    DonViejo (30,962 posts) REPUBLICANS TELL DEMOCRATS: 'WE'LL GIVE YOU DACA IF YOU FUND TRUMP'S BORDER WALL'

    BY GRAHAM LANKTREE ON 9/5/17 AT 6:40 AM

    Senior Congressional Republicans are willing to work with Democrats to keep a program allowing young people who came to America illegally with their parents to stay in the U.S. But Democrats will in return have to give President Donald Trump funding for his border wall.

    Early Tuesday Attorney General Jeff Sessions is expected to announce an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that grants two-year U.S. work permits to 800,000 young illegal immigrants known as “Dreamers.”

    President Trump said last Friday: “We think the Dreamers are terrific,” but by Sunday he decided to cancel the program with a six month grace period.

    Ending the program means that young undocumented immigrants—nearly half of whom came to the U.S. before the age of six—could be deported.

    A number of Senior House Republican sources told Politico Monday that they are willing to make the DACA program law, but only in exchange for initial funding in 2018 for Trump’s plan to build a border wall.

    The DACA program could be made law through the bipartisan Dream Act already before Congress.

    1. We would be better off taking our chances in court. Seek a stay first and go the lawsuit route.

    No form of DACA should be passed and implemented until after the wall is built. Otherwise, as Carol suggested, the Ds will get their DACA "today" but when budget vote times come, renege on funding the wall, similar to what they did to Reagan in the mid-80s.
    I support UNexit: Get the US out of the UN; Get the UN out of the US!

    Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    "Vulnerable children"? Some of these "kids" are on the near side of 40 now and more than a few have been lying about their age the whole time.

    Congress doesn't have to work with their useless party like Reagan had to, and they are way out of their minds if they think even this Congress would okay (and override a veto) DREAM six months before an election.

    If it's up to me, I'd say you've got a deal. I don't think the wall will do much since a lot of people are here on expired visas. However, if this is what it would take to protect people who grew up here and only know the US as their home, then so be it. And I'll also support my senator's idea about earning legal status through work, education, or serving in the military. I am hoping that Democrats and uncompromising Republicans don't ruin this as they did the replacement of Obamacare.

    Honestly, it is disgusting that libs, media and SJW's don't give a damn about people that were born in the great U.S.A. Yet anyone else, illegal immigrants should be entitled to everything. My great grandparents emigrated here legally and created a life. Now is is just free stuff.

    Exactly. And at this point I don't trust the word of Republicans in congress anymore than I do the democrats. The wall needs to be built, not just funded.
