Wall Street wary of progressive Democrats on the House finance committeeWall Street is bunkering down for a wave of intense scrutiny as a group of progressive Democrats, including social media star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have joined a powerful House of Representatives committee overseeing banking activities. “It’s a huge victory,” said Ocasio-Cortez, at 29 the youngest member of Congress and a self-described socialist — a word that shocks conservatives, who brandish it as a dire threat.

Trump suggests he could deport 11 million migrants if he doesn’t get border wall funding in veiled shutdown threat: ‘Be careful Nancy’Donald Trump has implied he could launch a “big push” to deport millions of illegal immigrants if he does not get $ 5.6bn funding for his border wall, in a veiled threat to Democrats over the US government shutdown. As the partial shutdown – triggered by the president’s failure to agree with Democrats a government funding bill if it does not contain money for a wall – entered its 30th day, he warned speaker Nancy Pelosi to “be careful” after she and Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer rejected “compromises” he had offered to end the stalemate. In a live televised address on Saturday, Mr Trump had pitched extending protections to some undocumented migrants in return for funding for a wall on the US-Mexico border.
