Trump lashes out at Dems for 'brand new demand' in border security talks
By Brett Samuels - 02/11/19 08:35 AM EST

President Trump on Monday lashed out at Democrats after border security negotiations hit a snag in part because of their desire to cap the number of beds available to hold detained immigrants.

"The Democrats do not want us to detain, or send back, criminal aliens! This is a brand new demand. Crazy!" Trump tweeted.

Talks among lawmakers negotiating on funding for border security faltered over the weekend as the dispute over Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) ability to hold immigrants in detention centers emerged as the latest sticking point.

"I think the talks are stalled right now," Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) said Sunday. "I'm hoping we can get off the dime later today or in the morning because time is ticking away. But we got some problems with the Democrats dealing with ICE, that is detaining criminals that come into the U.S. and they want a cap on them, we don't want a cap on that."
