President Trump is threatening to shut down the government if Congress doesn't give him funding for a border wall. The government runs out of money on December 21st, and Trump is insisting on several billion dollars for a border wall in a funding extension bill. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi argued Tuesday that a wall is not needed to boost border security, and that a "Trump shutdown" would be a lousy Christmas present for Americans.        Some of the migrants hoping to seek asylum in the U.S. have a demand: let them in or give them 50-thousand dollars to go home. Around a hundred Central American migrants went to the U.S. consulate in Tijuana, Mexico Tuesday with the demand, tired of waiting around for their asylum claims to be processed.        President Trump's former personal lawyer could be sentenced to prison today. Federal prosecutors say Michael Cohen deserves a stiff sentence because he wasn't forthcoming in the Special Counsel probe. He's pleaded guilty to tax and campaign finance violations involving hush money payments to two women who claimed they had affairs with Trump.        Search crews in West Virginia are looking for three people believed trapped inside an abandoned coal mine. Four people were initially reported missing near the mine about 50 miles southeast of Charleston on Saturday. One person was found on Monday and gave authorities information about where the others might be.        Pittsburgh police are honoring those affected by October's mass shooting at a synagogue where eleven people were killed. All vehicles that patrol the area are sporting a new decal. It says, "Stronger than Hate." Officials say the decal represents their support of the entire Jewish community.        The City of Oakland is suing the Raiders for moving to Las Vegas. Oakland City Attorney Barbara Parker has filed a federal complaint against the team and the NFL, saying they are in breach of contract and have violated federal antitrust laws. Parker said the NFL is using their status as a cartel to threaten cities like Oakland with relocation if they don't build new stadiums.
