In an announcement aimed at shifting pressure to Democrats to end the partial government shutdown, President Donald Trump offers to extend deportation protections for immigrants in the United States illegally in exchange for $5.7 billion for a border barrier, at the White House in Washington, Jan. 19, 2019. A day later, Trump took to Twitter to attack House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for turning down his offer, even as Vice President Mike Pence appeared to open the door to negotiations over the plan.
