Trump tweets about 'caravans' of immigrants after Fox segment airs

Trump tweeted that the USA must build a border wall, but argued that "Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!"

Trump had said he was open to a deal with congressional Democrats to receive funds for the wall in exchange for protection for young immigrants brought to the country as children, who are known as Dreamers.

Trump has previously called for the "nuclear option" - changing Senate rules to end the filibuster. He also tweeted about Amazon, CNN, Sinclair Broadcasting, and the Justice Department - all before heading out to mingle with families on the White House South Lawn at the annual Easter Egg Roll. The $1.3 trillion funding package Congress passed last month included $1.6 billion in border wall spending.

ABC News, citing a Kremlin aide's comments to a Russian news outlet, reported the subject of a possible meeting in Washington, D.C., came during Trump's congratulatory call to Putin, who was re-elected as Russian president several days before. Congress also put restrictions on the types of barriers that can be built.

Mexico routinely stops and deports undocumented Central Americans, sometimes in numbers that rival those of the United States.

So President Trump announced no DACA deal.

Trump, who has taken a hard line toward immigration, said in September he would terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program introduced by his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, but gave the Republican-controlled Congress until March 6 to replace it.

The president ended the DACA program a year ago and gave Congress six months to pass a new law to replace it.

Tyronn Lue Rejoining The Cleveland Cavaliers
After Saturday's home game against the Pelicans , the Cavaliers have six games to go in the regular season, all but two at home. Drew has been serving as the interim coach during Lue's absence, and Cleveland has gone 6-1 during that span.

Of all the issues upon which Democrats and Republicans could campaign, in the run-up to the November midterm elections, immigration may turn out to be the one both parties try to avoid. It's a shame. A lot of people have taken advantage of DACA. The scheme is, however, now closed to new entrants.

Trump's decision to quash any remaining hopes of a Daca deal drew criticism on Sunday.

Trump did not explain what he meant when questioned by reporters as he entered the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea with the first lady and his daughter Tiffany. It will now be very hard for Democrats to portray themselves as the protectors of these DREAMers come November. "They had a great, great chance".

"The Democrats blew it", he said. Declaring that Mexico was doing "very little, if nothing" to stop narcotics and illegal immigrants from flowing across the border. "Despite their being in Mexico without authorization, no one has made any effort to stop them". Participants say they hope to ultimately gain asylum or cross without papers into the country. "It can't happen that way anymore". No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. "Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don't allow them to do their job", he added. Getting more unsafe. "Caravans" coming.

President Donald Trump, blaming Democrats and the Mexican government for an increasingly "dangerous" flow of illegal aliens, unleashed a series of tweets on Sunday in which he threatened to rule out a DACA deal and walk away from the North American Free Trade Agreement.

THE PRESIDENT: Mexico has got to help us at the border. Judd also said Congress needs to pass tougher laws, an idea Trump appeared to echo, and create more bed space for immigration authorities to house people. Gov. John Kasich of OH wrote on Twitter: "A true leader preserves & offers hope, doesn't take hope from innocent children who call America home".

But in tweets on Sunday he indicated he was done negotiating and wanted Congress to resolve the issue with legislation.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., urged Congress to take up the fight for DACA recipients.
