‘Major concerns’: Resolution of border wall showdown not likely to end shutdown

Even if the wall debate is resolved, it’s not necessarily the end of the shutdown that has gone well into its fourth week.

Lawmakers said plenty of other lingering questions are tucked inside the spending bills, including abortion policy, immigration detention — even horse slaughter inspections — all of which will complicate the fight.

Border security is the big hurdle, but those other issues are still “major concerns,” said Rep. John Moolenaar, Michigan Republican.

Indeed, the White House has already signaled a veto on the kinds of bills House Democrats powered through their chamber last week. He said they overspend the president’s targets and include provisions he would never accept, including reversing the Mexico City Policy that prevents taxpayers from funding international groups that deal in abortions.
