President Trump's immigration demands have Dreamers anxious

  • Donald Trump's new list of immigration 'principles' has listed a border wall as a priority

Trump's suggestion after a meeting with Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer in the Senate and Nancy Pelosi in the House of Representatives that wall funding would not have to be part of a DACA fix alarmed some of his supporters.

The demands sent to lawmakers Sunday call for limiting family-based green cards to spouses and the minor children of USA citizens and lawful permanent residents.

People work at the construction site of eight prototypes for President Donald Trump's border wall with Mexico, in San Diego, California September 27, 2017.

President Donald Trump, who penned the aforementioned book in 1987, has more or less offered a deal, primarily to Democrats in Congress, that could preserve his predecessor's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, also known as "Dreamers".

Fast-forward to Sunday, when senior Trump administration officials offered their early demands for an immigration bill - one that preserves DACA at a steep price for its supporters.

White House legislative affairs director Marc Short, on the other hand, believes the list is "essential to mitigate" the protection of 800,000 dreamers.

In return for supporting a plan allowing people brought to this country illegally as children to stay and work, Trump is requiring congressional funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, a crackdown on the influx of Central American minors and curbing federal grants to "sanctuary cities".

About 690,000 recipients are now enrolled in the program, and their work permits are due to expire in March 2018.

The list, which also includes preventing immigrants from sponsoring their extended families to move to the United States, drew immediate fire from Democratic leaders in Congress, who said it goes "far beyond what is reasonable". Implemented under former President Barack Obama, the initiative has allowed about 800,000 beneficiaries, known as Dreamers, to live and work in the US on renewable authorizations.

The list centered around three main priorities, which the White House said are "to ensure safe and lawful admissions; defend the safety and security of our country; and protect American workers and taxpayers".

Trump's tense relationship with Tillerson burst into public view last week.

Democratic leaders quickly rejected the Trump's wish list. This proposal fails to represent any attempt at compromise, ' they added.

The list, which also includes proposals to dramatically increase the number of immigration enforcement officials was issued unexpectedly in the middle of a long weekend.

Mr. Schumer and Mrs. Pelosi, who received the immigration principles on Sunday, reacted with dismay.

Steve Barlock, a gubernatorial candidate and former Denver Trump Campaign Co-Chair, said however that Trump supporters need border security if they are going to support DACA recipients citizenship.
