Trump will deliver prime-time address on immigration

President Donald Trump plans to deliver a prime-time address to the nation on immigration on Tuesday and visit the US-Mexico border on Thursday, as his administration grapples with a partial federal shutdown that began 16 days ago over his demand for funding for a border wall.
The Republican president showed no sign of backing off his pledge to build a wall, which he says is necessary to stem illegal immigration. Democrats in Congress disagree with new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling the building of a wall "immoral."
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders announced on Twitter that Trump will make a trip to the border on Thursday and said details would be released soon. The visit likely will highlight security concerns pushed by the administration as justification for the wall.
