Tensions flared when Pelosi suggested Trump postpone the annual State of the Union address, a grand Washington tradition - and a platform for his border wall fight with Democrats - that was tentatively scheduled for January 29. Another concern is Trump repeats the mistake of one of his heroes, then-President Ronald Reagan who passed an amnesty proposal, but didn't follow through on enforcement.
Saturday, Pence was asked why immigrants should trust President Trump, who once accused Haitians of bringing AIDS to the United States and who said immigrants from places like Haiti and Nigeria came from "s-hole countries". Some said Pence and Mulvaney and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were involved, too.
The White House, though, hasn't gotten assurances that Democrats will be open to this. But Mr. Trump went on to threaten, "And if we don't, I may go that route". President Trump could remind Republicans that rule of law and compassion are principles they profess to believe and that now is the time to prove it. "We voted for Trump and got Jeb!"
"President Trump's request for $5.7 billion in border security funding is reasonable and certainly deserved a counter proposal, at the very least". "100 miles of border wall in exchange for amnestying millions of illegals".
Trump promoted his plan Saturday as a way to "break the logjam and provide Congress with a path forward to end the government shutdown".
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, a longtime anti-immigration voice in the House, blasted Trump's offer, and the conservative news website Breitbart noted that most of the border would remain without a wall under the plan.
The planned vote also reflects a shift by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell.
The Democrats are opposing Americans, those who wish to be Americans, and those that find themselves stuck somewhere in between.
But if the proposal is real, he said Democrats must take it seriously.
Trump argues a wall is necessary for national security.

Speaking at the rally, Kharge said, "I appeal that we all unite to save the Constitution & the democracy". The rally is expected to be held on Saturday to show the opposition unity.
Blaming previous administrations and congressional lawmakers for the immigration mess America faces today, Trump said as a candidate for president he promised to fix this crisis and he intends on keeping that promise "one way or the other". He called it "a good-faith compromise". But it's drawn nothing but negative reviews from Democrats so far.
"The devil is in the details here, but one thing I can guarantee is that if $5 billion is appropriated for border wall, a satellite map of the border on January 1, 2019 will look virtually identical to a satellite map of the border on November 2020", Fresco said. Ahead of the President's speech, Democratic senator, Richard Durbin of IL, says Trump's proposal is unacceptable.
However, long before the president spoke, Democrats in the House and Senate released a flurry of statements insisting the president should vote to reopen the government without border wall funding and continue to negotiate once workers are paid.
Democrats criticized Trump's proposal because it didn't seem to be a permanent solution for those immigrants and because it includes money for the wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, which the party strongly opposes.
Their disagreement has led to a budget impasse and a record-breaking partial government shutdown, which enters its 29th day Saturday, affecting nine cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies, as its impact is rippling across country.
The proposal would protect immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.
"It is a 3 year extension of DACA", Trump said, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Have the Democrats, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, privately told him they would agree to fund the $5.7 billion wall, and that they have graciously allowed the president the glory of breaking the news to anxious Americans?
It was the latest turn - and potentially the most risky - in the high-stakes brinkmanship between Trump and Pelosi that has been playing out against the stalled negotiations over how to end the partial government shutdown.
