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.
DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon… No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!

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.
Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!

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.
