RGV legislators slam Trump's Easter DACA, NAFTA tweets

Less than two weeks ago, Mr. Trump tweeted, "remember DACA, the Democrats abandoned you (but we will not)!"

President Donald Trump doubled down Monday morning on a misleading weekend tweet about immigration that was based on a Fox News report.

United States plans to deploy military forces at the US-Mexico border, said President Donald Trump while addressing the Baltic leaders at a summit earlier on Tuesday.

Congress failed to meet that deadline, but courts have ruled the program can stay in place for now. "DACA is dead because the Democrats didn't care or act" was Monday's followup.

Senior administration officials told reporters that legislation was being prepared aimed at helping expedite some deportations of immigrants in the country illegally. She thinks Congress will prevent that given public opinion polls in support of the DACA recipients.

Democrats rejected the President's offer of a DACA deal in exchange for a border wall and immigration reforms. McConnell says Republicans will welcome the 60-vote margin if they return to the minority. In another, he wrote in all caps, "ACT CONGRESS!" In the town of Ixtepec, more than 1,500 men, women and children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala waited in a sweltering warehouse on Saturday, mattresses rolled and bags packed, as local authorities and immigration officials from Mexico's federal government organised 15 buses to take them to their next stop on the long journey north.

It was his second consecutive day of using Twitter to rail against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, saying it was being exploited amid lax border security.


He added, "We'll see what happens".

Now many DACA recipients argued they oppose having their fate tied to a border wall.

"Mexico has got to help us at the border.

That's because Mexico has very strong immigration laws, as we should have", Trump said on Tuesday. "Getting more unsafe. "Caravans" coming". Must pass tough laws and build the WALL. President tirade began Sunday morning, not long after the program "Fox and Friends" aired this segment about a caravan of Honduran immigrants on their way through Mexico towards the USA border where they plan to seek asylum.

Trump has privately floated the idea of funding construction of a border wall with Mexico through the USA military budget in conversations with advisers, two sources confirmed to CNN last week. "You had to have been in the United States by the year 2007 to receive DACA, then you had to have entered under the age of 16, so people clearly are not coming for DACA", she said.

The populist genius Trump instinctively knew that what people wanted in their Easter baskets was not more jellybeans, but more "Nuclear Option" and "NAFTA" rhetoric.

Asked to clarify his comments during a joint news conference, Trump said he is "preparing for the military to secure our border" and he would be attending a meeting on the topic of border security with Mattis and others "in a little while".
