President Donald Trump appears to have backed off his proposal to offer a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children in exchange for funding for his border wall in a Monday tweet.

Trump appears to have reached a breaking point this weekend expressing his frustration at the lack of funding for his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The President also said Sunday that there will be “NO MORE DACA DEAL”, indicating that his past concessions to Congressional democrats on immigration policy may be now moot.

Trump’s tweets are largely in response to a current illegal immigrant caravan from Central America bound for the U.S. border. The migrants openly admit their desire to illegally emigrate to the U.S. and have organizers who do not believe in the concept of borders.

Mexican authorities have made no effort to stop the caravan, which is composed of hundreds of Central American migrants who illegally crossed into their country.
