Subject: pool report #3 - VP readout of shutdown meeting

The Vice President's Office provides this readout of today's shutdown/border security meeting. This is via a Pence aide:

Secretary Nielsen was able to provide a full briefing on the crisis at the Southern border.


The conversation was productive and they agreed to meet again tomorrow afternoon.

There was no in depth conversation about dollar figure, but the priorities for security. VP reiterated President’s position that we need funding for the border wall.


Dems requested further details in writing on needs of DHS. We will provide this tonight/tomorrow.
