Is there a deal on DACA? Conflicting accounts spur confusion

The DACA program, created by President Obama in 2012, allows undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children to remain in the country and obtain a work permit, provided that they finish high school and maintain a clean criminal record. "We don't have control of our borders", he said. "So we're working on a plan, we'll see how it works out", Trump told reporters on Thursday.

"Trump earlier Thursday questioned why people would want to force DACA recipients out of the country". "I think it's something that we need to look at on a bipartisan basis, so to the extent that he can help get Democrats at the table to talk about border security, he can also get Republicans to the table about how to deal with DREAMers". "Otherwise we're not doing any deal".

Ann Coulter, conservative Republican commentator and author of the book "In Trump We Trust", reached peak Donald Trump frustration on Thursday morning when she tweeted, "At this point, who doesn't want Trump impeached?" and said she'd prefer President Mike Pence if the promised border wall falls through. Chuck Schumer of NY and Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, the top Democrats on Capitol Hill. On Monday, the university also announced its support of a federal lawsuit against the Trump administration filed by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.

"If you listen to the president's comments this is clear that what Leader Pelosi and I put out last night was exactly accurate", said Schumer.

Middlehof encourages her students to focus on their education and reaching their goals after high school, but understands how hard that can be when they are anxious about the possibility of deportation. It's a reversal. In fact the Daily Caller does a fine job of revisiting a 2016 campaign speech in Arizona where Trump went after Lindsey Graham and Jeb Bush on the subject, chiding them for just being politicians who think that "immigration reform" means "amnesty, open borders, and lower wages".

But Breitbart was already labeling Trump "Amnesty Don". "He's on board. Everybody is on board", Trump said.

Brat said the current Dream Act proposal, which includes a path to citizenship, is a "non-starter" for conservatives.

Speaking to reporters on a trip to visit Hurricane Irma survivors in Naples, Florida, Trump said funding the wall did not have to be part of a DACA deal, but he expected Democrats to pledge not to obstruct the wall's construction.

"We're right now renovating large sections of wall, massive sections, making it brand new", he said.

"We agreed that the President would support enshrining DACA protections into law, and encourage the House and Senate to act", the Democratic leaders said. Schumer's staff replied that whatever Trump's future plans for a wall, he had at least agreed to stand down for this deal.

Trump met late Wednesday at the White House with leaders of the Democratic minority factions in the Senate and the House of Representatives.

However, since then the president has not seemed comfortable with a harsh approach toward immigrants brought here illegally as kids, and he has been inclined recently to turn to Democrats to jump-start legislative imperatives. But does anyone really believe that the Democrats will sign on for any of those things as part of a deal?

Over the next 12 hours, Trump and Republican leaders appeared to deny any such deal was in the works.

It is time for the people of the United States of America to do their own work.
