The ball is in trump's court. I won't hold my breath waiting on trump's okay, or barring that, the Republican Senate having the balls to send him the bill anyway. The conservative Twitterati is against it, with Hannity calling it "a garbage compromise". And we all know trump doesn't like to stand up to them. I'd say the "smart" move for trump would be to sign it, then declare his BS emergency to try and circumvent Congress and get his wall built. It'll get dragged through the courts just short of forever allowing his base to still believe they're getting their wall. trump can then claim he won...somehow....and his base will pretend that it's true. Lawmakers say they have reached an ‘agreement in principle’ to avoid government shutdown Key lawmakers announced a tentative deal late Monday that would avert another government shutdown at the end of the week while denying President Trump much of the money he’s sought to build new walls along the U.S.-Mexico border. The agreement came together during intense hours of closed-door negotiations at the Capitol, as lawmakers resurrected talks that had fallen apart over the weekend in a dispute over new Democratic demands to limit immigrant detention. Democrats ultimately dropped some of those demands, which had come under fire from Republicans, clearing the way for a deal. The deal includes $1.375 billion for 55 miles of fences along the border, compared with $5.7 billion Trump had sought for more than 200 miles of walls. The deal omits a strict new cap Democrats had sought on immigrants detained within the United States — as opposed to at the border. At the same time, it limits overall levels of detention beds maintained by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, although GOP aides said ICE would have enough money and flexibility to maintain its current detention levels and add more when needed. White House officials were reviewing the terms of the deal, and Shelby said he was hopeful Trump would be supportive. But details of the compromise disclosed late Monday quickly came under fire from conservatives, raising the prospect of a backlash from the right that could ultimately render it unacceptable to Trump.
