U.S. House Speaker Pelosi rejects Trump plan to reopen government

WASHINGTON, Jan 19 (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Saturday said an upcoming proposal by President Donald Trump to provide temporary protections for some undocumented immigrants in return for building a wall on the southwestern border with Mexico was “unacceptable.”

Trump’s plan also does not “represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives” and is unlikely to pass either the House or Senate, Pelosi, a Democrat, said in a statement. Trump’s plan is part of an attempt to win a deal with Congress that would reopen several partially shuttered federal agencies.
