USA: Trump offers immigration compromise to end government shutdown

US President Donald Trump announced a 'compromise' deal to end the government shutdown over funding a security wall along the southern border with Mexico, during an address from the White House in Washington DC on Saturday. The President offered to extend legal protections against deportation of so-called 'Dreamers' — undocumented migrants who arrived in the US as minors — as well for as... Еще migrants in America under the Temporary Protection Status programme. He also promised $800 million (€704 million) in humanitarian assistance, $805 million (€708 million) for drug detection technology at ports of entry, 2750 additional border agents and 750 new judges to reduce a backlog of 900,000 immigration cases. However, Trump's earlier demand of US$5.7 billion (€5 billion) to fund the border wall remains.
