Donald Trump wield DACA deal in exchange of massive border security wall

Deseret News        Letter to the Editor

"I know the people that are strong Trump supporters that were on his bandwagon early on", King said. "These young men and women were brought to America by their parents through no fault of their own and know no other country to call home". As the fate of some 800,000 DREAMers rests in Congress' often inept hands, we should make sure they feel safe and welcome in this nation and do what we can to protect their legal status.

For much of Wednesday, there was confusion over just what the President, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi agreed to in their dinner at the White House on Wednesday evening. What wasn't in the deal was funding for a border wall.

"No. I'm gonna stick with President Trump for all the rest of his agenda and I'm gonna do everything I can to help him keep his campaign promises", the Iowa representative said. He added, "I think we're going to rock it in terms of GDP".

Gasca fears a deal made with Trump will have serious reprocussions for the rest of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country who are not DACA recipients. "We are telling people to renew immediately because it needs to be submitted on file by Oct 5, not postmarked", said Rebecca Shi, of the Illinois Business Immigration Coalition.

I had one professor out of all of my classes even address it, Jasso said. Basically, there would be certain conditions that they would have to meet in order to be able to move towards a path to citizenship.

With her future in the states on the line, Ruiz-Lira participated in a five-day hunger strike to send a message to the Trump. Some of these folks came here when they were 2 years old and didn't realize that they were undocumented until they tried to get a driver's license or apply to college, for example. "Our city residents directly suffer because they lose critical services at a time when we are already stretched thin with hundreds of vacancies at City Hall". "We're not looking at citizenship, we're not looking at amnesty".

So a tweet Wednesday morning from Trump implying that the border wall between Mexico and the USA might just be a "renovation of old and existing fences and walls" stopped those supporters in their tracks.

"No deal was made last night on DACA". The president was not invited, which I gather is unusual.
