Trump Tweets "DACA Is Dead"

Trump Tweets

The Daca -Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals- is a scheme providing protected status to those who entered the U.S. illegally as children. The White House did not respond to requests for comment on Trump's tweets.

The president ended the DACA program previous year and gave Congress six months to pass a new law to replace it.

Trump had said he was open to a deal with congressional Democrats to receive funds for the border wall in exchange for protection for young immigrants brought to the country as children, who are known as Dreamers. Trump says NAFTA is bad for the U.S.

Of all the issues upon which Democrats and Republicans could campaign, in the run-up to the November midterm elections, immigration may turn out to be the one both parties try to avoid.

ABC News, citing a Kremlin aide's comments to a Russian news outlet, reported the subject of a possible meeting in Washington, D.C., came during Trump's congratulatory call to Putin, who was re-elected as Russian president several days before.

Lawmakers have been unable to strike a bargain, with the White House insisting any deal also include new restrictions on legal immigration as well as funding for the president's border wall.

The Trump administration stopped accepting new applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, on September 5, 2017.

Even though the administration and many conservatives keep arguing that DACA illegal, courts around the country presided over by judges appointed by Republican predecessors of the president have held that it is actually Trump's precipitous termination of the program that was illegal.

A group of more than a thousand migrants, mostly from Honduras, are making their way through Mexico and will arrive at the United States's southern border in a matter of days.

Mitch McConnell Wants to Take Hemp Off the Controlled Substance List
A provision pushed by McConnell allowed state agriculture departments to designate hemp research and development projects. The work of Commissioner Quarles here in Kentucky has become a nationwide example for the right way to cultivate hemp.

Trump renewed his attacks on the Democratic opposition, holding them responsible for the demise of the program which he rescinded previous year.

The next day: Trump denies offering this deal.

Trump administration officials said Monday they're crafting a new legislative package aimed at closing immigration "loopholes", hours after the president called on Republicans in Congress to immediately a pass border bill using the "Nuclear Option if necessary" to muscle it through.

The Fox headline was "Caravan of illegal immigrants headed to U.S".

"Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release". "The theory is that a lot of these people who are still trying to cross the border do not know that DACA is closed, and that smugglers are taking advantage of them by telling them that they can participate in DACA".

At least two Senate bills dealing with Dreamers, which included Democratic support, have failed to get 60 votes. He threatened to "stop" NAFTA unless Mexican authorities do more to secure the border with the United States. But Mexico has got to help us at the border.

Trump also doubled down on his criticism of the Mexican government, saying it has "the absolute power" to stop the "caravans" of hundreds of Central Americans, who, he said, are traveling across the neighboring country on their way to the U.S.

"They want in on the act!" he wrote.
