Trump open to Dreamers relief legislation without wall funding: aide

Posted September 17, 2017

"The president is in Florida this morning contradicting what he said as he left the White House earlier in the morning".

At a White House dinner to discuss DACA on Wednesday evening, Nancy Pelosi reportedly found herself in a position that might be familiar to working women: She was being interrupted by the men around her.

Speaking in Florida on Thursday morning, Trump said he was not looking at citizenship or amnesty.

Schumer and Pelosi then issued a follow-up statement which contended that an agreement was reached only to cooperate on DACA and border security. In a statement posted Wednesday, Dan Stein, the president of the conservative Federation for American Immigration Reform, said any legislation needs to include ramped up immigration enforcement (such as mandatory use of the electronic employment verification system known as E-Verify), more interior enforcement and construction of a border wall.

As I said earlier, looks like I picked the wrong week to...

Building a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border defined Mr. Trump's campaign. "Really! They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age".

An additional estimated 17,000 individuals from India and 6,000 Pakistan respectively are eligible for DACA, placing India in the top ten countries for DACA eligibility, it said.

Advocates for immigrants said that since Trump has shifted responsibility to Congress, passing the Dream Act has become indispensable.

In recent tweets, Trump appeared to agree with the reasoning behind DACA, describing the Dreamers as "good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military".

After the Associated Press broke the news of the deal last night, Republican Representative Steve King blasted the President on Twitter. He had announced last week that his administration was rescinding the program and gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix.

Since the very first day, politicians have been divided on immigration issues related to this American immigration policy, but under the presidency of Donald Trump, DACA has been under scrutiny.

"There's a lot of students who are younger than us, and if this goes away, they won't be able to go to college", Ortiz said. People want to see that happen", Trump said, adding: "The wall will come later. This rest of the candidates were complete idiots, so of course, you had to 100 percent support Trump.

"We have to make a whole new set of standards".

"Well, many Republicans really like it", the President said about DACA.

"The Democrats have a clear and unified mass immigration agenda", he said.

"That's an important position because we can not make a 2,200 mile (3,540 km) wall a condition for passing the Dream Act and we've been very clear from the start", said Senator Dick Durbin, a senior Democrat who has been working for the past 16 years to legislate protections for the Dreamers.

He said "there was no deal" and denied that Democrats claimed otherwise. We were told to vote and to encourage others to vote, but we kept taking Trump and his supporters as a joke.
