Trump Declares DACA Deal Dead, Calls For Tough Immigration

This being Trump, one has to wonder if he really means it, or if he’s attempting to drive Democrats to the bargaining table

(Fox News) President Trump declared on Sunday the deal for the Obama-era DACA program was “NO MORE” and called for “tough” immigration reform after a report stated a caravan carrying more than 1,000 people from Central America is traveling through Mexico and to the United States in hopes of entering the states illegally or by asking for asylum.

Trump, who has vowed to end catch and release, tweeted Sunday morning that Republicans need to take the “nuclear option” when passing tougher immigration laws.

The president had given Congress six months to pass legislation enshrining the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), which protects about 800,000 young immigrants brought to country illegally as children from deportation.

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. ‘Caravans’ coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!” the president tweeted.

The caravan the president was likely referring to was first reported by BuzzFeed News on Friday. Organized by Pueblos Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, the caravan traveled through Mexico without authorization last week, according to the report. Officials in Mexico have not attempted to stop the migrants, about 80 percent of them from Honduras. The group’s intent is to provide those people a safe way to travel to the U.S.

And they are planning on coming into the U.S. illegally in multiple ways, including sneaking in and getting caught at checkpoints, where they expect that catch and release will be used, and then they disappear into the nation. Legal Insurrection has the whole deal on this caravan on future illegals.

That all said, what happens when they do start catching them? Will the Trump admin advise the Border Patrol to refuse admittance? Immediately remove those caught entering illegally back to Mexico? And, again, does Trump actually look to move on from any DACA deal, or is this a bargaining ploy?

    tRump is trying to settle his case with Stormy by private arbitration rather than letting the American people see what he’s done.

    Also, China is instituting tariffs against industries in tRumplandia. The stock market is not pleased.

    Btw, tRump caused the DACA problem. No one else.
