U.S. budget talks have hit another impasse over immigration, a key Republican negotiator said on Sunday, raising the prospect of a second government shutdown if no agreement is reached by this week's deadline.
Republican Sen. Richard Shelby, Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee told Fox News Sunday he put the odds of a deal at 50-50. While the two sides are now said to be close to a dollar amount for border barriers, Democrats are making a higher level of funding for barriers contingent on the new cap for detention beds - something Republicans are resisting. Two sources involved said if the bipartisan talks continued at an impasse, House Democrats were considering moving a package that would include a continuing resolution for the Department of Homeland Security through September along with six other outstanding funding measures at full year levels.

On Sunday Trumptweeted that Democrats "are offering very little money for the desperately needed Border Wall & now, out of the blue, want a cap on convicted violent felons to be held in detention!" "We don't want a cap on that", Shelby said.
