President Trump plans to use remarks from the Diplomatic Reception Room on Saturday afternoon to propose a notable immigration compromise, according to sources familiar with the speech.
Details: The offer is expected to include Trumps $5.7 billion demand for wall money in exchange for the BRIDGE Act which would extend protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and also legislation to extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, according to a source with direct knowledge.
Jared Kushner and Mike Pence have led the crafting of this deal and the negotiations with members, according to White House officials.

Yep. This will not help Trump’s chances in 2020. I knew we couldn’t trust Kushner. Now I know we can’t trust Pence.
I hope this report is not true.
How do you figure that?
I would call it cave as well, if I thought that the democrats would accept any deal. They won’t. Our president is just systematically backing them into a corner where he can show that DACA means nothing to them, just democrat votes by illegal aliens.
Trump’s a grown ass man. He knows what he is doing.
Bait article for the never Trump crowd!
Now I know we cant trust Pence.
I have never trusted him. I can tolerate him, but . . . no, I don’t trust him. Color me paranoid, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the backup plan of the backup plan.
Oh the side of this report not being true - didn’t Trump ALREADY put forth this deal and have it knocked down? What’s the point of doing that again?
I guess we’ll know in 3+ hours.
Demographics is destiny. As the illegals continue to get regularized, states will turn Rat and the GOP will become the token opposition.
Are you saying this is a cave by Trump?
We shall see. But I think he is going to get the money, and that WE will get the WALL. (And I can’t see him getting out-smarted by Pelosi. But he would let her THINK that is happening.)
Its becoming clear the Judiciary including the SC is going to protect the DACA people. The Rats know this so Trump has no leverage there, which handicaps his negotiations.
This is now the 3rd separate “deal” I’ve seen reported in the last 30 mins. CNN has one, Breitbart another, and now this one.
Read the article. McConnell’s comments on Pelosi cancelling Trump’s SOU address are predictable RINO bed-wetting.
The Dems can’t possibly accept and Trump knows it. This is a PR event designed to shame the Democrats and display them to be the bad faith actors they are.
Pence is to Trump, as Bush was to Reagan.
1986 destroyed our country and we didn’t get a wall either. Compromise with dems and we will burn it all down.
Shouldve know after how many chuck n nancy deal?
After giving Mexico n central America 10 billion additional tax payer dollars and claiming we cant find 5 billion.
No deal until every inch of the border is secure. Anything else is amnesty.
Cave? Did anyone with 2 brain cells not know this was the bargaining chips? He is just making it public to put added pressure. Protections is not path to citizenship. I think it ought to extend instant deportation to anyone coming across the border illegally.
Yeah, well, I’m a grown woman and I definitely do not like what Trump is doing, if this is what he is doing!
The GOP doesn’t want a wall either. They won’t support him using the military or declaring a national emergency. POTUS is going to have to cave eventually because of that.
Take it for what it’s worth folks,
In the mean time, neverTrumpers,,,
