Trump demands border wall for 'Dreamer' deal

This list of principles is now threatening to break the deal that allows the undocumented thousands of young immigrants to remain as residences legally in the country.
The new proposals, which also included southern border walls, tougher asylum rules, a crackdown on minors brought illegally from Central America, were in the nature of conditions set by the administration in return for legalizing almost 700,000 undocumented immigrants called Dreamers.
In response to Sunday's proposal, Schumer and Pelosi issued a joint statement, slamming the proposal.
White House aides further went on to tell reporters that the immigration reform demands outlined in Sunday's plan were necessary to protect American workers, as well as overall public safety.
"My experience tells me we will not stop illegal immigration unless we end the pull factors that drive it", said Tom Homan, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
"We are making it clear that the young men and women who signed up for DACA will not be used as a bargaining chip for President Trump's hateful agenda, and any attempts to build an ill-conceived wall or tear families apart is a non-starter", Murray said in a statement to the Yakima Herald-Republic Monday. These recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, often called "Dreamers", have been the focal point of recent talks between Trump and Democratic leaders of Congress.
Trump announced last month that he was ending the DACA program, but he gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix before recipients began to lose their status.
The list of demands released by the White House, however, would represent major curbs in immigration laws, including legal immigration.
The White House proposals would curb the ability of family members to join their relatives from overseas, upending decades of immigration policy, and put strict new limits on asylum claims. The Trump list includes proposals for clearing the green card system, as well as proposing funds for building a controversial border wall with Mexico, blocking minors entering the country.
The proposals include funding for a southern border wall and are likely to be rebuked by Democrats.
Sources familiar with the administration's thinking say Trump's new immigration wish list reflects the influence of top White House policy adviser Stephen Miller, Miller known for his nationalist views and hardline immigration approach. However, looking at his list, it seems to be a pretty impossible task for any one program to encompass all of the measures he wants to be included.
However, there was no reference to the H-1B visas, the most sought after by Indian IT professionals, in the proposal which Trump sent to Congress on Sunday.
