Pelosi open to potential compromise for ending shutdown

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who for the past three weeks has staunchly refused to negotiate, left open the possibility that she would support a compromise.

When asked by reporters Thursday if she would consider a deal that traded border wall funding for legal status for enrollees in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Pelosi didn’t rule it out, saying, “We have always stood ready to discuss comprehensive immigration reform and, of course, the Dreamers.”

However, she insisted that her Democrats and the Trump administration “haven’t had that discussion” yet, and remained locked in an impasse over border security funding.

Doesn’t understand how negotiations work

Both sides “are having conversations” in the background about potential solutions, Pelosi said, but she declined to provide any specifics.

Asserting that Trump’s negotiating style was hampering any progress, Pelosi, along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, has accused the president of being an impossible negotiator who continuously changed the terms of potential deals.

“The president just keeps upping the ante,” Pelosi told reporters. “They have been moving the goalpost so many times they are out of the stadium.”

What Pelosi didn’t say is that the terms keep changing because she has refused to agree to any of the offers put forward thus far.

Dreamers for a border wall

The latest effort to negotiate a compromise deal to end the shutdown — which would provide relief for the DREAMERS in exchange for border wall funds — was being worked on by a small group of Republican senators led by South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, along with Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME).

But the plan folded just a day later after Trump signaled that he would not support the effort, saying again that he wants to leave DACA in the hands of the court.

“If the Supreme Court rules against the President Obama decision, which he knew would not hold up, we will have a deal with the dreamers,” Trump said while visiting the border in Texas on Thursday.

Discouraged, Graham said Thursday, “I think we’re stuck.” Collins said, “It’s very difficult when we’re dealing with people who do not want to budge at all in their positions and that’s the president and Speaker Pelosi. They’re each very dug in on their position and that’s made this very difficult to resolve.”

Friday marks day 21 of the partial government shutdown — tying with the previous longest shutdown, under former President Bill Clinton.
