In a bid to convince Americans to support his demand for a $5.7 billion wall on the southern border, US President Donald Trump cited the murder of Indian-origin policeman Ronil Ron Singh, who was shot and killed during a traffic stop on December 26 allegedly by an illegal immigrant.
Calling the immigration matter "a crisis of the heart and soul", Trump said the U.S. is "out of space" to accommodate illegal migrants, adding that it "strains public resources and drives down jobs" that "hurt all Americans".
Speaking after Trump's address Tuesday, the Kentucky Republican said Trump's plan "simply builds on earlier legislation" that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats supported in the past.

The partial government shutdown reached its 18th day, making the closure the second-longest in history. Also noteworthy: The contingent of active-duty USA troops at the border has been more than halved, dropping from a peak in the fall of about 5,900 to about 2,350 last week.

He also has failed to persuade most Americans that he's right. Farmers and small businesses won't get loans they need. With Trump and the Democrats holding their ground, there's no telling when it'll end. But that legislation didn't authorize the kind of wall Trump has always been advocating since he launched his campaign. It also had a mandatory employment verification system to ensure all USA employees are authorized to work in the country.

Pelosi and Schumer also emphasized an obvious fact: On the first day that the 116th Congress was in session, House Democrats, who now hold the majority, passed government spending legislation that was almost identical to what Senate Republicans passed at the tail-end of the 115th Congress. And even if it did, it hasn't even been passed by Congress yet.

The President's address was the latest in a series of public appearances - including a Cabinet meeting, a statement in the White House briefing room at which he was flanked by border patrol officers, and a news conference last week - in which Mr Trump simply reiterated his demands without offering any concessions.
