According to the banner on drudgereport.com, an agreement has been reached to end the government shutdown, and President Donald J. Trump will make the announcement live at 1 p.m. Friday afternoon.
“Source: Shutdown agreement reached; announcement set for 1PM; govt to reopen ‘temporarily,'” the site said in all capital letters.
The apparent deal comes on the midst of growing angst among federal workers, who will miss their second paycheck Friday, though they will be back-paid in full when the shutdown ends.
Last weekend, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi swiftly rejected a deal that would have reopened the government. Trump offered temporary extensions for DACA recipients in exchange for border wall funding.
Thursday, reports swirled that Trump was planning to declare a national emergency in order to build the wall.
President Donald Trump seems closer to finally declaring a national emergency to build the southern border Wall to secure the United States of America from criminal cartels, drug smugglers, and terrorists. (READ: How President Trump Can Build An Emergency Border Wall With Best Results).
“The massive amount of aliens who unlawfully enter the United States each day is a direct threat to the safety and security of our nation and constitutes a national emergency,” a draft of a presidential proclamation reads.“Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C 1601, et seq.), hereby declare that a national emergency exists at the southern border of the United States,” the draft adds.The draft was updated as recently as last week, a US government official told CNN.

Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
