Trump shutdown announcement: President offers Daca extensions for undocumented migrants in exchange for border wall funding

Trump shutdown announcement: President offers Daca extensions for undocumented migrants in exchange for border wall fundingDonald Trump has proposed a compromise to reopen the federal government which would provide extensions to protections for certain undocumented immigrants in exchange for $ 5.7bn (£4.4bn) to fund a wall along the US-Mexico border. Under the president’s plan, migrants who arrived to the country at a young age and qualified for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme (Daca), as well as other immigrants under Temporary Protected Status (TPS), would receive extensions to their protections from deportation. “If we are successful in this effort, we will have the best chance … At real, bipartisan immigration reform,” the president said, before outlining the proposal he says received input from border security professionals.
