Trump plans 'major announcement' about US-Mexico border and longest shutdown ever

US President Donald Trump sought to break the government shutdown impasse Saturday, offering to extend protections for young people brought to the country illegally as children, if Democrats give him $5.7 billion for his long-promised border wall.

While few would argue that a humanitarian crisis exists at the US-Mexico border, as the demand for people who want to enter the US and the Trump administration's hardline response overwhelm resources, critics say the president has dramatically exaggerated the security risks and argue that a wall would do little to solve existing problems.

Donald Trump delivered a televised address on Saturday in a bid to put an end to the month-long government shutdown and bring a compromise to the divided Congress.

It also would extend protections for those with Temporary Protected Status, a program that allows people from certain countries affected by natural disasters or violence to remain in the U.S.

Trump said that the Republican leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell, would now take the plan to the senate floor.

The person would not discuss what Mr Trump planned to offer to the Democrats, who now control the US Congress, beyond saying that it may have something to do with immigration.

In a speech at the White House on Saturday, Trump said, "This is a common sense compromise both parties should embrace".

I'd prefer to be in the changing room, speaking to the players, to talk about why we lost from a tactical point of view. Don't get me wrong we could have lost this game anyway but I feel we lost it because of a lack of determination".

It was unclear whether the developments, following days of clashes between Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., might represent serious steps toward resolving the partisan fight or instead may simply be political posturing as the partial shutdown reached a record 29th day.

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

Top Democratic aides are criticizing Trump's offer because it isn't a permanent solution for Dreamers and because it includes money for the wall, which the party strongly opposes.

He again spelled out his reasons for building the wall and stressed it was not a continuous structure, just one of steel barriers in high-priority areas.

The Dreamers are now protected from deportation under a programme that allows them to work but not get citizenship.

Will the USA government shutdown end soon?

The divide between the Trump-led Republican Party and the Democratic Party led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the border wall led to the shutdown, which has rendered 800,000 federal government workers without work and crippled key departments.The shutdown- the longest in United States history- entered its 29th day, as Trump Saturday made the announcements.

Pelosi earlier in the day accused the Trump administration of leaking her plan to fly commercially to Afghanistan, forcing her to scuttle the trip because of the heightened danger, after word of her intentions began spreading among several media organizations.

"That is why I'm here today", he said. Mitt Romney (R-Utah). The latter, despite being at odds with Trump, called it a "reasonable, good faith proposal that will reopen the government and help secure the border". Schumer blamed Trump for closing the government and halting DACA and TPS protections in the first place, and concluded that there was only one way to find a compromise: end the shutdown and start a bipartisan discussion.

"Dreamers" is another word for illegal immigrants who came to the country as minors.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) chastised the Democratic opposition to the proposal as "completely irrational obstructionism", while Sen.

That partial shutdown has meant that 800,000 federal workers were either furloughed or working without pay since December 22. Now, he must take action to open up government, Pelosi said.

Polls showed Americans increasingly blaming Trump for the shutdown, the 19th to occur since the mid-1970s.
