President Donald Trump presented a detailed plan to the public on Saturday in an attempt to end the government shut down and strengthen border security.

“Both sides in Washington must simply come together, listen to each other, put down their armor, build trust, reach across the aisle, and find solutions,” the president said as he laid out a compromise incorporating many elements important to Democrats, such as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS). He also noted that the measures he is proposing will still allow temporary farm workers into the country.

“Our farmers and vineyards won’t be affected because lawful and regulated entry into our country will be easy and consistent,” said Trump.
