Trump urges the Democrats to end the Shutdown and claims that the arrests at the border have increased by 240%
President Donald Trump refuses to abandon its border wall financing and presses democrats to compromise and put an end to the partial closure of the government, which is now the longest in history.
Trump started tweeting Saturday morning and said: "Democrats must come back to Washington to end the Shutdown and at the same time end the terrible humanitarian crisis on our southern border."
He added stubbornly: & # 39; I am waiting for you at the White House! & # 39;
Then the president began issuing some statistics that reveal that arrests at the border are 240 percent higher.
President Donald Trump launched a Twitter message Saturday morning and urged the Democrats to come to Washington and end the longest governmental closure in American history
& # 39; I'm waiting for you at the White House! & # 39; He urged the Democrats to put the "terrible humanitarian crisis on our southern border". to end on Saturday morning
He shared statistics and claimed that border attacks were 240 percent higher and that 23 percent of federal detainees were illegal immigrants
Trump put pressure on the Democrats and said they could lift the government that left thousands of federal workers without a salary in just 15 minutes
• 23% of federal prisoners are illegal immigrants. Border arrest increases by 240%. In the large state of Texas, between 2011 and 2018, there were a total of 292,000 crimes by illegal aliens, 539 murders, 32,000 sexual assaults, 3,426 sexual assaults and 3,000 weapons charges. Democrats are coming back! & # 39; He wrote.
Trump argued that the federal crisis could be resolved within minutes if the Democrats came to him.
Democrats can solve the Shutdown in 15 minutes! Call your Dem Senator or Congressman / man. Tell them to get it done! Humanitarian crisis, & tweeted Saturday morning.
Last week, Trump dedicated his first Oval Office address to his rally for his controversial boundary wall and claimed $ 5.7 billion for the wall.
He claimed that illegal crossings at the border led to humanitarian and security crises on the southern border.
According to an NPR fact-finding check of his address, however, illegal border crossings in the last fiscal year (ending in September 2018) were lower than in 2016 and 2014, with the number of illegal crossings reaching a high point in 2000.
In his speech, he claimed that ICE officials made 266,000 arrests of extraterrestrials with criminal records, including those accused of or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sexual offenses and 4,000 violent killings.
According to the factual check, the number is correct, but it is misleading because many of those migrants are only guilty of immigration-related offenses rather than of all violent crimes.

The government was officially partially closed on 22 December.
Federal workers began to feel the impact of the standstill on Friday when approximately 800,000 employees missed their first salary.
The partial closure ensured that 420,000 American workers were forced to work without pay and 380,000 to be redundant.

The shutdown went into the 22nd day on Saturday and established a new record for the longest shutdown in history, surpassing the previous 21-day record at the end of 1995 and early 1996 during the Clinton administration.
Trump went on a tweetsession this weekend.
On Saturday morning early, he launched a furious rant after he read a New York Times report that revealed that the FBI was investigating him to determine whether he was a secret Russian agent after he dismissed FBI director James Comey.
Trump tweeted on Saturday morning: Wow, I've just heard in the Falling New York Times that the corrupt former FBI leaders, who are almost all fired or forced to leave the office for some very bad reasons, opened research on me, because no reason and without proof, after I had dismissed Lyin & James Comey, a total sleaze!
President Donald Trump shot back in a furious Twitter rant on Saturday after it was reported that the FBI started an investigation to determine whether he was a secret Russian agent in the days after he fired FBI director James Comey

He continued: & # 39; The funny thing about James Comey. Everyone wanted to fire him, both Republican and Democrat. After the witnessed and failed Crooked Hillary investigation, where she was interviewed on July 4, not recorded or sworn in, and where she said she knew nothing (a lie). & # 39;
Referring to nameless former law enforcement officials, the New York Times reported Friday that the FBI opened the combined criminal and counter-espionage survey in May 2017.
The FBI was in complete turmoil (see N.Y. Post) because of Comey's bad leadership and the way he dealt with the Clinton mess (not to mention his usurpation of Ministry of Justice powers). My firing of James Comey was a great day for America. He was a Crooked Cop.
& # 39; … fully protected by his best friend, Bob Mueller, and the 13 Angry Democrats – leaking machines that are NOT interested in the real amalgamation (and more) of Crooked Hillary Clinton, its Campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Just look!
I've been much harder on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton. Perhaps more difficult than any other president. At the same time, and as I have often said, it is good to do something with Russia, not a bad thing. I fully expect that we will once again have good relations with Russia!
& # 39; Lyin & # 39; James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter S and his beloved, agent Lisa Page, & more, all dishonored and / or fired and caught in the act. These are just some of the losers trying to get a number from your president. Part of the witch hunt. Think of the "insurance policy?" This is it! & # 39;
Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, rejected the alleged investigation as unfounded and pointed out that no evidence has been published in the past 20 months to support the idea that Trump is a secret Russian agent.
"The fact that it goes back a year and a half and does not bring anything to a violation of national security means that they have not found anything," Giuliani told the Times.
