Shutdown talks stalled

A stopgap Homeland Security bill is being discussed now.

Negotiations to avert another government shutdown abruptly fell apart over the weekend, raising the risk of another shuttering of services, a stopgap funding bill or a declaration by President Donald Trump of a national emergency at the southern border.

Talks over hammering out a border security package have cratered because of disagreements over immigration enforcement within the U.S., detention beds and paying for a border barrier, leaving lawmakers in the same place they’ve been for months. There was radio silence midday Sunday after Republican and Democratic negotiators had passed offers back and forth for more than a week.
