    Trump to Offer Fix for Shutdown and Border ‘Humanitarian Crisis’

    Trump to Offer Fix for Shutdown and Border ‘Humanitarian Crisis’

    January 18, 2019

    Neil Munro




    President Donald Trump will offer another compromise deal on Saturday to end the shutdown over the border wall, and Democrats will approve $1.1 billion to buy extra surveillance technology and additional immigration judges, according to Friday evening media reports.


    CBS reported:

    A senior administration official told CBS News Chief Washington Correspondent Major Garrett that Mr. Trump will present what the White House believes could be a deal to end the shutdown. The deal was largely influenced by talks between Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.



    Kushner and Pence met with McConnell in the Senate Majority Leader’s office on Thursday evening.


    The proposal will be made via a 3:00 p.m. presidential announcement from the White House.

    The New York Times reported that the Democratic proposal would not add any money for the border fence, despite Trump’s repeated push for $5.7 billion or his compromise offer of $2.5 billion. Trump’s request for $5.7 billion in 2019 would buy an extra 234 miles of border fence on the 2,000-mile border.

    WASHINGTON — House Democrats have added more than $1 billion in border-related spending to a package of funding bills that would reopen most of the government …

    About half the money, $524 million, would be for additional infrastructure at ports of entry on the border, one Democrat said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the plans have not been formally announced, while $563 million more would be inserted to fund 75 immigration judges, who adjudicate the claims of migrants who make asylum claims at the border.



    Trump posted two Tweets on Friday night, including a hinted description of the proposed compromise:


    Trump said:

    Everything we are asking for, whether it is the wall or barrier, whether it is the technology, whether it is the drug-detecting equipment, this is what law enforcement wants, this is what they need. Wait until you see the results. They’ll be proud of it and we’ll be even prouder.



    On January 9, Kushner and Pence met with a group of business-first GOP Senators, led by Sen. Lindsey Graham. The GOP Senators urged the White House to swap an amnesty for perhaps three million “DACA” illegals in exchange for a few billion dollars for the border wall.


    Media reports on the proposal did not say the Senators backed Trump’s call for vital reforms to block the migration of poor Central Americans into the United States via the multiple catch-and-release rules in border law.



    Since January 9, Graham has repeatedly urged Trump to give up his wage-boosting “Hire American” policy to get wall funding.

    The January 10 reports did say the Senators also want to include an expansion of the H-2B visa program which allows U.S. landscapers, restaurants, fish processors,and forestry companies to import cheap workers and so reduce wages for their American employees.



    In the zig-zag talks, Trump has already given several concessions to the Democrats, who have not offered anything in exchange.

    The New York Times‘ report about an extra $1.1 billion in border security spending is a minor concession. The public — and nearly all legislators — strongly support the deployment of drug-detection technology.

    Democrats hate Trump’s border wall because they see it as a symbolic public rejection of their plans to impose greater diversity on Americans. The wall is “an immorality,” according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. It “is not who we are as a nation,” she said January 3.


    Via Twitter, pro-migrant activists shared their worries about the nature of Trump’s offers, which follow several prior concessions by Trump, including a decision to build a fence of steel slats instead of the proposed concrete wall, which is loathed by pro-migration Democrats.


    Pro-American activists posted their worries:

    Lol this appears to be as dumb as it looks. This is almost certainly going to be s grand bargain in which Trump offers softer beds for separated child detainees in exchange for a wall. Mitch, Pence and Jared. Lol

    Exactly. In fact, I think he'll name check a few issues "to put on the table" -- but make no commitments, let's negotiate. All aimed at moving the public opinion needle on "who do you blame?" (it won't). So obvious and so boneheaded. And so cruel.

    Why do I worry that, under Jared's influence, @realDonaldTrump will cripple his presidency tomorrow with some kind of offer of DREAMer amnesty without nearly enough in return? It only gets worse from there, as Dems demand more, no? Hope I'm just paranoid #ABP

    @abbydphillip





    Trump is expected to offer another proposal to end the shutdown tomorrow, per a senior admin official. It will include items to entice dems, who have not given counters to two previous offers. He’s not expected to announce national emergency but it’s still under consideration.







    Ann Coulter repeated her warnings on Friday against an amnesty deal:

    I share your concerns.

    With Kushner and Graham involved, the proposal is almost sure to involve an amnesty. It is already being floated around that the offer will extend protection for DACA members and reverse some of the ending TPS dates or just flat out offer some TPS members amnesty. I hope these reports are untrue.
