Trump says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will bring the proposal for a vote in the Senate this week.

Democrats were proposing $563 million to hire 75 more immigration judges, who now face large backlogs processing cases, and $524 million to improve ports of entry in Calexico, California, and San Luis, Arizona, the Democratic House aide said.

Trump's reference to amnesty in the tweet could create confusion and is unlikely to help the president get his plan through Congress. "She's under total control of the radical left".

Trump's proposal calls for $5.7 billion for border wall funding, $800 million in "urgent humanitarian assistance" and $805 million for drug detection technology and port security.

President Donald Trump says there'll be no amnesty for Dreamers as the Democrats refuse to budge. Likewise there will be no big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally-but be careful Nancy!

"Any compromise with President Trump is going to look like a surrender".

"This kind of amnesty deal will incentivize more caravans", Roy Beck, president of the anti-immigration organization NumbersUSA, said in a statement, according to Politico, using a scare tactic devised by President Trump - referring to groups of immigrants as a "caravan" in order to dehumanize them and cast them as a source for fear.

The deal was, however, dismissed by the Democrats as a "non-starter".

"Trump proposes amnesty", tweeted conservative firebrand Ann Coulter. More than 300,000 people from countries affected by war or disasters are allowed to live and work in the United States under TPS, another system Mr Trump has opposed.

Man charged with 'plot to attack White House'
Taheb had planned to exchange his vehicle for weapons and ammunition on Wednesday and carry out the attack as early as Thursday. But Pak said no targets in Washington or Georgia were ever truly threatened by the plot.

The president also proposed a slew of measures to increase border security, including an increase in law enforcement, saying he was offering a "commonsense compromise both parties (Republicans and Democrats) should embrace". But Trump, who has yet to acknowledge that offer, laid out his own plan, which officials said had been in the works for days.

Trump, who made his offer on Saturday during a 13-minute televised speech from the White House, floated extending protections for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme recipients for three years and a three-year extension of protections for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, reports The Hill magazine.

Democrats are disparaging a proposal that's expected to be coming from President Donald Trump that the White House has said is aimed at ending the 29-day partial government shutdown.

Democrats have dismisssed as a "non-starter" President Donald Trump's offer to extend temporary protections for young people brought to the USA illegally. Earlier Friday, Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-Calif., who leads the House Appropriations Committee's homeland security subcommittee, said in an interview that some Democrats were asking leaders, "What is our plan?"

Administration officials said the protections would apply only to the approximately 700,000 people now enrolled in the Obama-era program shielding them from deportation, and not all those who could be eligible.

The already-strained relationship took a turn for the worse on Wednesday when Pelosi suggested that Trump delay his State of the Union Message until the shutdown ends.

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is given to nationals from designated countries affected by armed conflict or natural disaster.

"It brings the federal community together and a lot of us are still working without pay", Department of Justice worker Dawn Win said.

"If the president can arbitrarily shut down the government now, he will do it time and again", Warner said.
