Money for Wall to save Dreamers: Trump's Faustian deal to Democrats

Money for Wall to save Dreamers: Trump's Faustian deal to Democrats”

But with the possibility of the 5.7 billion US dollars for the border wall diminishing, the proposal is unlikely to break the impasse.

Trump said he is here today to "break the logjam" and provide Congress with a path forward to end the shutdown and solve the crisis on the border.Defending his plan for the border wall, he said, "The radical left can never control our borders".

United States president Donald Trump on Saturday sought to break the stalemate that has shut down the federal government partially for 30 days now with a proposals that was rejected by Democrats as a "non-starter" even before he had spelt it out in a speech he had teased the day before as a "major announcement" coming.

Democrats also want Mr Trump to reopen government before talks can start.

Pointedly ignoring his personal comments, Pelosi on Twitter emphasized the need to end the partial government shutdown, which has inflicted increasing pain around the country as it entered its 30th day.

Axios reported that Trump would throw his support behind the BRIDGE Act, which would provide three years of temporary legal status and work authorisation for the Dreamers.

Trump is also unlikely to move anyone on the left, but he and the White House are hoping there's a strong group of independents who will see Trump's effort to negotiate and begin blaming Democrats for the shutdown.

It's not clear yet whether the FTC has managed to make a strong enough case but truth be told it doesn't look good for Qualcomm . However, Williams said, "We needed their supply of chips". "We would have loved to continue to have access to Qualcomm's tech".

It's a turnaround from Senator McConnel's previous statement that no vote should be held in the Senate until Mr Trump and Democrats agreed on a bill.

In exchange for wall funding, Trump said he would extend temporary protections for three years for "Dreamers", young people brought to the country illegally as children.

He said that while there would be "no big push" to remove the 11 million people in the country illegally, he warned: "'but be careful, Nancy!"

On Saturday, Trump proposed to Democrats to offer longer protections for the DACA recipients in exchange for 5.7 billion US dollars to provide funds for a wall to be built along the U.S.

The president also proposed a slew of measures to increase border security, including an increase in law enforcement, saying he was offering a "commonsense compromise both parties (Republicans and Democrats) should embrace".

And Pelosi has said members of her party would not support any spending package that included funds for the wall that Trump envisions.

In his short speech at the White House, Trump again pushed for $5.7 billion in US funding to build "steel barriers in high-priority locations".

Jayme told the woman said she had walked away from a cabin where she'd been held captive, a cabin not far from Nutter's home. Jeanne Nutter was walking her dog on Thursday afternoon when Jayme approached her for help and revealed her identity.

But unlike his first address on January 9, a prime-time broadcast from the Oval Office that leaned heavily about the dangers of crime and illegal drugs flowing across the border, Trump on Saturday softened his tone.

However, there did appear to be one concession on the design of the US-Mexico border wall.

The Dreamers are now protected from deportation under a programme that allows them to work but not get citizenship.

Trump's Friday evening tweeted announcement came after Pelosi on Friday canceled her plans to travel by commercial plane to visit USA troops in Afghanistan, saying Trump had caused a security risk by talking about the trip.

The Dreamers, which refers to undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, are protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The Trump administration announced in September 2017 it would rescind DACA, but the policy remains in effect under a court order.

"I can't see us keeping federal employees, 800,000 people, out of work while we go back and forth on negotiations". The agency has been experiencing far higher than usual unscheduled absences during the shutdown - and now the agency says staffers have been calling out of work because they can't afford to get there.

Trump walks out of shutdown talks with a 'bye-bye'
Chuck Schumer , the Democratic leader in the Senate, told journalists: "The president just got up and walked out". Exiting the White House, Democratic leaders did not dispute the substance of Trump's retelling of events.
