Mr Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has recently seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall along the US-Mexico border.

"I think certainly I have expressed more than a few times the frustrations with a government shutdown and how useless it is", Capito said Tuesday.

Noting that his administration was doing everything in its power to help those impacted by the situation, Trump said the only solution was for Democrats to pass a spending bill that defends the borders and reopens the government. But Trump rejects that legislation because it doesn't have funding for his border wall.

Mr Trump said the wall is not "immoral" as he said wealthy politicians build walls and fences around their homes because they love the people on the inside, not because they hate people on the outside.

"The fact is, the women and children at the border are not a security threat, they are a humanitarian challenge - a challenge that President Trump's own cruel and counterproductive policies have only deepened", Pelosi said.

"And he just got up and said, 'Then we have nothing to discuss, ' and he just walked out".

He appealed to Congress to end "this crisis" and for every American to "call Congress" and tell them to "secure our border".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., speaks at an event alongside Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and federal government employees who are asking for an end to the partial USA government shutdown on Wednesday.

Sears rejects bailout bid, hundreds of stores likely to close
Under the plan the remaining Sears and Kmart stores would close, meaning about 68,000 employees would lose their jobs. Lawyers for Lampert and his hedge fund, ESL Investments, were pressing for more time to sweeten his offer.

Nearly twice as many people tuned into Fox News as they did other cable networks to watch President Donald Trump's address to the nation from the Oval Office on Tuesday.

Trump will follow up his speech with a rare trip to the Mexico border on Thursday, but showed little enthusiasm for either the Oval Office speech or the border trip during an off-the-record lunch Tuesday with television anchors, The New York Times reported.

"This is a humanitarian crisis - a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul", he said, emphasizing that the federal government "remains shut down for one reason and one reason only: because Democrats will not fund border security".

A Trump 2020 campaign official said: "Net win".

While the standoff continues, some 800,000 federal employees are furloughed or working without pay. "The life of an American hero was stolen by someone who had no right to be in our country".

Fox News also had more total viewers than broadcast network ABC, which averaged 5.8 million viewers during Trump's remarks and the response, which was delivered by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. So sad. So bad. In the run-up to the midterm elections, the President used campaign rallies to warn of the threat of an "invasion" by a caravan of migrants moving north through Mexico towards the United States border.

In fact, a study by the libertarian Cato Institute previous year found that crime rates among immigrants in Texas - both legal and unauthorized - were lower than those among native-born Americans.

"There's no crisis at the border", said Sen.
