For A Deal On DREAMers, White House Demands Border Wall Funding

In exchange for letting young undocumented immigrants, dubbed DREAMers, stay in the United States legally, the Trump administration will ask Congress to fund a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and limit federal grants to “sanctuary cities,” The Washington Post reports, citing a document the administration distributed to Congress. White House aides told reporters Sunday that these proposals are necessary for public safety and to make jobs for Americans. Democrats have already called the demands a nonstarter, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saying they told President Trump “we were open to reasonable border security measures … but this list goes so far beyond what is reasonable.”
