Conservatives Uneasy Over Any DACA Deal as Poll Shows 'Dreamers' Support

Confusion reigned Thursday morning after President Donald Trump offered conflicting statements on the state of a possible deal with Democratic leadership that would both extend an Obama-era immigration program and beef up border security.

But then, on Air Force One, the President sent a different message, telling House Speaker Paul Ryan by telephone that no deal had been struck with Democrats, that his dinner with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer was just a 'discussion, ' not a negotiation.

She posted in response to Trump's early morning tweet voicing his sympathy for young DACA recipients. Trump is aiming to repeal DACA by next March, and any agreement to allow the undocumented immigrants who were under DACA would likely be part of a broader border security package. "He added: "'I think we're fairly close but we have to get massive border security".

All year, Democrats have insisted that they will block any legislation that contains funding for a wall along the length of the US border with Mexico, a top Trump campaign goal that many Republicans in Congress also do not support.

"I do trust that the President is honest and understanding that the public overwhelmingly supports not sending these young people back", said Pelosi.

Fifteen states are reportedly looking to sue Trump over the decision to dismantle the programme. Trump wrote. "They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at a young age".

Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., said any deal to protect DACA recipients from being deported should include his proposal to restrict the number of people allowed to immigrate to the USA legally.

In recent tweets, Trump appeared to agree with the reasoning behind DACA, describing the Dreamers as "good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military".

Assembly speaker says he won't be 'held hostage' on budget
Walker has broad veto powers and could promise to cut something from the massive spending plan to secure the needed votes. Dave Murphy, R-Greenville, said in a statement the budget is "responsible and accountable to Wisconsin families".

Pelosi and Schumer announced the outlines of a deal Wednesday night. Trump admonished Congress to get to work to do something!. This rest of the candidates were complete idiots, so of course, you had to 100 percent support Trump.

Before sunrise, Mr. Trump tweeted that there had been no deal reached with top Democrats in Congress about the fate of "Dreamers" under the DACA program, which shielded some 800,000 younger immigrants from being deported.

"We're right now renovating large sections of wall, massive sections, making it brand new", he said.

After the President asked via Twitter if someone really wants the DREAMers out, former New York Times journalist, Jim Roberts, replied saying: "Well, actually, numerous people who helped elect you very much want that".

Should the USA treat even people too young to realize they had entered the country illegally as illegal immigrants? No.

Trump presented a hard-line immigration policy on the campaign trail and said during an August 2016 campaign speech that "there will be no amnesty."...

House Republicans would normally rebel over such an approach, which many view as amnesty for lawbreakers.

A Perdue spokeswoman said any DACA deal should include a proposal he is co-sponsoring with Arkansas Republican Sen. We were told to vote and to encourage others to vote, but we kept taking Trump and his supporters as a joke.
