Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) speaks with reporters ahead of the weekly policy luncheons on Capitol Hill in Washington, July 24, 2018.




Lawmakers' talks on border security issues to avert another U.S. government shutdown have broken down over immigration detention policies, a Republican senator said on Sunday.

"Talks are stalled right now," Republican Senator Richard Shelby told "Fox News Sunday" after a dispute over immigrant detentions. He said he hoped negotiators would return to the table soon.
