Fact-checking Trump’s border speech and DACA offer


Washington( CNN) President Donald Trump laid out a broad-spectrum immigration deal in an address from the Diplomatic Reception Room on Saturday that would money his signature border wall in exchange for temporary protections for more than one million immigrants.

The proposal is similar to one Trump handed over to Congress earlier this month. It includes funds for humanitarian assistance, technology, perimeter agents, law enforcement agencies personnels, and immigration magistrates. Trump laid out additional concessions Saturday that include providing three years of deportation aid to about 700,000 undocumented immigrants who were brought to the US as children and 300,000 immigrants with temporary protected status.

The address comes amid a record-long government shutdown. Trump’s $5.7 billion budget request for his border wall is at the centre for human rights of the fight. The latest proposal is an attempt to bring Democrat to the table, but it’s unclear the new concessions will win them over. Shortly before the President’s address, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi liberated a statement repudiating the proposal.
