[Ed. – There’s a sizable constituency that doesn’t want DACA at all, so this will be interesting. Pavlich writes of negotiating with Democrats, but Republicans are as much of a negotiating issue on this topic. They’re all over the map.]
As lawmakers prepare to come back to work in Washington D.C. after the New Year, President Trump is laying the groundwork for a negotiation with Democrats on illegal immigration.
Funding for the wall is expected in the budget, which needs to pass by January 19. President Trump will likely visit a series of wall prototypes being built in San Diego as plans move forward.
In September Trump announced DACA must be handled through a legislative process, not by pen in the Oval Office. He also said at the time that the details of a deal in Congress were being worked on and again said DACA should come in exchange for the wall.
The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. We must protect our Country at all cost!
