Battle Looms Over 'Amnesty' For Dreamers

The Ruse of Tax Reform

President Trump said on Thursday morning that he supports legislation that would protect young undocumented immigrants from deportation and would deliver a "massive" increase in border security - but not with a wall on the southern border.

Now, as confusion reigns over Trump's true intentions for dealing with 800,000 people affected by a now-canceled Obama-era order that allowed them to live and work in the United States, one senior Republican lawmaker wants the White House to come clean.

Supporting one group doesn't mean un-supporting another group, it's possible for Canadians to care about their own people and those from America at the same time.

Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the House and Senate Democratic leaders, said that negotiations did not include Trump's call for a wall on the US-Mexico border.

He also went on Twitter to insist there was no deal, but actually made the case for DACA.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is denying assertions by the two top congressional Democrats that they have an agreement with him that will preserve protections for young immigrants in the USA illegally while adding border security without the wall he has coveted.

King tweeted that Trump would blow up his base of conservative support and have no credibility, if the president takes what King considers a soft stance on immigration.

Democratic minority leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen.

Trump said that in exchange for his consent, Democrats would have to agree to "massive border security", and any agreement "would be subject to vote". "The wall is going to be built" but "it'll be funded a little bit later", he said, although asked if he favored amnesty, Trump said, "DACA".

US President Donald Trump slammed over response to London tube attack
May said it's not helpful when anyone speculates during an ongoing investigation. . "Must be proactive!" the US President tweeted. The bombing, which is being investigated as a terrorist incident, cast a pall over the first day of London Fashion Week.

"Dreamers" are those undocumented immigrants who were introduced to the United States by their parents when they were under the age of 18.

Schumer and Pelosi said in a statement that the details on border security needed to be negotiated, that both sides agreed "the wall would not be any part of this agreement" and that Trump said he would pursue the wall later.

"We just don't say, 'You came here illegally, I'm compassionate, here's your citizenship, '" he said.

DACA is an executive order signed by former president Barack Obama in 2012 that gave legal status to children who arrived illegally to the USA with their parents.

"Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?" the president tweeted on Wednesday. The differing interpretations of their meeting left many House Democrats wondering whether their leadership could trust the president in negotiations.

They also think he is unreliable.

If approved, the measure will dedicate $10 million towards tuitions assistance for DACA recipients who are already enrolled in California institutions of higher learning.

"This action has caused significant fear, uncertainty and impacts among approximately 800,000 Americans who were brought to this country as children and have known no other country than the USA", officials said in a statement early Thursday.
