Image result for Sean Spicer: Trump not backing down on wall funding in spending bill

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said President Trump will not budge on his main priorities for the spending bill to keep the government fully running past Friday, namely his controversial wall for the southern border.

Spicer told reporters Trump is negotiating with House and Senate leaders on the continuing resolution to keep the government open and avoid a partial shutdown. It appears the wall along the border with Mexico might end up being one of the major sticking points in negotiations to get a bill on Trump's desk by Friday.

    Trump I assume still has e-verify in the current bill. That's bigger than the wall. So, some good news.

    If true, that suggests Trump has poor advisers...

    Also, what about birthright citizenship?

    1. the authority, but I read there is very little other than to get it started in their fund.
