this is date over the news live from berlin u.s. president donald trump makes an offer to end a government shutdown on the table legal status for hundreds of thousands of undocumented undocumented immigrants for a board of the area but will a position democrats play ball we'll go live to washington also coming up in. poland bids farewell to the popular liberal mayor of the dumps who died monday after being stabbed at a charity event pavol adama bitch was laid to rest in the city where he was born
and where he government. plans from crushing poverty take capital of culture and italian city wants to write it as a national disgrace is in the midst of a nice songs. i'm rebecca rich's welcome to the program u.s. president donald trump has offered democrats a deal on immigration in a bid to end a partial shutdown of the u.s. government trump said he would provide temporary protections for some undocumented immigrants in return for funding for a barrier on the southern border with mexico thousands of government employees have been either furloughed or working without pay for almost five weeks in a budget dispute with the democrats over the proposed border services it was most immigrants unknown in the u.s. as dream is. migrants brought
a legally to the country as children trump offered to extend protections they receive in u.s. law on a temporary basis let's hear some of what donald trump had to say three years of legislative relief for seven hundred thousand doctor recipients brought here unlawfully by their parents at a young age many years ago this extension will give them access to work permits social security numbers and protection from deportation most importantly. well for more let's cross over to deities my weight in washington my democrat said they were going to reject this proposal even before the president spoke what was trying trying to accomplish. the politics of a government shutdown are all of bout who gets the blame because ultimately whoever ends up with the blame on their head is the person who's going to have to give up
whatever they were trying to accomplish by shutting the government down and right now in the scheme of us political football the blame is solid solidly on trump's shoulders it's even shown that there are some of his base is starting to crack and peel away over the pressure on these government workers eight hundred thousand people who as you said are currently either working without pay or not working at all so this was his attempt to put the ball back in the democrats' court so to speak he was offering them really something that should have looked very attractive to a lot of democrats specifically as we were talking about and t.p.s. something that i'm sure a lot of his advisers said this is something the democrats can't say no to because it's something that so many democratic lawmakers can behave campaigned on those protections for people who may have come to the country illegally and so this was him saying look i'm willing to come to the table i'm willing to deal i'm willing to give you something that you really want something that your base really wants in
return you have to give me that something that i and my base really want and the day of democrats are simply rejecting this out of hand perhaps thinking that they have enough political clout to withstand something like this so an attempt going well but hasn't what options are left on the table now. that is an extremely good question we're now in the the twenty ninth day this time zone of people living without a paycheck and it really looks like both sides are making overtures to look like they're opening up to have inside the really just digging in further to entrench their political positions it is still very politically expedient for the democrats to say no we're going to reject this because this wall the idea of this border wall with mexico that's changed so many times it's something that democrats can so easily run against and it's still very easy for them to say nope we reject this and democratic voters will love them for it so no sign of it letting up. in washington
