Trump declares DACA 'dead', pushes wall

Mexico is no piñata, presidential frontrunner says

Donald Trump returned to the offensive on immigration on Monday, repeating a claim that "caravans" of migrants from Central America are threatening to enter the USA via Mexico and demanding: "Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!"

On Monday, Mr. Trump tweeted that "Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large "Caravans" of people enter their country". Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don't allow them to do their job.

In another Twitter post, Trump wrote, "Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of Drugs and People". He added, "Act now, Congress, our country is being stolen".

In a flurry of tweets over the weekend, President Trump made it clear to Mexico that, if the do nothing to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs, the USA will lock them out of the lucrative North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Under current immigration laws, these migrants can cross the border illegally, get detained, claim asylum, and be released into the United States with a pending court date. They flow right through Mexico. In September, Trump complained "the Senate Filibuster Rule will never allow Republicans to pass even great legislation" because Republicans "will rarely get 60" votes. But that would require changing Senate rules, something for which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has shown no enthusiasm.

Iran signed a nuclear deal with the West, Russia and China three years ago in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions. There is also a " nearly 100-page magazine published by Donald Trump's allies at American Media Inc ".

Over the weekend, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to say the DACA program is dead. "Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation".

While the tweets are amusing for members of the caravan, they aren't doing much for U.S. -Mexico relations, already suffering over Trump's support for a border wall and stalled NAFTA renegotiations.

It was Trump who last fall canceled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which was begun in the Obama administration to provide temporary protection to dreamers.

Trump announced the cancellation of Daca a year ago. That day has flown by and DACA's fate is still tied up in court, with little indicator as to what will happen to its recipients.

Trump went on to say those crossing the border "are all trying to take advantage of DACA". To qualify, immigrants must have lived in America since 2007, have arrived in the country before age 16 and have been younger than 31 on June 15, 2012. Applicants must also either be in school, or have graduated high school, or have been honourably discharged from the United States military or coast guard. Before entering church at Bethesda-By-The-Sea with first lady Melania and his daughter Tiffany, Trump stopped to answer a reporter's question about his tweet decrying "no DACA deal".

Relax Everyone, Sanaa Lathan Did Not Bite Beyoncé
The bitch is on drugs. "To me she is a Shero and a Great person I have learned so much from her in just a short amount of time ". She left out the name of the actress accused of biting Beyonce but that just made people look even deeper into it.

As for the mass of Central Americans heading for the southern border, these people are fleeing poverty, misery, and oppression in countries that Trump allegedly referred to as "sh*tholes". Remember, today is Easter Sunday.

Lawmakers were unable to strike a bargain, with the White House insisting any deal also include new restrictions on legal immigration as well as funding for the president's border wall. He has recently suggested the military could pay for the wall, a prospect experts said was extremely unlikely.

Trade representatives from the U.S., Mexico and Canada have met several times in an attempt to renegotiate NAFTA, and Trump has repeatedly threatened to pull out of the agreement if terms are not renegotiated to his liking. But Mexico has got to help us at the border.

Trump's statements appear to have come after Fox News reported on a caravan of over 1,000 Central American migrants that is now traveling through Mexico.
