Immigration demands linked to support for DACA

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters before leaving the White House in Washington for a brief stop at Andrews Air Force Base in Md. on his way to Greensboro N.C. The Trump administration sent an immigration policy wish

Also on the list is cracking down on sanctuary cities, curbing the number of unaccompanied minors entering the USA, and limiting legal immigration.

A White House aide who requested anonymity told The Washington Post that the Trump administration was "not interested in granting a path to citizenship".

Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro, first vice chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, suggested the Administration was being hypocritical: while stressing the importance of strong families, he said, it is working to implement policies that would split immigrant youth from their parents.

Instead, the White House list includes longstanding demands of the Republican Party's immigration hardliners, including expediting removals of unaccompanied children arriving at the border; tightening standards for people allowed to seek asylum in the us; barring immigrants who have been convicted of a range of crimes, including drunk driving; and barring federal grants to so-called "sanctuary cities" that do not turn over illegal immigrants to federal authorities.

DACA comprises of about 690,000 immigrants, however, each of their permits will be reaching expiration date effective March.

"These priorities are essential to mitigate the legal and economic consequences of any grants or status to DACA recipients", Short said. In deciding to end it in September, he put DACA on track to be phased out in six months and has urged Congress to pass a replacement before that deadline. Before agreeing to provide legal status for 800,000 young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children, US President Donald Trump will insist on building a wall along the southern border, and hiring 10,000 immigration agents.

"With the leadership of President Trump and Vice President Pence, we will work together to address our country's immigration crisis and issues surrounding it like DACA, sanctuary cities, chain migration and the flow of illegal drugs", Rokita said in the statement.

Despite the vagueness, Democrats portrayed that as a capitulation to Trump and a move toward a misguided, costly and relatively ineffective approach to border security.

They had to go through an Federal Bureau of Investigation background check and have a clean criminal background, and either be in education, have recently graduated or have been honourably discharged from the military.

We will see if Democrats know the art of compromise.

Sens. Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) and Charles E. Schumer (D-New York) criticized Trump's administration in a joint statement saying that their list of immigration proposals is a "anathema to the Dreamers, to the immigrant community and to the vast majority of Americans".

The list included President Donald Trump's proposed border wall. "If the president was serious about protecting the Dreamers, his staff has not made a good faith effort to do so".

This comes just weeks after President Trump and Democratic leaders claimed to have agreed to a deal on DACA.

A White House official told Reuters on Sunday the principles were a guide for the legislative process it hopes Republicans and Democrats will take up.
