President Trump in a White House TV show on Saturday offered the Democrats a compromise package on immigration in an attempt to put an end to almost a one-month partial closure of the government – although some prominent Democrats rejected the olive branch as a "non-starter" before Trump to have spoken.
Trump has announced he is ready to support the three-year extension of the protection of 700,000 immigrants who have come to the country illegally as children and are deported during the DACA deportation of children's arrivals. This, in exchange for the $ 5.7 billion that he has requested for a barrier on the southern border with Mexico. "It's not immoral," he said, adding that the wall "will save many lives and stop the drugs from flowing into our country."
"This is not a concrete sea-to-sea construction," he said, addressing some previously expressed concerns. for the so-called "wall". "These are steel barriers in high priority areas."
The proposed deal will extend the protection of 300,000 recipients of the Temporary Protection Status (TPS) program ̵
"Our immigration system needs to be a source of pride, not a source of shame as it is all over the world, "Trump said before urging politicians to" take off their bumper "and find solutions. will allocate USD 800 million for drug detection technology to provide ports of entry, 2 750 new border agents and law enforcement specialists, and 75 new immigration judges to reduce the enormous number of asylum requests.

He said all his suggestions were backed by Democrats before.
He spends much of the conversation talking about the dangers an open alliance poses as "a very wide and open door for criminals and gang members to enter the United States." But it also annoyed the possibility of a wider, wider immigration reform if its proposals were accepted by Congress.
"If we succeed in this effort, we will have the best chance for a long time in real, bipartisan immigration reform, and it will not stop here, it will keep going until we do it all," he said. Government sources told Fox News before the announcement that the speech will form the basis for new legislation he hopes to receive before the Senate. The proposal is similar to a compromise proposed by Senator Lindsey Graham, RS.C., which will include three-year work permits for recipients the DACA and extending the legal status of the holders s of TPS in exchange for funding the wall. called the proposal "fantastic" in a tweet after the announcement.
"Let me finish," he said. "Republicans were planned to be informed of the proposal in a conference call at 17:00 ET.
Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Praised Trump for his "bold decision" to reopen the government. "Compromise in a divided government means that everyone can not get everything he wants every time," McConnell said in a statement. "The president's proposal reflects this, and he achieves a fair compromise by including priorities on both sides of the path."
R-Utah voiced his support for the president's compromise plan, promising support for him through Twitter. "POTUS has presented a reasonable, bona fide proposal that will open the government again and help defend the border, vote for it, and work to encourage my Republican and Democrat colleagues to do the same," Romney writes. 19659003] But Trump's proposal was quickly abolished by the Democrats, and in fact the chairman of Nancy Pelosi came out before the announcement to say that the expected proposal was a "compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which was unacceptable and general, redstavlyavat good faith efforts to restore security in people's lives. "
" It is unlikely that any of these provisions alone to move in Parliament and taken together, they are non-starters, "she said in a statement. "First, this proposal does not include the permanent solution for the recipients of the dreamers and the TPS that our country needs and supports."
A similar tone, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Sumer, DN.Y., said it was a pity that in its effort to resolve the closure, Trump "continues to offer unilateral and ineffective remedies."
He urged the president to open the government as a prelude to productive and bipartisan solutions on immigration and the southern border
"It was the president who took the defense of DACA and TOS independently," Sumer said. "Offering some defenses back in return for the wall is not a compromise but a bigger hostage."
The government's partial closure, which lasted for 29 days, and led to hundreds of thousands of federal workers who work or work without pay, is the result of the Republicans 'and Democrats' failure to agree on Trump's funding for walls. Trump said he would not sign a bill to open the government unless he included this funding until the Democrats refused to consider the $ 5.7 billion figure instead of offering $ 1.3 billion for overall border security. a week when it seems that both sides have hardened their positions and Trump has canceled the Afghan Democratic delegation's military flight after Parliament Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on him to postpone the Union's address to the state of the Union earlier this week . On Saturday before the speech, Trump described Pelosi as "controlled by the radical left".

"First, President Trump and Senate Majority Leader [Mitch] McConnell has to open the government today. Secondly, I can not support the proposed proposal, as reported, and I do not believe it can pass the Senate. Thirdly, I am ready to sit at any time after the government is open and work to resolve all outstanding issues, "he said in a statement.
Pelosi said the Democrats intend to pass six bills next week and another legislation to open. government "in order to be able to negotiate fully on border security proposals."
