The White House said on Tuesday it was searching for ways to unilaterally fund the building of a controversial wall on the US-Mexico border that Congress is balking at, possibly easing chances of a government shutdown this weekend. 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell introduces a continuing resolution to ensure federal funding through Feb. 8, although Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer says the House and Senate "will not approve a wall."
