30K Border Crossings Expected Between January 25 and February 15 as Government Reopens Without Wall Funding

At least 30,000 illegal border crossings are expected to occur as President Trump signs off on a bill to reopen the federal government until February 15 without securing any funding for his proposed United States-Mexico border wall.
On Friday, Trump announced in a Rose Garden speech at the White House that he would sign a temporary funding bill to reopen the federal government until February 15. The funding measure does not include any additional funds for a southern border wall to be constructed, though the president said a conference of Republican and Democrat lawmakers will negotiate a border security package for the time being.
Between January 25 and February 15, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) illegal border crossings indicate that there could be at least 30,000 border crossings at the U.S.-Mexico border. This accounts for the roughly 1,300 crossings that occur every day at the border.
