President Trump: "Mexico Will Pay for the Wall"

President Trump:

Lawmakers face a 5 March deadline to find a legislative fix for the young immigrants after the Trump administration rescinded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or Daca, the Obama-era program that offered legal status to roughly 800,000 younger undocumented migrants.

"Where I don't understand the pushback is, in 2013 if everybody was for the 700 miles of double fencing, but now they're not for it because Trump calls it a wall - to me that does not make sense", said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, the labor union for the Border Patrol agents.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the Senate Democratic whip, smiles as he heads for a weekly policy luncheon on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2017.

"What the American people do want, in overwhelming numbers, is to provide legal protection to 800,000 Dreamers and a path toward citizenship for them", he continued, referring to a common name for young immigrants who came to the USA illegally as children.

Now, Trump is using the DACA card to force the Democrats into a position of surrender on funding his administration's demands for the border wall.

Donald Trump insisted on Saturday that Mexico would pay for a wall along the southern U.S. border, one day after his administration asked Congress for $18bn over the next decade to start construction on the barrier. "There is an immediate need to protect the DACA recipients, so the deal will be more narrow than that".

"We all want Daca to happen but we also want great security for our country", Trump said during the press conference, surrounded by members of his cabinet, the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, and the House speaker, Paul Ryan.

Two other Republicans late on Thursday said the sides remained far apart. Some say this list of demands from the White House could derail those negotiations. "Bipartisan negotiations continue in good faith among senators who understand what is at stake, and I will continue my efforts to reach a bipartisan agreement". At the time, he estimated the construction would cost $10 billion and cover the entire 2,000-mile border.
