With Democrats insisting that the House government-funding bill protect the 800,000 so-called “Dreamers” brought to the U.S. by illegal-alien parents, the federal government could shut down Saturday, President Trump warned Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters at the beginning of a Cabinet meeting, Trump said Democrats “are really looking at something that is very dangerous for our country.”

“They want to have illegal immigrants pouring into our country, bringing with them crime, tremendous amounts of crime. We want [immigrants] to come on our basis,” the president said.

Congress has until midnight Friday to approve a short-term spending bill that would avoid a partial shutdown.
