Dems are the cause of the government shut down.
Senator Chuck Schumer lambasted President Donald Trump over his demand
that American taxpayers pay for a border wall which has led to a partial

Kirstjen Nielsen about border security but provided no details about the
The big Trump surprise is his Midnight Tuesday
