Border Wall Must Be Part of DACA Deal

Fortunately, Mr. Trump, on Wednesday, walked back such comments about signing most anything Congress placed on his desk relative to immigration, and reiterated his challenge to Capitol Hill, "No wall, no deal on DACA (Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals)".

The Trump administration announced Monday that nearly 200,000 Salvadorans who had been staying in the country under the Temporary Protected Status program will have to return to El Salvador this year.

Of course, the entire reason the senators asked Kelly for the White House's demands in December was that they hadn't taken the October wish list seriously.

Trump later tweeted that while his language was tough, "This was not the language used".

"I cant get over that feeling of what is going to happen are we going to get our hopes up again", Gasca said. The African Union, a group representing the continent's 55 countries, issued a blistering statement saying the Trump had dishonored USA values. Around 10:15 a.m., Trump returned Durbin's call and was told about the main elements of the deal. Many saw it as racist.

JEFF FLAKE: We've got this bipartisan group.

SCOTT DETROW, BYLINE: Morning, David. Today President Trump is saying something different. "Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, a key Trump supporter and immigration hardliner, called the bipartisan proposal "a joke", Bloomberg News reported.

"We've got this bipartisan group, we're at a deal", the senator said, according to NBC News. "We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle" that addresses the main policies Trump sought, they said.


DETROW: There was immediate broad condemnation.

"For years, these young people have been living in and enriching the United States in many ways", Bishop Vasquez said in his statement.

Fox 13 spoke with Rep, Mia Love, a Republican representing Utah's Fourth District, about the future of DACA.

"Living in the shadows is such a cliche", she said. "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation". The proposed deal that the president rejected wasn't broad enough. And that at the time was condemned from all sides. There are technical issues here, but it makes you wonder if someone will someday say it is OK to bypass activist courts. During the conversation Trump also questioned why the U.S would want to accept people from countries like Haiti and said the US should want more people from countries like Norway, the aides said. How surprising was it that President Trump reacted so negatively to this deal?

Former President Barack Obama enacted DACA to keep the undocumented immigrants, known as dreamers, from being deported.

"Hold up on that, because we need to see how USCIS will renew their procedure and if the administration is going to appeal and the likelihood is, yes", Aguayo stated. Listen to what he said on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump may be onto something.

With many issues to tackle, Goodlatte says the legislation may be just one-step toward a major immigration overhaul with supplemental measures to follow. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.
