Trump Border Wall ‘Derailed’ as Democrats Reject Funding Over Young ‘Dreamers’ Migrant Row

DONALD Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico has been dealt another blow after Democrats ruled out his request for funding in a bid to protect “Dreamers” migrants.

President Trump had earlier pledged to work with the Democrats to protect “Dreamers” – young people brought illegally to the US as children – but a list of immigration “principles” reportedly laid out in a document presented to Congress have sparked outrage from Democrats.

Congressional Democrats rejected the President’s requests that renewed protection for “Dreamers” would be included alongside funding for a border wall and money for thousands more immigration officers.


House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said: “We told the President at our meeting that we were open to reasonable border security measures alongside the DREAM Act, but this list goes so far beyond what is reasonable.

“This proposal fails to represent any attempt at compromise.”`

The White House priorities, if enacted, could result in the deportation of Dreamers’ parents.

The proposals include a request for funds to hire 370 more immigration judges, 1,000 attorneys for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, 300 federal prosecutors and 10,000 additional ICE agents to enforce immigration laws.

That is what voters want. Obstructionist Democrats don’t pay attention to voters. They only care about immigrants, illegal immigrants, and those who will vote for their handouts. Democrats have not won the white vote since the 1960s!

    This is what they have always done in years past this is why there are now millions of illegal aliens from Mexico living in the US.
    Does anyone really believe that Mexico would allow that many out of work US citizens invade THEIR COUNTRY??? HELL NO THEY WOULD NOT! A lot of this is the democrats fault, pretty much all of it because they have steadfastly refused to lift a finger to secure our border with Mexico. Once or twice they did vote for some money to fix a few things that was needed for the border fence but when the money was available it was quickly used for something else not the fence. These people will lie to get what what they want. As each of these crooks come up for reelection pick out a person that is a republican that has your values an thinks like you about the border, illegal aliens.
