On Saturday, President Donald Trump laid out a broad immigration deal that would fund his signature border wall in exchange for temporary protections for more than one million immigrants.
The proposal is similar to one Trump handed over to Congress earlier this month. It includes funds for humanitarian assistance, technology, border agents, law enforcement personnel, and immigration judges. Trump laid out additional concessions Saturday that include providing three years of deportation relief to about 700,000 undocumented immigrants who were brought to the US as children and 300,000 immigrants with temporary protected status.
Shortly before the President’s address, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi released a statement rejecting Trump’s leaked proposal, calling it a “non-starter”.
So the US government shutdown remains in a stalemate.
