According to President Trump, Hard-line immigration Policies & DACA
By: Sabrina Orlov •
President Donald Trump's extended list of immigration changes has not met with great enthusiasm among lawmakers who are hoping to negotiate a deal to protect the hundreds of thousands of young DACA immigrants from being deported.
The list of Trumps' demands included the funding of a border wall between the US and Mexico along with harsher penalties for the "Sanctuary Cities". Both points have great popularity with Trump supporters but meet strong objection with Democrats and even some Republicans who are struggling to unify around a deal.
House and Senate leaders, both Republican and Democrat have stated that they want to reach a solution to extend the deportation protections granted under former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. President Trump's announcement a month ago that he will begin phasing out DACA gave Congress 6 months to react before the DACA work permits begin expiring.
President Truump has now appeared to the outline of an agreement with the House and Senate's top Democrats, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, whereby the President will consider extending DACA protections in exchange for comprimise on border security measures.
