Pelosi Rejects President Trump’s Offer of DACA Amnesty for a Border Wall – Before the Speech Was Even Delivered
President Trump delivered a major announcement Saturday at 4 PM concerning the “humanitarian crisis” at the border and the government shutdown.
President Donald Trump gave Democrats a new proposal to end the shutdown and secure our southern border — by promising three years of protection for DACA recipients.

Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi rejected the offer before President Trump began his speech.
Once again the Democrat Party rejected amnesty for illegal alien Dreamers in exchange for a much-needed border barrier.
Democrats are insane.
CBS News reported:
However, Democrats seem unlikely to take the deal. A senior House Democratic aide told CBS News that Democrats do not truly consider this a compromise, as Mr. Trump still wants full funding for the wall. They also believe that the deal does not offer full protection to Dreamers and is a temporary fix.
Pelosi said in a statement before the speech that based on reports of the deal, she would not support it, calling it a “nonstarter” which was unlikely to pass the House.
“Unfortunately, initial reports make clear that 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,” Pelosi said. “For one thing, this proposal does not include the permanent solution for the Dreamers and TPS recipients that our country needs and supports.”
