RGV legislators slam Trump's Easter DACA, NAFTA tweets

President Trump arrives at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida for Easter weekend

The caravans raise awareness of the plight of migrants and refugees who take the often perilous route through Mexico to the southern border of the United States, while also attempting to make their dangerous journeys safer.

"I think the point was is that the legislation that we put forward (earlier this year) was created to have as part of it an extremely strong deterrence and prevention component", the official said.

In the program, a representative of "pueblo sin Fronteras" - a group that organizes caravans - said that the group would be drastically reduced in a few weeks when they reach the U.S-Mexican border. The $1.3 trillion funding package included $1.6 billion in border wall spending, but much of that money can be used only to fix existing segments, not to build new sections.

The organizers of the caravan, People Without Borders, claim that the president is only using the caravan as a way to push his agenda, according to Fox News.

Trump spent much of the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort, having meals with his family, watching cable news shows and rubbing elbows with conservative commentators including Fox News host Sean Hannity, according to several club members. Otherwise, he will stop "their cash cow" - or NAFTA, as he considers.

The administration proposed a somewhat scaled-down version of its wish list in a framework for a deal to preserve DACA, a program that protects young undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children, which Trump is trying to end. However, courts blocked this decision. After these tweets, Trump seems like he is not going to support a negotiation anymore. They had a great, great chance, but we'll have to take a look because Mexico has got to help us at the border. The Supreme Court denied the Justice Department's request to take up the case immediately, sending the case out of California back to the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit - and keeping the injunction in place that's keeping DACA renewals proceeding.

US President Donald Trump has declared as "dead" a program that protects immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children and pressed Congress to immediately pass legislation to secure the US border with Mexico. Registering yourself under the DACA program avails you to a wide range of benefits, including the permission to remain in U.S., get work permits, state-funded grants and loans in some states.

Trump has been seething over immigration since realizing the major spending bill he signed last month barely funds the "big, beautiful" border wall he has promised his supporters. As well, it was far from being the first time he threatened with denouncing NAFTA.

The administration is also pushing Congress to terminate a 1997 court settlement that requires the government to release children from custody to parents, adult relatives or other caretakers as their court cases proceed. People say that this practice gives way for the immigrants to skip their hearing and continue to live undetected in the country.

Targetting the Democrats over the immigration program, a fuming Donald Trump on Monday tweeted, "DACA is dead because the Democrats didn't care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon... There's no way you can end it twice", Gonzalez said. "They can go the nuclear option, just like what they did on the confirmation".

Migrants who are not capable of proving that they face prosecution or that their lives are at risk in their home county are unlikely to be allowed to remain in the US.
