Gra­ham: Trump still wants to make deal

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - NATION & WORLD -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump says the dec­la­ra­tion of a na­tional emer­gency to fund the con­struc­tion of a wall on the U.S.-Mex­ico bor­der would be a last re­sort and still hopes to make a deal with Democrats to re­open the fed­eral gov­ern­ment, Sen. Lind­sey Gra­ham, R-S.C., said on “Fox News Sun­day.” Mean­while, Democrats re­mained res­o­lute that Trump and Repub­li­can law­mak­ers should end the shut­down be­fore re­turn­ing to the de­bate over how to best se­cure U.S. bor­ders and change im­mi­gra­tion laws. “More bor­der se­cu­rity — let’s have at it,” Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said on CNN’s “State of the Union” — “but while we’re hav­ing that de­bate, let’s re­open the gov­ern­ment.”

Trump has said he has an “ab­so­lute right to call a na­tional emer­gency” over bor­der se­cu­rity but isn’t rush­ing to use that op­tion.

of wild ca­nines found near Gulf Coast beaches carry a sub­stan­tial amount of red wolf genes — sur­pris­ing be­cause the an­i­mal was de­clared ex­tinct in the wild nearly 40 years ago. The find­ing has led bi­ol­o­gists and oth­ers to de­velop a new un­der­stand­ing that red wolf DNA is re­mark­ably re­silient af­ter decades of hu­man hunt­ing, loss of habi­tat and other fac­tors led the an­i­mal to near dec­i­ma­tion.
