Wall 'Must' Be Part of Any DACA Deal

Wall 'Must' Be Part of Any DACA Deal”

But since the Dems are going to the wall to get DACA approved, Trump upped the stakes when he demanded other immigration enforcement measures be included along with DACA legislation, including funding for the president's border wall - a provision that enrages the Dems base as much as not getting DACA illegals legalized.

Congress must pass spending legislation by January 19 to prevent a federal shutdown.

In a victory for Dreamers nationwide, a San Francisco judge on Tuesday blocked the Trump administration's rescinding of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, ordering the administration to resume accepting DACA applications as the underlying case continues in federal court.

Those who seek permanent status would have to follow existing pathways, such as marrying a US citizen or having a company sponsor an immigrant visa.

Trump declared, counter to everything he campaigned on, that "we don't need a 2,000-mile wall,"and perhaps even fencing would do in some parts, though he later tweeted that a wall must be part of any deal".

President Donald Trump's 55-minute televised meeting on immigration with bipartisan lawmakers on Tuesday gave the public a raw look into the president's negotiating tactics and understanding of public policy.

The comments from the New York Democrat come a day after Trump and top lawmakers used a White House meeting to agree to pursue a deal on those immigrants.

Reps. Will Hurd (R-Texas) and Peter Aguilar (D-Calif.) unveiled a bipartisan compromise on DACA, Trump's border wall and other laws around immigration ahead of the meeting. "Brought to this country as children by undocumented parents or family members, they are not "illegal" through any fault of their own", Archbishop Gomez wrote.

For Dreamers, the bill would grant them a new legal status with three-year work permits and the right to travel outside the USA - a congressionally approved enhanced version of the current DACA program - but no special pathway to citizenship.

"And during their lifetime, leaders in Washington have not been able to reach an agreement to fix the broken immigration system that allowed them to enter in the first place".

Kelly often discussed being open to meeting with Democrats as much as Republicans, and spoke of sympathy toward the DACA population.

Trump was quick to vent his frustrations on Twitter. Diane Feinstein's call for a clean DACA bill, which would push off dealing with issues like border security until later. "Any solution has to include the wall, because without the wall, it all doesn't work".

A group of Democrats are arguing to hold firm on DACA because if things collapse, they would hopefully win the House and have more leverage in 2019. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, a 2013 immigration reform veteran.
