Trump's shutdown solution hangs in limbo

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

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump's proposal to break through the budget deadlock appeared to be gaining little traction Monday, as another missed paycheck loomed for hundreds of thousands of workers and the partial federal shutdown stretched into its fifth week.

Despite the fanfare of the president's announcement, voting in Congress was not expected to unfold until later in the week. Even then it seemed doubtful that legislation based on Trump's plan had any chance of swiftly passing the Senate. Republicans hold a 53-47 majority but would need Democrats to reach the usual 60-vote threshold for bills to advance.
