Trump's demand for border wall marks divide with GOP lawmakers

Trump DACA

President Trump insisted again on Thursday that constructing a border wall and overhauling two legal immigration programs must be part of any deal with Democrats to protect so-called "Dreamers" from deportation.

"Hopefully, everything is going to work out very well", Trump said.

Trump said in September that he was scrapping the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program put in place by his predecessor Barack Obama, but he then delayed enforcement to give Congress six months to craft a lasting solution.

The letter - signed by Michael Chertoff, who headed the agency under President George W. Bush, and Janet Napolitano and Jeh Johnson, who headed it under President Obama - says the issue involving the legal status of almost 700,000 immigrants brought to the U.S.as children needs to be resolved sooner than its official March 5 expiration date.

On the day he announced his presidential candidacy in June 2015, Donald Trump first mentioned his pledge to "build a great, great wall on our southern border".

WASHINGTON, D.C.: USA lawmakers returned to work on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) with Congress and President Donald Trump racing against the clock to reach a compromise within two weeks that avoids a government shutdown and prevents mass deportations. Trump commented on this issue [VIDEO] during a tweet on January 2. A bipartisan immigration reform plan passed the Senate in 2013 only to be shelved by the more conservative House amid growing political pressure to reject the idea.

Immigration is the focus for President Donald Trump's meeting with some Republican senators as he pushes his overhaul plan.

Trump ended DACA in 2017, though he said at the time that he would not assign federal agencies to pursue people who were covered by DACA.

"We'd love to take care of DACA, but we're only going to do it under these conditions", he concluded, laying down a red line as Congress gears up for yet another round of fights to fund the government.

Trump announced in September that he would end the Obama-era policy - upending the lives of nearly 1 million young immigrants - but he has held open the possibility of signing legislation restoring it. Although Hispanic voters largely opposed Trump's immigration proposals - including his promise of a massive wall along the U.S. -Mexico border - they listed the economy as the most important issue facing the nation, according to Pew. He passed the hot potato to Congress with a March 5 deadline for new legislation to address the issue of the Dreamers. "When you talk to [the Department of Homeland Security] and the other individuals, they talk about technology, they talk about personnel, they talk about physical barriers".

There is disagreement, however, on what that deal should look like; who will be protected, whether or not immigrants should be able to become citizens and some of the hardline principles the president has said he wants included.
