As I type this Donald Trump is 1/2 hour from proposing a compromise to congressional Democrats that would offer some immigration back peddling for his entire $5 Billion wall money….
It was unlikely that Democrats will bite at the Trump offer….
Even before President Trump’s shutdown remarks on Saturday, Democratic aides on the Hill were dismissing his planned shutdown compromise offer as inadequate.
As first reported by Axios, Trump was expected to make two offers to Democrats in exchange for $5.7 billion in funds for a border wall: Extend DACA protections for Dreamers, who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, and extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders. But hours before the speech, Democratic Whip Dick Durbin said in a statement: “I cannot support the proposed offer as reported and do not believe it can pass the Senate.”
