House Dems seek to delay wall fight until September

Source: The Hill




BY NIV ELIS - 12/06/18 11:40 AM EST

House Democrats' preferred plan in their border wall dispute with President Trump would push a showdown over funding until the end of the fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30.

In that scenario, Congress would pass 6 of the 7 remaining appropriations bills for 2019, and a continuing resolution (CR) for Homeland Security, the bill that deals with border security funding.

"That’s pretty much where our position is now,” said Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) on Thursday.
That position may put House Democrats slightly at odds with their Senate counterparts.

While Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) floated the same approach last week, he is championing it as one of two options Democrats could abide. The second option, now apparently off the table, was to advance a bipartisan bill passed in the Senate Appropriations Committee this summer that included $1.6 billion in funding for 65 miles of pedestrian fencing.

2. Sept. 2020 seems timed to affect the election. Let's see how that plays out.

trump may be so unpopular by then, or even out, the wall issue will fizzle.
