Trump plans to make Dems an offer to end shutdown
Addressing the federal workers who are going without pay while Trump holds them hostage in order to get funding for his wall, Waters added, "We are going to do everything we can to support you and get this government open and this president must be impeached".
She said the proposals were "a non-starter" and "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".
The proposal would also extend temporary protections for some young people brought to the US illegally as children and immigrants who fled disaster zones. A Senate victory for Trump, however, could force new negotiations over his border wall plan and over reopening the government, where 800,000 federal workers, furloughed or forced to work without being paid, are set to miss their second paycheck next Friday.
Below, President Trump's full announcement on the government shutdown and the southern border. "He kind of is playing the role of wingman right now [but] I think Chuck is a pro and I think he understands roles ebb and flow".
Trump outlined a plan to end the government shutdown on Saturday, offering congressional Democrats three years of legislative relief for 700,000 DACA recipients - including protection from deportation - and an extension of legal residence for people living in the country under "Temporary Protective Status" designations.
US President Donald Trump makes an announcement on the budget, the government shutdown, immigration and the border. The offer would also give a three-year extension to 300,000 people from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan who are living in the US under the temporary protected status program.
The Dreamers are now protected from deportation under a programme that allows them to work but not get citizenship. He pointed to her theatrics around the State of the Union address and asserted that he would deliver the address regardless of her calls for it to be delayed - even if that means he delivers a written letter.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer also dug in during an appearance in NY, where he predicted Democrats would block the president's proposal from passing the Senate. On this occasion, he sought to strike a diplomatic tone, emphasizing trust and the need to work across the aisle.
The Dreamers, which refers to undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, are protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
In an interview on "Fox News Sunday", Vice President Mike Pence reiterated that Trump's proposal "is not amnesty" because "there's no pathway to citizenship".
Senate Republican leadership fail to get enough votes to pass House bill. Another $805 million would be used for "technology, canines, and personnel to help stop the flow of illegal drugs, weapons and other contraband", Trump says, while another $782 million would hire an additional 2,750 border agents, law enforcement officers, and staff.
But all of this is on the condition that he receives $5.7 billion for a border wall - the central point of contention between Democrats and Republicans in the fight to re-open the government.
Trump voters may not be happy with Sunday's suggestion that amnesty is technically on the table, given the hard line on immigration Trump took during his 2016 Presidential campaign.
Donald Trump struck a deal to reopen the government and build his much-promised wall - with one small problem.
The recent surge coming in the midst of the partial shutdown indicates that Trump's Latino base strongly support the construction of a border wall.
Saturday's speech was largely addressed to his political rivals in the Democratic Party, who took control of the House of Representatives in the November midterm elections and challenged his tough stance on immigration.
Trump had considered a larger immigration deal in the past.
But Clyburn again insisted Trump reopen the government first, and Trump gave no sign he would agree to do so, even for a few weeks, to give negotiators a chance to cut a deal.
