House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Saturday she will not take up President Trump’s offer to trade off $5.7 billion in wall funding for a three-year extension of a program providing legal status for “Dreamers.”

Pelosi, D-Calif., issued a statement just before Trump’s announcement, calling the plan “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 article goes on to state the following:

Pelosi said the proposal does not achieve what Democrats have long sought for the “Dreamers,” which is a pathway to citizenship or permanent legal status.

After President Trump’s speech from the White House, Pelosi posted the following statement on Twitter:

What is original in the President’s proposal is not good. What is good in the proposal is not original. Democrats will vote next week to add additional border security funding for ports of entry, advanced technology for scanning vehicles for drugs & immigration judges.

What we didn’t hear from the President was any sympathy for the federal workers who face so much uncertainty because of the chaos of the #TrumpShutdown.

Below is the statement she released prior to President Trump’s address:

Democrats were hopeful that @realDonaldTrump was finally willing to re-open government & proceed with a much-needed discussion to protect the border. Unfortunately, reports make clear that his proposal is a compilation of previously rejected initiatives.

Below is the full text of Pelosi’s statement which was posted on her website:

San Francisco — Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement in advance of the President’s address:

“Democrats were hopeful that the President was finally willing to re-open government and proceed with a much-needed discussion to protect the border.

“Unfortunately, initial reports make clear that his proposal is 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.  It is unlikely that any one of these provisions alone would pass the House, and taken together, they are a non-starter.  For one thing, this proposal does not include the permanent solution for the Dreamers and TPS recipients that our country needs and supports.

“Democrats support smart, effective border security solutions:

  • Increased infrastructure investments at our ports of entry including additional ports and roads;
  • Advanced technology to scan for drugs, weapons and contraband where the vast majority of drugs come in to our country and advanced technology to detect unauthorized crossings;
  • More customs personnel including filling the more than 3,000 customs and border patrol vacancies; and
  • More immigration judges.

“Next week, Democrats will pass a package of six bills agreed to by House and Senate negotiators and other legislation to re-open government so that we can fully negotiate on border security proposals.

“The President must sign these bills to re-open government immediately and stop holding the American people hostage with this senseless shutdown.  Each day he prolongs this needless crisis, Coast Guardsmen, FBI agents, border patrol officers, TSA agents, and hundreds of thousands more workers are forced to live without knowing how they can feed their families or pay their bills.

“The President has taken pride in shutting down government. Now, he must take action to open up government.”

      Nothing will stop Nancy’s rants. They have nothing to do with hatred. She has taken over Hillary’s role (and pay) to smear the President before the 2020 election.

    Pelosi wants everything for her side and nothing for her opponent which is not compromise.

    Pelosi and a big part of the Dem party are so consumed by hatred of Trump and the thought he might get a second term, they have blown perhaps their biggest chance to reclaim the WH. TDS is working in our favor.
    If they had of accepted this offer, it would have been game over for Trump. He would have lost near half his base, most of the middle right Dems and independents. If that wasn’t enough, in the next two years the Dems could have leveraged money for the fence, for a total DACA citizenship. DACA folks would then vote.

    You can rant all you want here, but it doesn’t count. Get on whatever media you want and tell the Democrats they need to get on board to protect the border and the legal people in the U.S. Bombard the Democrats the same way they use social media to shut down conservatives and Republicans.
