Venting on Immigration, Trump Vows 'No More DACA Deal' and Threatens Nafta

Venting on Immigration, Trump Vows 'No More DACA Deal' and Threatens Nafta”

"A lot of people are coming in because they want to take advantage of DACA". "The Democrats blew it". "But Mexico has got to help us at the border".

Last week, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer expressed optimism that negotiations to modify NAFTA to terms more favourable to the United States were making progress and that a deal in principle could be reached quickly. "Can't happen that way anymore".

President Donald Trump declared Sunday that a deal to help "Dreamer" immigrants was "NO MORE" and threatened to pull out of a free trade agreement with Mexico unless it does more to stop people from crossing into the U.S. He claimed they're coming to take advantage of protections granted certain immigrants.

Trump's new tweets also appear to come in response to reports that a huge caravan of Central Americans is making its way through Mexico to the US.

Trump tweeted on Sunday morning that Republicans must change Senate laws to pass tougher border and immigration legislation and also implied he would no longer support a bipartisan deal for a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program fix.

Trump's reversal on DACA comes after weeks of him seeking to pin the blame on Democrats for the unresolved fate of so-called Dreamers who find themselves in limbo because the president ended the program in September.

Trump had initially said that he would agree on protections for DACA recipients if Congress approved funding for a proposed wall along the USA southern border with Mexico.

However, he went on to reject immigration proposals from congressional Democrats.

"The mask of deceptions and lies with which Trump has tried to gaslight the country for months just fell away: 'no more DACA deal, '" Beyer tweeted on Sunday, quoting Trump's earlier tweet. The group is reportedly fleeing poverty, violence, and political unrest in the region, hoping to get asylum once they make it to America - although some have said they'll cross the border illegally if necessary.

Trump on Sunday continued on Twitter that Mexico is doing "very little, if not NOTHING", to stop the flow of people across the southern border. "They want in on the act!" he said in a follow-up tweet. The Trump administration last month pitched a deal to extend it for two-and-a-half years in exchange for $25 billion to construct the president's border wall, but Democrats refused.
