From the Associated Press: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump’s proposal for ending the 29-day partial government shutdown is a “non-starter.”
Trump wants to trade temporary protections against deportation for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants for money to build his wall. Democrats want the protections to be permanent and want him to reopen government before negotiating on border security.
The California Democrat says Trump’s expected offer is “not a good-faith effort” to help the immigrants and could not pass the House.
The White House has billed Trump’s plan as an attempt to end the shutdown. But it’s drawn nothing but negative reviews from Democrats so far.
