This DACA Deal Is All Over The Place – Here Is Everything You Need To Know

First, Trump, Schumer, and Pelosi had a deal. Then they didn’t. Follow the tick-tock of Trump’s immigration deal with NTK Network.

It has been a confusing 18 hours in Washington, D.C., and it’s all centered around the latest supposed deal between President Trump and the two leaders of the minority party, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

 At around 9:55pm ET on Wednesday night, Schumer and Pelosi announced a deal with Trump that would make permanent protections provided by President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy and, notably, not include funding for a border wall with Mexico.

If true, the deal would have been a major win for Schumer, Pelosi, and Democrats – getting the president to make permanent a program he once opposed, without insisting on payments for his top immigration priority, a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

But Trump, in a Thursday morning tweetstorm, said there was “[n]o deal” on DACA on Wednesday night:

Trump also reiterated his support for both the “WALL” and for DACA:

Trump expanded on his comments outside the White House on Thursday morning, saying Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) are “on board” with DACA, and correcting a reporter who suggested DACA is “amnesty.”

As of Thursday morning, it’s unclear whether a deal will emerge, or what the parameters of that deal might be. However, Trump seems adamant on both building a wall and protecting so-called DREAMers, undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.
