Trump offers temporary protection for immigrants in return for wall funding

Despite that plea, Trump on Saturday again injected a political note when he said of Pelosi - his primary interlocutor in the negotiations since Democrats regained control of the House in November - that "she's under total control of the radical left".

He said his plans had been dismissed before he had even presented them.

The president is also expected to include extending protections for those with Temporary Protected Status after fleeing countries affected by natural disasters or violence.

All are expected to receive back wages once the shutdown ends, but in the meantime many have had difficulty paying bills or even feeding their families.

Democrats have insisted that there are better, cheaper ways to achieve border security.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump's forthcoming proposal for ending the 29-day partial government shutdown is a "non-starter".

The shutdown that has left hundreds of thousands of workers without paychecks is now in its fifth week. He is still betting that the public will accept his argument that a physical wall is needed to protect Americans from an invasion of refugees and an inflow of illegal drugs.

Pence said Trump "set the table for a deal". What we can not do, and I've actually had Republicans as well recognize this, is that we can not reward the kind of behavior of hostage taking.

He later tweeted, "I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown".

As tensions over the border wall and the government shutdown continued unabated last week, Pelosi demanded that Trump postpone his scheduled January 29 State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress until after the government is reopened, submit it in writing to Congress or make the speech at the White House.

NBA To Formally Review Cavaliers' Signing Of Patrick McCaw
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no details of the probe have been revealed publicly. Some have speculated the Cavaliers made the moves to spite the franchise that beat them in three of the past four NBA Finals.

He warned again on Saturday about "caravans" moving northward toward the USA, saying, "This country can not be secure" without a wall.

Democrats were now proposing $563 million to hire 75 more immigration judges, who currently face large backlogs processing cases, and $524 million to improve ports of entry in Calexico, California, and San Luis, Arizona, a Democratic House aide said Friday.

This is while two congressional aides cited in local press reports also pointed out that Democratic leadership was not consulted on the forthcoming White House proposal, further noting that Democrats had previously rejected similar ideas. He still wants $5.7bn (£4.5bn) to fund the wall.

While the harsh rebuke from the Democrats was rather predictable, there have been some dissenting voices among hardline conservatives, though the Congress Republicans overwhelmingly sided with Trump.

Earlier on Saturday, Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Senate Democrat, said he could not support such an offer.

The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss the details publicly.

"We still have to make sure our kids eat, make sure to have a roof over their head", said Shalique Caraballo, whose wife is a TSA worker in Atlanta. "If we don't do that, we're a very, very sad and foolish lot". He also pledged more law enforcement to assist the border agents for necessary manpower to actually secure the border and shut down illegal activity and persons attempting to harm America.

"Let's at least pay them on Thursday, so they don't have to go through more angst", Warner said. Trump tweeted Sunday morning. The White House said there was no such leak.

Trump, in turn, postponed her fact-finding trip with other congressional leaders to visit USA troops in Afghanistan.

Besides the paltry sum of $5.7 billion he is requesting for the border barrier (paltry because the Democrats approved $40 billion during the Obama administration for identical purposes) they also rejected a few other key points.
