President Donald Trump and congressional Democratic leaders discussed Wednesday night pairing the "DREAM Act" with border security as part of an overall immigration deal, according to a source briefed on their dinner. President Trump has given Congress six months to come up with a replacement before he slowly phases away DACA protections.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said after the meeting that they had reached a deal to keep DACA in place, but Trump took to Twitter Thursday morning to say that was not the case.
The original bill primarily directs the Department of Homeland Security to grant resident status to illegal immigrants who entered into the USA under age 18 or who have lived in the country longer than four years. The program began in June 2012.
While Trump remains committed to his campaign promise to build the wall along the United States border with Mexico, "whether or not that is specifically part of a DACA package or a different legislative package, I am not going to prejudge here today", Short said.

In the next paragraph, he gets into supposition in the form of prediction, saying today's DACA recipients "would quickly become millions of newcomers, who may well be low-skilled and who would nearly certainly include the parents who brought them". Eight students have voluntarily told the university that they are part of the program, according to Dr. Karen Pennington, Vice President for Student Development and Campus Life.
"Right now we're booked solid doing DACAs", said David Osio, director. For example, the argument that DACA recipients can't be held responsible for their parents' actions miscasts parents as criminals; additionally, making assumptions about recipients' identities only masks the issues that many face. LASO plans to host DACA awareness events on campus during the upcoming Latino/Latina Heritage Month. "We're looking at allowing people to stay here". I think he has consistently over a period of time expressed his desire to do something with them differently than perhaps what some people perceived.
