WASHINGTON (Gray-DC) -- Members of Congress respond to President Donald Trump’s proposal regarding the ongoing battle between funding for a border wall and the government shutdown.

When President Trump addressed the nation from the White House Saturday, he laid out a plan that would insure the 1.8 million DACA residents in the United States and the immigrants with temporary status would be protected for another three years while Congress worked to pass permeant legislation.

The president also proposed $800 million to combat drugs being brought into this country using sophisticated technology and more law enforcement at the border along with another $800 million for humanitarian needs.

The president made it clear that the only way this proposal would work was if Congress gave him his $5 billion to build a structure at the border.

Democratic leaders shot down President Trump’s plan minutes after the address. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused the proposal even before President Trump made the speech.

The Gray Television Washington News Bureau team is meeting up with lawmakers to get their reaction to President Trump’s plan. You can watch their reactions in the video box above.
