Amidst the border wall funding, the speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi have disagreed on the funding of the border wall, which she calls it as an immoral act, would, however, approve funds that won’t be for the wall.

“A wall is an immorality between countries,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday after Democrats passed their own plan to re-open the government. “It’s an old way of thinking. It isn’t cost effective.”

Said Pelosi: “We’re not doing a wall.”

She has however promised to reopen the government, as the Democratic package to end the shutdown includes a bill to temporarily fund the Department of Homeland Security at current levels — with $1.3 billion for border security, far less than Trump has said he wants— through Feb. 8 as bipartisan talks would continue. It was approved, 239-192.

Democrats also approved a separate measure to fund the departments of Agriculture, Interior, Housing and Urban Development and others closed by the partial shutdown. The bill, which would provide money through the end of the fiscal year Sept. 30, was approved, 241-190.
