda for the new Congress

Can a divided government to bring an end to the partial shutdown? Insight from the house majority whip Steve Scalise.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., on Fox News Sunday said that the ongoing partial federal government shutdown could end in a matter of hours, if the Democrats are ready to take your own advice from 2006.

“If the Senate is a different way and to approach a better way of border security, they should put the plan on the table. Chuck Schumer, has been said for this in the year 2006,” Scalise. “I would be curious to know what has changed. It is only that Donald Trump is the one you requested now? But if he is I think a better way to this country, it is incumbent on him to show the American people what the plan is.”

In the year 2006, with top Democrats-including Schumer and then-Sen. Barack Obama — the Secure Fence Act of 2006, Obama said, to allow the time would supports help for “better fences and more security at our borders” and would “come some of the flood of illegal immigration into this country.”

The White house called the Secure Fence Act, the mandate of the installation of fences along 700 miles of the southern border, to build the as one of the statutory reasons for a wall, the illegal immigration to be curtailed.

However, in 2007, Democrats in Congress changed the law, excluding the Federal government to build the fences, if it is not the “most appropriate” method for ensuring border security, and the legislation, the White house is required to separately funding from the Congress to be acquired.


Scalise charged that democratic leaders are now “afraid of the radical left base, which wants open borders,” and to insist on the retention of the partial government shutdown over the funding because of political expediency.

“In the last year alone, ICE agents rescued more than 900 children, the added sexual coercion and human trafficking,” Scalise. “This stuff is actually happening on the border.”

The Louisiana Republican pointed out to block that, while many of the immigrants are “good people”, such as Fiji-born 33-year-old California police officer Ronil Singh, is no longer required, or to immediately deport the “bad people” – accused as Gustavo Perez Arriaga, of the murder of Singh, the day after Christmas.

The former FBI assistant director Steve Pomerantz says that the law enforcement come, the biggest risk in contact with illegal immigrants in a series of criminals.


Fox News has learned that behind the scenes some of the senators this weekend to discuss a potential compromise to end the ongoing partial Federal government shutdown. A cross-party proposal for the provision of 5.7 billion US-dollars in funding for the border wall, as well as a Congress-reauthorization of the Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is for those to the U.S. illegally as children, along with several other immigration provisions.

It was also a special allowance be granted for some classes of Central American refugees, a more robust asylum status.

Speaking separately to the “Fox & Friends” earlier on Wednesday, Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, agreed with Scalise, noting that Arriaga had known gang affiliations, as well as two past DUI arrests.

Giuliani claimed that Singh was ‘ s death was “absolutely preventable, and sharply criticized Democrats against the stalled Criminal Alien Gang member Removal Act in the year 2017. The bill would authorities have to take the possibility of immigration enforcement action against suspected gang members, even if you are convicted of a criminal offence.

Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson this weekend also argues that the murder “could’ve been preventable,” saying that California prevents law was that the authorities of the release of information about Arriaga DUI arrests with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.



Scalise added that if Democrats win the house, as the new Congress Jan sits. 3, you need to work with the White house on a variety of other problems in addition to border security.

“We actually balanced our budget and we are talking about infrastructure and the many other questions we can transit in the New year,” he continued. “The Democrats need to be willing to work with this President. Have you seen a lot of focus on what you do, in terms of what the President calls ‘presidential harassment.’ This is not what the country wants to.”

Also on “Fox News Sunday,” Mohamed A. El-Erian, chief economic adviser to the European mega-financial services company of the Alliance, downplayed the danger of a recession, despite the recent wild stock market fluctuations, in the midst of the government shutdown.

“You would have to either be a big political mistake, or a huge market chance, push us into a recession, but we will slow down, unless we build a pro-growth policy-and I think the reference to infrastructure is important to support both parties, and an infrastructure effort would increase productivity,” El-Erian said.

He added that the “most likely outcome” is in this year that the economy “will remain strong, and grow 2 and a half to 3 percent,” with pay “continue to rise by 3 per cent, or the North, and the economy on a stand-alone basis, will look good. But because of what is happening in the rest of the world, as the liquidity conditions change, markets remain volatile.”
