    US shutdown: George W Bush gives pizza to security team

    Former president George W Bush has turned his hand to pizza delivery to help staff left unpaid by a government shutdown.

    Posts on social media showed Mr Bush bringing the food to his Secret Service detail.

    "It's time for leaders on both sides to put politics aside, come together, and end this shutdown," Mr Bush wrote on Instagram.

    The shutdown has entered a fifth week and is the longest in US history.

    About 800,000 US federal staff are at home or working without pay during the political deadlock over funding for Mr Trump's proposed border wall.

    This includes about 6,000 Secret Service staff, around 85% of whom are reportedly still working through the shutdown.

    Seems like it was just restatement of his old position.




    Then how's that a bargaining chip for negotiation with Dems since they know he already agrees to it.

    This isn't about the border- it is about power. The Democratic House vs the President. Neither wants to be seen as the weaker party. Trump was unable to get anything passed when his party controlled the House. His position is not improved.

    He gets to look "reasonable" while exposing that they are unreasonable and he doesn't even have to really give them anything.

    Supreme Court inaction suggests DACA safe for another year


    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Obama-era program that shields young immigrants from deportation and that President Donald Trump has sought to end seems likely to survive for at least another year.

    That's because the Supreme Court took no action Friday on the Trump administration's request to decide by early summer whether Trump's bid to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was legal. The program has been protected by several federal courts.

    Based on the high court's usual practices, the earliest the justices would hear arguments in the case would be this fall, if they decide to hear the case at all. If arguments take place in October, a decision would not be likely before 2020, when it could affect the presidential campaign.

    The administration "never asked for a stay of the rulings below which to us indicated it has known all along that there's no real rush to resolve these important issues," said Theodore Boutrous Jr., a lawyer in Los Angeles who represents some young immigrants who challenged the administration's plans.

    Trump and Congress could take the issue out of the court's hands altogether if they strike a deal on the program known as DACA, perhaps even in negotiations to end the partial government shutdown.

    The immigration case is among several high-profile issues the court has apparently decided not to add to its calendar for decision by late June. Other pending appeals involve Indiana abortion restrictions, whether the main federal employment discrimination law protects LGBT people and Trump's policy to limit military service by transgender people. The court also has yet to act on a separate administration request to let the transgender policy take effect, even before the case is decided.

    On immigration, the administration sought to end DACA in 2017, but federal courts in California, New York and Washington, DC, have prevented it from doing so. A federal judge in Texas has declared the program is illegal, but refused to order it halted.

    DACA has protected about 700,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children or came with families that overstayed visas.
    The administration has twice tried to sidestep the appeals courts and win a swift ruling by the Supreme Court. The justices rejected a first attempt last year as premature. In taking no action so far on the second request, the high court is signaling that it considers the issue less urgent than the administration does.

    And?

    He offered them a bag of air that they have already said they won't accept but he gets to look "reasonable" and they look unreasonable.

    He is winning.

    SCOTUS may also decide to take the case after RBG is admitted to be dead and has been replaced.

    Speaking from the White House, Mr Trump offered two compromises to break what he called the "logjam" over the shutdown.

    The first concerns about 700,000 Dreamers, who entered the United States with their parents illegally.

    The Dreamers are currently protected from deportation under a programme that allows them to work but not get citizenship. Mr Trump has been trying to rescind the programme.

    Mr Trump said he would extend protection for Dreamers for another three years, allowing them access to work permits.

    He also said he would extend for three years the visas for Temporary Protection Status holders. More than 300,000 people from countries affected by war or disasters are allowed to live and work in the US under TPS, another system Mr Trump has opposed.

    Jeb would have already given them everything in return for nothing, Trump has not given them anything, he has only offered them something he knew they would refuse.

    Amnesty will not happen and the Demoncrats now own the shutdown and the eventual deportation of the DACA and TPS recipients.

    Best offer the Dems are ever going to get, look how mad the right are over this offer, this is Trump making an offer that swings left AFTER he punked Nancy and her gang just days earlier, to make sure they would reject it. Now he declares an emergency saying he has no choice.

    Nancy and her team got played by a master troller, she is out of her league, a level 1 noob.

    Dems own this now, but Anne C. needs to shut up and let this play out, if he gives in...then have at it...until then she isn't helping anymore.

    So you're saying its an even better deal for the democrats, 25B vs 5.7B. And an extension is a concession, so the SC doesn't hear the appeal this year? It will next year and overturn DACA. They should take the deal to guarantee it survives then bank on winning in 2020, that is if they truly cared about the dreamers, but they don't. Its a better deal for democrats but they've already said no. Democrats are total losers if they don't take this deal.
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.

    I agree except that Coulter and everyone else should make it clear that this deal is unacceptable in case the Demoncrats were to try and call Trump's bluff, he needs the excuse to back out of the offer and the Republicans need to be motivated to make sure it never reaches his desk.
