Democratic and Republican negotiators are holding talks to try to reach a deal on border security.

Negotiations broke down during the weekend over funding for immigrant detention beds and physical barriers along the US-Mexico border.

Trump’s December demand for $5.7bn to help construct a border wall triggered the 35-day partial government shutdown that ended last month.

Trump agreed to reopen the government for three weeks to allow congressional negotiators time to find a compromise on government funding for the rest of the fiscal year, which ends on September 30, to avert another shutdown on February 15.

They remain divided on the detention of undocumented immigrants and on funding for President Donald Trump’s promised border wall with Mexico.

With the possibility of another partial U.S. government shutdown looming if they fail to reach a deal by deadline, U.S. President Donald Trump blasted the Democrats, saying they do not want to give them funding to detain migrants and want to allow criminals, including murderers and kidnappers, into the country.
