President Donald Trump will be making a widely anticipated announcement on the government shutdown and border crisis from the White House today. The speech will likely outline a proposal to end the partial government shutdown.
The president is anticipated to outline a proposal for $5.7 billion for physical border security in exchange for “The Bridge Act” which would extend protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and legislation to extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders. Anticipated start time 4:00pm EST.
