Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson on Thursday that there will be absolutely no deal to end the government shutdown without funding for a border wall.
“Our focus is on border security. What we’ve completely focused on is keeping the President’s promise, to build a wall and to pass legislation that provides other support for border security,” said Pence.
Pence also said that Trump wants to negotiate, noting that “the better part of a year ago the President expressed a willingness to deal with the issue of dreamers in a compassionate way.”
That said, the bottom line is this according to the Vice President: “We will have no deal without a wall”
NOTABLE: Mike Pence leaves door open to some sort of “amnesty” for undocumented immigrants as part of border security deal to end shutdown.
