Trump reiterates border wall promise, with a catch

Trump reiterates border wall promise, with a catch

"I have a very good relationship with Mexico".

Republican Senator James Lankford expressed hope that at next week's bipartisan meeting Trump will produce a document that specifically lays out his administration's demands for additional border security measures and other immigration law changes to accompany the new protections for Dreamers.

On Saturday Trump said that if the wall doesn't get funding, he could refrain from signing legislation protecting dreamers - the hundreds of thousands of young people brought to the country illegally as children. The $18 billion would expand the physical barrier on the US-Mexico border from its current 654 miles to almost 1,000 miles-about half of the total border. The Trump administration announced in September that it was ending the Obama-era program, but gave Congress several months to act before recipients begin to lose their protected status in March.

The President met with Senate Republicans on Thursday to discuss ways to fix DACA.

"We all want Daca to happen but we also want great security for our country", Trump said during the press conference, surrounded by members of his cabinet, the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, and the House speaker, Paul Ryan.

Trump also said he wouldn't sign unless Congress agrees to overhaul the legal immigration system, telling reporters at Camp David that any deal must include an overhaul of the family-based immigration system, as well as an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery.

Democratic lawmakers have already rejected that compromise, and the standoff could lead to a federal government shutdown.

They have steadfastly opposed Trump's call for building a southwestern border wall.

The Trump administration is preparing to ask Congress for $18 billion to build President Donald Trump's envisioned "big, handsome wall" along the U.S. -Mexico border.

'Our discussions on border security and enforcement with Democrats are much further apart, and that is key to getting a bipartisan deal on DACA, ' senators Thom Tillis and James Lankford said in a statement.
