Trump plans to make Dems an offer to end shutdown

Trump plans to make Dems an offer to end shutdown

"Sadly, given the security concerns and unless the government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after the government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to Congress on January 29", Pelosi said. Democrats, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have been adamant that they do not want to give Trump any funding for a wall along the southern border.

Hundreds of thousands of federal workers are furloughed or required to work without pay as the shutdown, the longest of its kind in United States history, drags on. Many public services are unavailable to Americans during the closure.

Pence said the president would listen to proposals to amend his deal.

"800,000 Americans are going without pay", she tweeted.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and congressional Democrats are losing one big voice in their opposition to President Donald Trump's push for a border wall: The Washington Post's editorial board.

Senator Chuck Schumer said Mr Trump had previously "single-handedly" taken away Dreamer and TPS protections and that offering some protections back was "not a compromise but more hostage taking".

"We should not be in this situation", the Mississippi Democrat said on ABC's "This Week".

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell welcomed the plan as a "bold solution", while a spokesman said McConnell would seek Senate passage of the proposal this week.

"If the president can arbitrarily shut down the government now, he will do it time and again", Warner said. McConnell calls it a fair compromise for ending the shutdown.

At one level, the USA government shutdown is a criminally easy problem to solve.

"I'm hopeful the President's statement tonight will allow us to immediately reopen gov, put WVians back to work & start negotiating long-term immigration reform". He did not distinguish between illegal migration and asylum seekers.

Mary Ann Mendoza, whose police officer son was killed in 2014 by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record who was drunken driving, said on Fox & Friends that there's nearly "nothing more to say" when it comes to the House speaker.

Other Democrats on the Sunday morning news shows rallied behind Pelosi and dismissed Trump's latest proposal. After his announcement Saturday, some supporters appeared unhappy with his effort to bridge the divide with Democrats.

"No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer", Trump tweeted Sunday.

"We voted for Trump and got Jeb!" she added, referring to Jeb Bush, who challenged Trump for the Republican nomination in 2016 and supported a broad immigration overhaul that would have given immigrants without documentation a path to legal status.

"This is not an amnesty bill", Pence said. A federal judge in Texas refused to order to halt DACA in August 2018, although he said that it was likely unlawful and predicted that the move to stop the programme would eventually succeed.

"If the bill is filibustered on Tuesday. people will not get paid", he said. "First, President Trump and Senate majority leader McConnell must open the government today", Durbin said in a statement.

Trump is scheduled to make the announcement from the White House at 4 p.m.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer also dug in during an appearance in NY. It offers only three years of protections for the DACA recipients and those who hold TPS, which the Trump administration has also moved to end for several countries.

Administration officials said the protections would apply only to those now in the Obama-era program shielding them from deportation, and the temporary protected status would apply to those who now have it and have been in the US since 2011.

"This is not amnesty, there's no pathway to citizenship, there is no permanent status here at all, which is what amnesty contemplates", Pence said.

- Three years of legal protections for so-called "Dreamers", a group of about 700,000 immigrants who entered the country illegally as children. Officials said the exemption would apply to about 300,000 people who now live in the USA under the program and have been here since 2011.
