Trump Demands Border Wall Funding For DACA Deal

Donald Trump's new list of immigration 'principles' has listed a border wall as a priority

The Trump administration sent Congress a list of immigration reforms it wants included in any legislation seeking to protect immigrants brought into the country illegally by their parents - a list of demands that Democratic congressional leaders said would kill any prospect for bipartisan compromise.

Trump has recently announced his intent to repeal DACA, which protects "Dreamers", by March 2018, while giving Democrat lawmakers six months to pass a law that would regulate the status of the recipients, some 800,000 people who were granted protection from deportation by President Barack Obama's executive action in 2012.

Sources familiar with the administration's thinking say Trump's new immigration wish list reflects the influence of top White House policy adviser Stephen Miller, Miller known for his nationalist views and hardline immigration approach.

Mayor Emanuel said President Trump's newly adopted hard line on protecting so-called "Dreamers" is not changing his position on Immigration Reforms.

Steve Barlock, a gubernatorial candidate and former Denver Trump Campaign Co-Chair, said however that Trump supporters need border security if they are going to support DACA recipients citizenship. Democrats and some Republicans are not expected to support measures that include massive interior enforcement and cuts to legal immigration. Chuck Schumer of NY, and the House Minority Leader, Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, released a joint statement deeming Trump's terms unacceptable. As of early September, there were nearly 690,000 active DACA recipients in the country.

Schumer and Pelosi issued a joint statement Sunday night accusing Trump of reneging on the deal.

The documents call for tighter standards for those seeking USA asylum, denial of federal grants to "sanctuary cities" that serve as refuges for illegal immigrants, and a requirement that employers use an electronic verification system known as "E-Verify" to keep illegal immigrants from securing jobs. If he intends to stick to his list and demands that all of the items mentioned are fulfilled, a consensus will never be reached.

Tweeting on Tuesday, Trump said, "The problem with agreeing to a policy on immigration is that the Democrats don't want secure borders, they don't care about safety for U.S.A". Jeff Flake, who introduced a bill this past Thursday when he told Fox News he will provide a solution for the dreamers affected by the program while providing border security and funding for President Donald Trump's call for a wall at the Mexican border.

Democratic Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico, chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, accused the White House of acting immorally and said the principles will jeopardize the legislative process.
