House Democratic Leader Proposes 'Smart Wall' For Border

A top Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives has suggested a new way to end the partial government shutdown, by giving President Donald Trump the $5.7 billion he has requested for border security.

Reuters reports U.S. House Majority Whip James Clyburn told reporters that Democrats could fulfill Trump’s request for security at the US-Mexico border by constructing a “smart wall” that includes drones, X-rays, sensors and more border patrol agents.

Trump's partial government shutdown has left 800,000 federal workers without pay for 33 days as of Wednesday.

The U.S. Senate has scheduled votes for Thursday on competing proposals to end the shutdown.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to hold a vote on a Democratic proposal that would fund the government for three weeks but does not include the requested $5.7 billion.

Trump has rejected all legislation that does not include border wall funding.
