Report: Trump Will Offer Dems Deal on DACA Recipients for Border Wall Funding
Pelosi has reportedly rejected the Trump offer. I suspect Trump knew the Democrats would, now he can declare an emergency and build the wall.
‘It’s gotta end now!’ Trump makes case for sweeping immigration reform that will trade a DACA fix for the $5.7 billion he demands for his steel border wall
President Trump outlined a plan to end the government shutdown in a Saturday afternoon address, offering three years of legislative relief for 700,000 DACA recipients — including protection from deportation —and Temporary Protective Status awardees.
He also offered $800 million in urgent humanitarian assistance, 75 new immigration teams to reduce the court backlog of 900,000 cases, which he called an ‘impossible nightmare,’ in remarks from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.
In exchange, he said he wants $5.7 billion for the ‘strategic deployment of physical barriers, or a wall,’ that he will use to put ‘steel barriers in high priority locations’ along the U.S.-Mexico border.
