On Saturday, President Donald Trump announced that he was willing to compromise with Democrats in order to end the government shutdown and get workers their pay.
In his offer, he promised to defend DACA illegal aliens by extending their permits to remain in the United States for another three years.
The offer was made in exchange for getting the $5.7 billion funding for the border wall.
However, Nancy Pelosi quickly rejected the compromise offer, revealing that it is she and her fellow Democrats who are unwilling to work together or come up with a compromise.
As federal workers struggle to pay their mortgages, utility bills and put food on the table, hopefully they will realize who is the one unwilling to compromise.
Fox News – Trump offers immigration compromise to end partial shutdown; Dems cool to offer – President Trump, in a televised White House address Saturday, offered Democrats a compromise package on immigration in an effort to end the nearly monthlong partial government shutdown — although some prominent Democrats were dismissing the olive branch as a “non-starter” before Trump even spoke.
Trump announced that he was prepared to back a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 immigrants who came to the country illegally as children and were shielded from deportation under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This, in exchange for the $5.7 billion he has requested for a barrier on the southern border with Mexico.
“Walls are not immoral,” he said, adding that a wall “will save many lives and stop drugs from pouring into our country.”
“This is not a concrete structure from sea to sea,” he said, addressing some previously expressed concerns about the so-called “wall.” “These are steel barriers in high-priority locations.” …
Trump’s compromise also offered protection to another 300,000 illegals who were under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program.
Pelosi instant refusal reveals Pelosi’s lying when she was again made Speaker of House.
She said that she hoped that there would be bipartisanship cooperation in Congress.
Before she finished speaking, she also announced her stance on no compromising with President Donald Trump on funding for the border wall.
This is further proof that Democrats care nothing about the American people, including federal workers and place illegal aliens above and over American citizens.
