US President Trump Says Deal On Young Migrants 'Fairly Close'

Legislation reform of the DACA program may not be linked to funding for a Mexican border wall

Those comments come just hours before The Washington Post reported President Trump struck a deal with Congressional Democrats to shield those undocumented immigrants from deportation but not build a physical wall along the southern border.

"We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that's acceptable to both sides", Schumer and Pelosi said in a statement. And he repeatedly challenged Deputy Assistant Attorney General Brett Shumate to persuade the government to extend an October 5 deadline for DACA recipients to renew their applications.

On the Hill, many Republicans were supportive. The question is whether they can find common ground for an agreement that does both.

"That's an important position because we can not make a 2,200 mile (3,540 km) wall a condition for passing the Dream Act and we've been very clear from the start", said Senator Dick Durbin, a senior Democrat who has been working for the past 16 years to legislate protections for the Dreamers.

UC Berkeley alumna Lily Woo, who has been involved with EBSC for two years, said helping undocumented community members get as many renewals done by the October 5 deadline is paramount, but she added that the free workshops also include information sessions meant to educate the sanctuary's undocumented clientele about what options are available to them once DACA is terminated.

Well, unless Sarah Huckabee Sanders has taken up the aforementioned habit of abusing hallucinogenics, we had Donald Trump wrong all along.

In order to qualify for DACA, undocumented citizens have to have lived in the us since june 15th 2007, can not have any criminal history, and have to ben enrolled in school or to have graduated from high school.

We're not talking about amnesty.

"The City would suffer tangible losses from the Trump Administration's actions given the significant services, work product, and taxes that these employees now contribute to their community", city officials said. "In terms of what?" And we know he can't be in favor of that, right? Or in this case, time to pass a legislative version of DACA.

Pelosi and Schumer announced the outlines of a deal Wednesday night. We're working on a plan for DACA. Don't blame a president who upholds the law.

Walsh, a former Republican congressman for IL, said in a series of tweets that he was incorrect to believe that Trump would fulfill his campaign promises on immigration and the border wall between the US and Mexico.

Rep. Steve King, arguably the most anti-immigration member of Congress, tweeted Wednesday night that if this agreement is struck, "Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix. Really", Trump tweeted Thursday. "We'll never be for the wall".

By the time Mr. Trump spoke to reporters for the fourth time, he was back to criticizing the Democrats about the wall.

A Perdue spokeswoman said any DACA deal should include a proposal he is co-sponsoring with Arkansas Republican Sen.

"There is a fee of $495 so they have to pay that fee to submit the application and pay for biometrics because the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires they need a photo taken and have their fingerprints taken to determine they don't have any criminal issues", said Alarcon. The problem was everyone else running for president wants to fling open our border, our southern border with a big sign, free medical care, free housing, free food. But the bright spot, he said, is that at least discussions are on going.
