Trump is threatening to close the government if you do not get $25 billion for the construction of the wall

President trump is threatening to close the government in September if Congress doesn’t allocate $25 billion on the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

«He is focused on border security. And, like all presidents, he wants it to happen now. But we are part of the legislative process slower and more cautious,» — said the Chairman of the Senate appropriations Richard Shelby (Republican from Alabama), who had a private meeting with trump.

In the beginning of this year of Senate Democrats agreed to the proposal of the President regarding financing of the wall, but the conditions for granting citizenship of 1.8 million participants of the program «deferred action for child immigrants» (DACA). Trump and the majority of Republicans have refused this offer. And now, despite threats from the President, the Democrats are unlikely to agree to the ultimatum trump, if the terms of the immigration deal will not change.

«Now is the best opportunity for Congress to modify the absurd and obsolete immigration laws. Do it. Our borders must be secure,» wrote trump this morning, June 19, in his Twitter.

#CHANGETHELAWS Now is the best opportunity ever for Congress to change the ridiculous and obsolete laws on immigration. Get it done, always keeping in mind that we must have strong border security.
