President Trump has told advisers he believes the fight for the wall, even if he never gets money for it, is a political win for him.
"We will be out for a longtime unless the Democrats come back from their "vacations" and get back to work", he tweeted.
"We know that roughly, almost 4,000 known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Fox News, "and we know that our most vulnerable point of entry is at our southern border".
But most lawmakers left town on Friday and will not return before Monday, leaving little chance for any solution to the stalemate before then.
The White House is working to identify federal dollars that could be redirected to construct a border wall, if President Trump invokes his emergency powers to do so.
A demonstrator holds a sign signifying hundreds of thousands of federal employees who won't be receiving their paychecks as a result of the partial government shutdown during a "Rally to End the Shutdown" in Washington, US, Jan. 10, 2019.
But some say Trump has no other choice as the partial government shutdown stretches into its 22nd day on Saturday, making it the longest in history.
The potential use of a national emergency declaration by Trump for the border wall shows the extent to which the party is willing to yield on treasured values - in this case, the constitutional separation of powers - to steer clear of confronting the White House and give the president what he wants. I am in the White House ready to sign!
A declaration would allow Trump to spend the money without congressional approval.
"I have the absolute right to do it". This, as polls suggest President Trump is getting most of the blame for the shutdown.
"Mr. President, declare a national emergency now".
"I just watched a Fake reporter from the Amazon WashingtonPost say the White House is 'chaotic, there does not seem to be a strategy for this Shutdown".
The New York Times said it was not clear if the investigation to determine whether Mr Trump was deliberately working for Russian Federation or had unintentionally been influenced by Moscow was still being pursued. "I do have a plan on the Shutdown". "In fact, there's nearly nobody in the W.H. but me, and I do have a plan on the Shutdown".
Senior aide Jared Kushner, who travelled with the president to Texas, is among those urging caution on the declaration, according to a person familiar with Kushner's thinking but not authorized to publicly discuss the issue. On Friday, the president hosted a roundtable discussion with state, local, and community leaders to call attention to what he describes as a humanitarian and national security crisis.
And most narcotics are smuggled through heavily guarded checkpoints in vehicles, the government's Drug Enforcement Administration said in a 2017 report.
President Donald Trump and members of his administration are being called out for their incessant lies about a US-Mexico border wall - in particular, the claim that terrorists come to the United States through the southern border.
"We need to look at the facts", she said.
The impasse is over the $5.6bn needed for a wall on the border with Mexico that Trump promised on the campaign trail, saying Mexico would pay for it. Democrats who control the House are determined not to give it to him, whether or not - and most analysts say not - he is correct that savings from a new trade deal will mean Mexico pays after all. The White House also was eyeing military construction money, another politically hard choice because it would take away from a backlog of hundreds of projects.
In September 2017, Hurricane Maria tore through the U.S. territory in the Caribbean, killing some 3,000 people, causing catastrophic material damage and crippling the island's power grid.
