President Trump threatens to shut down the southern border entirely if the Democrats do not finance the border wall



President Trump threatened to close Mexico's entire southern border if his demands for more money to build a wall were not met.

Trump tweeted on Friday that "obstruction democrats" will not give him the $ 5 billion he demands for building his planned boundary wall, "completely closing the southern border".

"We will be forced to completely close the southern border if the obstruction democrats do not give us the money to complete the wall and also change the ridiculous immigration laws facing our country," tweeted the president. "Hard to believe that there was a congress and a president who would agree!"

The government has been closed since last week due to a deadlock between Trump and Democrats over funding a proposed security wall along the US-Mexico border. The closure of the government, which has left hundreds of thousands of federal employees jobless, is expected to extend into the new year.

On Thursday, the Senate was only four minutes away at the meeting, after the legislature had not appeared. They are not expected to arrive in Washington until the middle of next week.

Around 420,000 federal employees were forced to work without pay during the holidays and another 380,000 have been dismissed.

The impasse also comes as the second child who died at the border this month.

Felipe Alonzo-Gomez, an eight-year-old boy from Guatemala, died earlier this week in US Customs and Border Patrol.

On December 8, a seven-year-old girl named Jakelin Caal Maquin also died in the border patrol.
