On Fox News, Senator Joe Manchin stressed the importance of ending the government shutdown. Manchin said he would support President Trump's state of emergency and proposed wall funding in exchange for immigration vote.
MANCHIN: Over the years Congress has giving away a lot of authority to the Executive Branch. So if that's wrong then we ought to take it back, but if the President declares a state of emergency he has a right to do that. It will probably go to the courts and be contested. If that gets us out of a shutdown then so be it, I want to get out of this shutdown.
