Donald Trump offers protection for 'Dreamers' in exchange for his wall in bid to end government shutdown
President Donald Trump last night offered to extend temporary deportation protections for people illegally brought to the US as children in exchange for funding for his border wall with Mexico. In a rare weekend address, Mr Trump outlined a series of proposals in the hope of ending the federal government shutdown which has left 800,000 workers furloughed or forced to work unpaid. The proposal includes legislation to allow around 700,000 immigrants who came to the US illegally as children, known as Dreamers, to keep their work permits and be protected from deportation for three years. It also extends protections for immigrants from some Latin American and African countries who currently hold temporary protected status (TPS). The president has previously shied away from offering protections for both groups - a key concern of Democrats and some moderate Republicans - fearing a backlash from the most conservative wing of his base. I will be live from the White House at 4:00 P.M.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 19, 2019 The president framed the proposal as "common sense with lots of compromise" as he sought to shift the pressure onto Democrats to reach a funding deal that can end the shutdown. However Mr Trump reiterated his demand for $5.7bn in funding for a border wall with Mexico - a key 2016 campaign pledge - something Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, has previously pledged to reject. Ahead of Mr

Trump shutdown announcement: President offers Daca extensions for undocumented migrants in exchange for border wall funding
Donald Trump has proposed a compromise to reopen the federal government which would provide extensions to protections for certain undocumented immigrants in exchange for $5.7bn (£4.4bn) to fund a wall along the US-Mexico border. Under the president's plan, migrants who arrived to the country at a young age and qualified for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme (Daca), as well as other immigrants under Temporary Protected Status (TPS), would receive extensions to their protections from deportation. "If we are successful in this effort, we will have the best chance … At real, bipartisan immigration reform," the president said, before outlining the proposal he says received input from border security professionals.

Forensic experts filled body bags with charred human remains in the field where the explosion occurred on Friday evening by the town of Tlahuelilpan in the state of Hidalgo, in one of the deadliest incidents to hit Mexico's troubled oil infrastructure in years. A number of people at the scene told Reuters that local shortages in gasoline supply since Lopez Obrador launched a drive to stamp out fuel theft had encouraged the rush to the gushing pipeline. "Everyone came to see if they could get a bit of gasoline for their car, there isn't any in the gas stations," said farmer Isaias Garcia, 50.
