"I don't care what the political ramifications are, our immigration laws and border security have been a complete and total disaster for decades, and there is no way that the Democrats will allow it to be fixed without a Government Shutdown", Trump said in a tweet Tuesday afternoon. Government funding expires at the end of September, just weeks before the midterm elections. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., is hoping to avoid "playing shutdown politics".
Trump has gotten some wall money from Congress, and likely will get more, though the total is well short of the $25 billion he has requested.
Also, in February, Trump said that he'd "love to see a shutdown" if the government did not focus on immigration.
Asked about specific requirements, Trump said he had no "red line" for what must be approved, and he made no comment on timing - before or after the election.

WASHINGTON - Immigration officials defended the integrity of their agencies' handling of family separations at the border, with one witness telling a Senate panel Tuesday that Border Patrol agents don't leave their "humanity behind when we report for duty".

US President Donald Trump returns to the White House holding his granddaughter Arabella's hand after spending a weekend in Bedminster, NJ on July 29, 2018 in Washington, DC. The Senate remains in session and is set to go on break the week of August 6 before returning for the rest of the month.
Rep. Steve Stivers, R-Ohio, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, the campaign arm for GOP House candidates, agreed.
"During the deliberative process over the previous year, we raised a number of concerns in the (Office of Refugee Resettlement) program about any policy which would result in family separation due to concerns we had about the best interests of the child as well as about whether that would be operationally supportable with the bed capacity that we had", White said.

Trump administration officials mounted a fierce defense Tuesday of the controversial family separation policy at the border, defending sites as "more like a summer camp" than holding facilities, and arguing that the detention system simply was not set up to facilitate court-ordered reunions easily.
The description was the latest disconnect between officials charged with carrying out a controversial "zero tolerance" policy that has led to the separation of thousands of children from their migrant parents, and outraged lawmakers and members of the public who accuse President Donald Trump of creating a child safety crisis. Filemon Vela of Brownsville and Henry Cuellar of Laredo, meanwhile, have blasted the Trump Administration for failing to meet a second deadline to reunite separated children with their parents. The administration says some of their parents have criminal histories.
Following a day of relative silence on Twitter, Trump says: "Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally, whether they have children or not - and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes".
