US President Donald Trump is expected to ask for the $5.7 billion he needs to build a wall on the southern border in exchange for extended protections for two groups of migrants that Democrats want covered, CNN said Saturday.
Earlier on Saturday, US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) described the upcoming Trump proposal as "unacceptable" as it does not "represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people's lives," Reuters reported.
The current partial shutdown of the US government entered its 29th day after Democrats, who blame the crisis on US President Donald Trump, shot down the president's border wall proposal in December.
Trump has repeatedly called on the Dems negotiate an end to the shutdown, which has seen some 800,000 government employees affected by a lapse in funding, which is expected to continue until Trump signs a Senate-approved spending bill.
