President Donald Trump Offers Democrats Deal: Three Years for DACA Recipients in Exchange for Border Funding

On Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump delivered a short speech to offer the Democrats a series of concessions on DACA and other tings in exchange for spending on border security.

The highlights of the plan includes:

  • $5.7 billion for wall
  • Millions in humanitarian aid & drug detection tech
  • 2,750 new border agents
  • 75 new immigration judges
  • 3 yr relief for DACA recipients
  • 3 yr extension for TPS

“This is a common sense compromise both parties should embrace,” Trump said.

Indeed, during the speech, Trump noted that all of the points in his proposal have been accepted by the Democrats at one point or another in the past. Each point, he said, has gotten a Democrat “yes” vote before.

However, the two extremes on the issue in the House of Representatives have both already rejected the proposal.

Immigration hardliner Steve King (R, Iowa) has said “no amnesty for a wall.”

And on the opposite side, far left-winger and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D, Calif.) said the deal was a “non-starter” before the president was even done talking.

But this speech does show President Trump as the negotiator and the one trying to compromise. A blanket “non-starter” from the Democrats shows them as the obstinate mules refusing to even talk.

This will also set up the Democrats running for president in 2020 to look like they refuse to govern but only want their own selfish policies if they all reject Trump’s proposal.

There will be a lot more analysis of this speech over the next few hours, for sure.
