Trump offered Obama's 800,000 dreamers green cards and a path to citizenship along with an extra 1 million illegal immigrants, and asked for border security in return. The Democrats rejected this because they are the party of open borders and reject any and all enforcement of immigration laws. That was a compromise measure.
If you think there's another explanation why they rejected Trump's offer then feel free to mention it.
