Trump offers immigration deal to end shutdown

Posted January 21, 2019

Democrats dismissed Trump's proposal even before his formal remarks. King said on John Catsimatidis' radio show.

The development came as tensions are also running high between Trump and Pelosi after she asked him to postpone the annual State of the Union address, slated for January 29.

Democrats, however, quickly rejected the deal, with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of NY emphasizing that Trump's offering some protections for DACA and TPS recipients "in exchange for the wall is not a compromise but more hostage taking".

Instead, as Politico reports, "By setting a model of unity, Schumer and Pelosi have also kept moderates in their caucus from breaking ranks and underscored how hard it will be for Trump to get Democrats to fold". He spoke of border security in broader terms, like in increasing the number of border agents.

Democrats expressed disappointment that the President's plan included only three years' of relief for the DREAMERS rather than a path to citizenship that would allow them to remain in the USA permanently.

A key point they are now rejecting (that they previously begged for-though this is the third time the President has offered it) is an extension of protections on almost 700,000 "dreamers" (non-citizens who entered the country illegally but of no fault of their own due to ages at the time.) Rejecting these protections now for a third time, DACA kids really should ask themselves, "Who in this debate is honestly thinking about what's best for me?" A number of additional measures such as humanitarian funding, drug detection technology, and extending protections for people who have fled wars and disasters were included as well.

Trump said he proposes "three years of legislative relief for 700,000 DACA recipients brought here unlawfully by their parents at a young age many years ago".

The design matches what we've seen in rumors: an all-screen phone with an elliptical hole cut out for dual front-facing cameras . The user also said that he could not remove the phone from its protective case to look at the design of the phone's edges.

There is one small silver lining in Trump's proposal.

Trump's offer to protect the children of illegal immigrants, known as "Dreamers", is seen as a major concession for an administration that has vowed to stem the flow of illegal aliens from across the southern border. In exchange the president wants the Democrats to vote in favor of $5.7 billion for the wall he seeks between the US and Mexico.

The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has approved several bills that would restore funding to shutdown-affected federal agencies.

Trump has already demonstrated weakness in other ways, in raising and then discarding the idea of using presidential emergency powers to order construction of his wall.

He said Trump hopes millions of Americans will pressure Democrats to go along with the deal.

The Senate's majority leader says he'll take action this coming week on President Donald Trump's proposal to end the partial government shutdown.

President Donald Trump is at the halfway mark in his presidency but is presiding over a shutdown now entering its 30th day.

The president had offered to grant three years of protection from deportation to undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to CNN.

But in a sign of the long odds such a deal would face, Graham's co-sponsor of the Bridge Act, Sen.

Chris Coons of DE, a Democrat the White House has looked to as a possible partner on immigration negotiations, said he will not support it. "Let's find a way to be able to get the government open because there are elements in this that are clearly elements that have been supported by Democrats strongly in the past".

"But if we reward this behavior it will never end, and the pain and chaos will be worse in the future", he wrote over Twitter.

"Any compromise with President Trump Is going to look like a surrender. That's not how this works". "She is so petrified of the "lefties" in her party that she has lost control.And by the way, clean up the streets in San Francisco, they are disgusting!" In December, she said Democrats largely consider the massive infrastructure project "immoral, ineffective, expensive".
