>> What the president articulated yesterday was a good faith common sense compromise or the president laid out his priorities.>> I think the vice president and president know that what the president announced yesterday was not gonna go anywhere. It wasn't really intended to. It was a I think an effort to prop up the president's sagging poll numbers.
>> Building a physical barrier on the Southern border, a steel barrier, new resources for border patrol, humanitarian assistant technology. But the president also announced that he'd been willing to support legislation that provides temporarily relief. Three years of temporary legal status for those in the DACA program and also those who have temporary protective status.
>> But it did nothing to get us closer to ending the shutdown. The president announced the shutdown, said he'd be proud of it, he is proud of it. He needs to put an end to it.>> Really is an effort to, to compromise.>> That's what he should have done.
It's what a real president would do.>> It represents progress, not perfection but progress. Ms. Pelosi's response was predictable, but I can promise you that the more centrist Democrats right now are glad the president put something on the table.>> So I don't think you should even consider this because it's three years, it's just DACA.
Why not all the dreamers? Why not a permanent pathway to citizenship so they actually can have certainty about their lives? What it really shows is his lack of compassion and empathy for people that are suffering.>> I talked to the President about this issue for about an hour last week, and if you bring a plan to him that doesn't include a wall, it's dead as 4 o'clock.
>> And I think it's a non-starter.
