DACA Negotiations With Trump Getting Caught Up in Politics

DACA Negotiations With Trump Getting Caught Up in Politics

Meeting with Republicans and Democrats at the White House today, Trump said he wants funding for a massive border wall and an end to chain migration and visa lotteries.

U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday he envisages a bill to tackle the status of young undocumented immigrants would be separate from spending legislation and would include additional items. Trump announced plans to repeal DACA a year ago and challenged Congress to craft a legislative reform package. Trump says he wants any immigration deal to include funding for a border wall with Mexico and a tightening of immigration restrictions.

Sanders did not elaborate when asked what border security might look like, nor whether it would entail a physical wall.

According to reports, Donald Trump is set to meet with developers to begin looking at different prototype concepts for his border wall following his upcoming State of the Union address.

Donald Trump, I can not stress enough how stupid this man is, and not just because of the decisions that he makes and the things that he says, but because of his gross underestimation of the intelligence of the American people.

President Donald J. Trump just concluded a successful bipartisan and bicameral meeting on immigration reform. Democrats and some moderate Republicans are eying a January 19 deadline for a must-pass government spending deal as leverage to get a deal done on DACA. "So I think the Democrats have more to lose politically if they draw too hard of a line". "I think I can speak for everybody, we want-(Republican Sen.) John Cornyn from Texas-we all want DACA to happen, but we also want great security for our country".

Republicans were adamant that Trump's call "means the wall", but that Trump acknowledges that it does not need to cover the entire length of the border, because of geographic barriers. "I can tell you the American public very much wants that".

Congressional leaders met with Trump at the White House last Thursday, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the president's call for a wall to be part of the deal may have poisoned the well.

"We need a wall", Trump said, during the long exchange with lawmakers. "And we are going to build the wall", the president said Monday at an event in Knoxville, Tennessee. "So that's where the negotiations are taking place". During the closed-door portion of the meeting, they reached an agreement to negotiate legislation that accomplishes critically needed reforms in four high-priority areas: border security, chain migration, the visa lottery, and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy.

That would be in addition to Trump winning funding for his promised southern border wall and added border security. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., one of the attendees.
