Democrats offer plan to end shutdown, but no wall funds

The first bill, sources say, will include year-long funding plans for every government agency now closed, with the exception of the Department of Homeland Security.
Graham said he hoped to end the shutdown by offering Democrats incentives to get them to vote for wall funding and toldCNN before his lunch with Trump that "there will never be a deal without wall funding".
On Monday, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the Senate, which will remain under Republican control, will bring up only legislation that has the president's blessing. The package does not include the $5 billion Trump wants for the wall on the southern border.
But the strategy Democrats announced Monday would usher in a new era of divided government in Washington with a dare to Trump, aimed at forcing him and Senate Republicans to take their deal or prolong a partial government shutdown.
During his presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly insisted that Mexico would fund the wall.
"We've got to really learn how to play jujitsu with the president and figure out how to take the wall issue and show the American people that we are the modern party who will actually secure the border and also be for a compassionate immigration system that recognizes the benefits of immigration and diversity", Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), said in an interview Monday.
"They can come over right now, they could've come over anytime".
The shutdown is forcing hundreds of thousands of federal workers and contractors to stay home or work without pay.
The partial government shutdown is in its second week over Trump's demand for US$5 billion for the wall.

Democrats say the wall idea - one of the president's key election campaign platforms - is a distraction from more complicated immigration problems and a tool for Trump to whip up support among his conservative base. The outgoing Kelly said he had "nothing but compassion" for undocumented migrants crossing into the USA and undercut the idea of a border wall in an interview on Sunday that jarred with Trump's tough rhetoric on immigration.
The bill will go from the Democratic-controlled House to the Republican-held Senate and from there, it would need Trump's signature.
Trump said in a Twitter post that border security can not exist "without a strong and powerful Wall".
"But only saying "wall or no wall" is being very disingenuous and turning a complete blind eye to what is a crisis at the border".
However, University of Pittsburgh Professor of International Relations Michael Brenner told Sputnik that the Democrats were failing to take full advantage of Trump's extremism in threatening to critically damage the functioning of the United States national government.
Trump then responded on Twitter to news reports about Kelly's remarks, writing: "The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it".
