REMARKS: Border security talks have 'stalled'

emoji-ts Updated 12 days ago, Sun Feb 10, 2019
As clock ticks, new hurdle emerges in border security talks
Mick Mulvaney

“You cannot take a shutdown off the table, and you cannot take $5.7 (billion) off the table, but if you end up someplace in the middle, yeah, then what you probably see is the president say, ‘Yeah, OK, and I’ll go find the money someplace else.'”

“It's all over the map, and I think it's all over the map because of the Democrats, The president really does believe that there is a national security crisis and a humanitarian crisis at the border and he will do something about it.”

Donald Trump

“I don't think the Dems on the Border Committee are being allowed by their leaders to make a deal. They are offering very little money for the desperately needed Border Wall & now, out of the blue, want a cap on convicted violent felons to be held in detention!”

“The challenge for me is as a border resident is that the powers that be want to paint the border as insecure as a way to make this a political football so that those who can be tougher on security emerge looking stronger in the eyes of their voters”

“I think the talks are stalled right now, I’m not confident we’re going to get there.”

“I think the talks are stalled right now. I’m hoping we can get off the dime later today or in the morning, because time is ticking away, but we’ve got some problems with the Democrats dealing with ICE, that is detaining criminals that come into the U.S. and they want a cap on them, We don’t want a cap on that.”

“We are not to a point where we can announce a deal, negotiations are still going on, There are good people on this committee so I have confidence that hopefully we will get something done very soon.”

“Now, apparently, not only is it enough they want to abolish ICE. They want to abolish the bed spaces available to the country to house violent offenders, so they can be held and deported, I promise you this. Donald Trump is not going to sign any bill that reduces the number of bed spaces available to hold violent offenders who come across our border. He can’t do that. He won’t do that, and you can take that to the bank.”

Xochitl Torres

“We know that we have bad actors. We have to stop drug smugglers and human traffickers from entering our country. We also know that we need an agency that will continuously adapt to changing threats and circumstances. And that's why you have to look at the border on a mile-by-mile basis”

As clock ticks, new hurdle emerges in border security talks
Tom Graves

“We were, you know, progressing well, This Week. I thought we were tracking pretty good over the last week. And it just seems over the last 24 hours or so the goalposts have been moving from the Democrats.”

Lucille Roybal Allard

“A cap on ICE detention beds will force the Trump administration to prioritize deportation for criminals and people who pose real security threats, not law-abiding immigrants who are contributing to our country”
