Democrats are already up in arms over a list of demands issued by the Trump administration concerning new immigration policies. Among the demands was funding for the border wall between the United States and Mexico. If Congress will fund the border wall, Trump will work to protect the Dreamers who were brought to the United States when they were children.
Another part of his list of demands was a crackdown on the unaccompanied illegal minors that have been flooding into the United States.
The White House delivered the list of immigration demands to congressional leaders Sunday night and it instantly drew fire from Democrats.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck said there is no way Democrats would ever agree with this list.
U.S. President Donald Trump, who pledged to help protect young people known as “Dreamers” brought illegally to the United States as children, called on Sunday for money to fund a border wall to be part of any immigration deal.
In a list of “principles” laid out in documents released by the White House, the Trump administration also pressed for a crackdown on unaccompanied minors who enter the United States, many of them from Central America.
The plan, which was delivered to leaders in Congress on Sunday night, drew a swift rebuke from Democrats, who are seeking a legislative fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that Trump ended last month…
If Democrats don’t want to compromise and protect the US border, then the Trump administration should just enforce existing immigration laws and beginning detaining EVERY illegal alien, regardless of age or when they entered the US illegally, and begin deporting them back to their home countries. If the home countries don’t want to take them back, tough – they are their citizens not ours and the US should forcibly return them to their home countries.
