Trump shamelessly uses "Dreamers" as leverage for border wall funding

Trump and Democrats Working on Deal Over Future of DACA Recipients Before Program Expires

The Trump administration is preparing to ask Congress for $18 billion to build President Donald Trump's envisioned "big, handsome wall" along the U.S. -Mexico border.

The White House asked Congress for $18 billion dollars for a border wall, to go along with a laundry list of other hard-line immigration policies like "money to hire 10,000 additional immigration officers, tougher laws for those seeking asylum, and denial of federal grants to so-called 'sanctuary cities'".

The proposal by Customs and Border Protection calls for 316 miles (505 kilometers) of additional barrier by September 2027, bringing total coverage to 970 miles (1,552 kilometers), or almost half the border, according to a USA official with direct knowledge of the matter.

In September, President Trump gave Congress 6 months to come up with a solution to protect as many as 800,000 people who are benefiting from the DACA program.

Trump said previous year that he was ending DACA but gave Congress until March to deliver a legislative fix.

"We all want DACA to happen but we all want great security for our country", Trump said.

According to Congressman Henry Cuellar, the Trump Administration has started talks about putting up 130 miles of wall or fencing along the border in the Webb County area.

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.

"President Trump has said he may need a good government shutdown to get his wall", Dick Durbin, the No 2 Senate Democrat, said in a statement in response to the administration's proposed border plan. "With this demand, he seems to be heading in that direction".

Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin has been meeting with a bipartisan group of senators almost every day to negotiate DACA's future.
