DACA students speak out after Pres. Trump tweets 'No more DACA deal'

'NO MORE DACA DEAL!': Trump Rages Against 'Ridiculous Liberal (Democrat) Laws' Trump Threatens to Stop Mexico's 'Cash Cow' Unless Fewer People Come Into US

"We can not have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way, never showing up for court".

- President Trump sent out a flurry of tweets early Monday morning on border security and the ongoing DACA issue.

"We are going to be guarding our border with the military", Trump said, calling the measure a "big step".

Trump also spoke Tuesday about the caravan of migrants from Central America now moving through Mexico who plan to turn themselves in and request asylum once they make it to the United States border. Buzzfeed, which first reported on the caravan, said that Mexican officials had not yet attempted to stop the flow.

Such a reform would allow the Republicans, who hold 52 seats in the Senate, to approve laws without the support from the Democrats, whom Trump blames of "ridiculous" migration norms in the United States. "In addition, a new immigrant couldn't take advantage of the suspended program because they have to prove they have been here for several years".

"As a result of the nationwide injunction we secured, at least 30,000 Dreamers who have renewed their DACA status - our colleagues, our classmates, our teachers - can go home to their loved ones at night and keep helping build a better America", said a statement from California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who brought a lawsuit last fall along with attorneys general for Maine, Maryland and Minnesota, as well as the University of California, DACA recipients and others. No major legislation was expected before November's congressional elections. Trump tweeted at daybreak Tuesday. "So, while our President tweets falsehoods about #DACA & Congress has failed to pass the Dream Act, our communities suffer".

The operation used the National Guard to assist border patrol with non-law enforcement duties while additional border agents were hired and trained.

"We have disgusting, awful and very unsafe laws in the United States and we're going to be able to do something about that", Trump announced at a press conference with Baltic leaders yesterday. "If they're not going to help us at the border, it's a very sad thing between two countries". Addressing reporters at the White House, he said: "NAFTA has been a horrible, horrible, embarrassing deal for the United States". The aide said there was no indication that a specific plan had even been formulated yet.

But Trump has expressed skepticism over US defense commitments overseas, and used the same press conference on Tuesday to say he wants USA involvement in Syria to end as soon as the Islamic State is defeated.

"It's certainly not something that the Mexican government welcomes", Gutierrez told CNN.

Maybe we're all confused about where Trump stands on DACA because he appears to be confused about what the program actually does.

In southern Mexico, officials screened the dwindling number of hundreds of largely Central American migrants on Tuesday.

Former President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to provide temporary protection and work permits to hundreds of thousands of immigrants who are living in the USA illegally after being brought here as children.

Some members of Congress said they were uncomfortable with the idea of using the military at the border.
