Trump Suggests Any DACA Deal With Democrats Is Dead

President Trump arrives at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida for Easter weekend

"About 2,300 young people have received DACA in the state of Louisiana", said Susan Weishar, Ph.D., a migration specialist in the Jesuit Social Research Institute at Loyola University.

"We can not have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way, never showing up for court".

Maryland's sole Republican in Congress, Andy Harris, told WJZ earlier this year that he wants stronger border security but does not want to deport Dreamers.

Over the past several months, DACA recipients have felt very uncertain about their status. "They work hard, they study hard, they love advancing their education", said Dr. Weishar. "They've really let them down". They've really let 'em down.

"And the fact is, is that Democratic leadership gave up all the leverage they had to get a DACA deal done", Vela said.

Dr. Weishar commented on the uncertainty that would befall "dreamers".

Trump has previously called for the "nuclear option" - changing Senate rules to end the filibuster.

"With all of the money they make from the USA, hopefully they will stop people from coming through their country and into ours, at least until Congress changes our immigration laws!" he tweeted. "Now people are taking advantage of DACA", Trump went on.

Activists at Connecticut Students for a Dream - a youth-led statewide network fighting for the rights of undocumented youth and their families - said Trump's rhetoric misrepresents the situation, in an attempt to stoke fear.

Dr. Weishar said that argument is flawed.

"Congress will have to pass a law to make sure that DACA is stabilized into law and not only stabilized into law, but providing a pathway to citizenship". People aren't coming to DACA.

"The benefits of DACA is a work permit, security number, driver's license, in Minnesota and some other states you can get in-state tuition", Rivera said.

"The DACA application is very complex", she said.

Neither a brief government shutdown in January engineered by the Democrats nor House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's eight-hour filibuster in February led to a DACA deal. "I was just kind of flabbergasted and I didn't know what to think".

Those deliberations have gone nowhere despite Trump's stated willingness to provide a path to citizenship for almost two million undocumented immigrants who could be considered eligible for the programme.

"NAFTA is a phenomenal deal for Mexico but it is a frightful day for the United States". But in one of his posts, he used the word "caravan" to refer to people crossing into the U.S. via Mexico, seemingly borrowing it from a Fox News segment on migrants from Central America headed for the USA through Mexico - that particular news ran on Monday with the word "caravan" in a headline.

DACA protects Dreamers like Camacho-Perez from deportation. They did not provide a timetable for submitting it to Congress and did not say whether provisions to help DACA recipients would be included.
