Senators Pray over new Border deal
Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley says he's praying that President Donald Trump will sign the border security deal into law to prevent another government shutdown.
Grassley was presiding over the Senate opening on Thursday when after the morning prayer, he added:
Congress is expected to vote Thursday on the bipartisan accord to prevent another partial federal shutdown ahead of Friday's deadline.
The package funds several departments but does not provide $5.7 billion Trump was asking for the border wall with Mexico. Instead, it allows nearly $1.4 billion for border fences and barriers.
