"Be Careful, Nancy!" Trump Warns Top Democrat Over Mexico Wall Deal

U.S. President Donald Trump laid out a proposal on Saturday to end a 29-day partial government shutdown, standing by his demand for $5.7 billion to build a barrier on the U.S. -Mexico border but offering some concessions to Democrats.

They assailed Trump's new offer as cynical, noting that it was the president who - by moving earlier to end the DACA program protecting 700,000 young immigrants and to expel about 300,000 others in a separate program - had placed in jeopardy many of those for whom he now offers temporary protection.

Even as his proposal was rejected by Democrats, Trump also faced fire from some conservatives who derided his immigration overtures as "amnesty". Trump's proposal also includes a three-year extension of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) that now lets people from certain countries stay in the United States if they left their homes to escape wars, disasters, or "other extraordinary and temporary conditions".

Vice President Mike Pence told a "FOX News Sunday" anchor that a discredited BuzzFeed story claiming that President Donald Trump instructed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress reflected a media "obsession" with the president.

"It was the President who single-handedly took away DACA and TPS protections in the first place - offering some protections back in exchange for the wall is not a compromise but more hostage taking", he stated.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of NY indicated Sunday that she'd back that proposal again. "That is because they know the Border issue better than anyone, and they want Security, which can only be gotten with a Wall".

Administration officials said the protections would apply only to those now in the Obama-era program shielding them from deportation, and the temporary protected status would apply to those who now have it and have been in the USA since 2011. At the same time, Trump continued to taunt Pelosi on Twitter, calling her a "Radical Democrat" days after he scuttled her secret trip to visit troops in Afghanistan aboard a military jet after she suggested that he postpone the State of the Union address.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer echoed her stance shortly after Trump laid out the details of his plan to reopen the government, now nearly a month in shutdown. Republicans hope to lure the votes of a few Democrats from Trump-friendly states to reach the 60 votes needed, but they may lose some hard-line conservatives in the process. "With bipartisan cooperation, the Senate can send a bill to the House quickly so that they can take action as well", McConnell was quoted by The Hill as saying.

Ahead of Friday's sentencing, lawyers for Van Dyke asked for probation , the minimum punishment in IL for second-degree murder. Lawyers on both sides agreed that if he behaves in prison the officer could be released in less than three and a half years.

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney also sought to increase the pressure on congressional Democrats in advance of Tuesday, the deadline for the next federal pay period and the day officials said McConnell would begin to move on legislation.

Democrats say they support border security but reject a wall. What we can not do, and I've actually had Republicans as well recognize this, is that we can not reward the kind of behavior of hostage taking.

"Re-open the government, let workers get their paychecks and then we can discuss how we can come together to protect the border", she said.

President Trump gave what he called a "major announcement" about the southern border and the partial government shutdown on Saturday.

As shutdown hits the Day 22 mark, it becomes the longest in U.S. history. "Walls are not immoral, in fact it is the opposite of immoral", Mr. Trump said.

According to Politifact, several of Mr Trump's immigration-related proposals have either failed or are bogged down in the courts. As a counter, President Trump denied Pelosi and other politicians the use of military aircraft to travel overseas to Afghanistan. "But you've got to start by reopening the government", US Senator Mark Warner said on NBC's "Meet the Press". "But it did nothing to get us closer to ending the shutdown", Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Sunday about the offer on CBS's "Face the Nation".

After Trump spoke on Saturday, Shahira Knight, his legislative director, led a conference call with House Republicans while Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen spoke with Senate Republicans.
