As the partial government shutdown neared a month, President Donald Trump used a speech Saturday to offer Democrats protections for some migrants in exchange for his $5.7 billion border wall, but top Democrats rejected it even before he spoke.

In remarks he billed as a “major announcement,” Trump cited a proposal developed by administration officials and Republican lawmakers.

Congressional Democrats, however, said the offer as reported would not lead to a deal that would end the shutdown, in part because it would allow Trump to pursue an expensive and ineffective wall.

“His proposal is 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,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement issued before Trump’s speech. https://bit.ly/2FD1DRk
