President Trump, in a televised White House address Saturday, offered Democrats a compromise package on immigration in an effort to end the nearly month long partial government shutdown — although some prominent Democrats were dismissing the olive branch as a “non-starter” before Trump even spoke.
Trump announced that he was prepared to back a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 immigrants who came to the country illegally as children and were shielded from deportation under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This, in exchange for the $5.7 billion he has requested for a barrier on the southern border with Mexico.

Deal - Protections - Recipients - Temporary - Status
The offered deal would also extend protections for 300,000 recipients of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program — which protects immigrants from designated countries with conditions that prevent nationals from returning safely.
“Our immigration system should 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 armor” and find solutions.
Drug - Detection - Technology - Ports - Entry
It would allocate $800 million for drug detection technology to secure ports of entry, 2,750 new border agents and law enforcement professionals, and 75 new immigration judges to reduce an immense backlog of asylum requests.
He said that all his proposals have been supported by Democrats before.
Course - House - Speaker - Nancy - Pelosi
And, of course, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the House Hive-mind rejected the President’s deal as soon as he spoke it.
The hypocrisy and blatantly self-serving actions of the House Democrats...
