Trump gave Democrats they could’t refuse, but this is the radical far left Democrats who are unreasonable and rejected Trump’s deal. Trump offered DACA recipients a 3 year extension and TPS Illegal Immigrants 3 year extension of safety as well.
Apparently Democrats turned down the deal before President Trump gave his special address over the border crises.
Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi rejected the plan calling it “a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives. “It is unlikely that any one of these provisions alone would pass the House, and taken together, they are a non-starter.”
Democrat Senator from Illinois Dick Durbin stated he “cannot support the offer as reported and do not believe it can pass the Senate.” He said he would join talks to “resolve all outstanding issues” on immigration after the government is funded.”
We will see what the backlash is for the Democrats for rejecting the proposal, which puts all DACA recipients at risk with all TPS Illegals. The government shutdown has entered day 29 with no end in sight, and Federal employees are going to continue without pay. At some point the federal employees will turn on the Democrats for not negotiating with Trump.
