Trump's DACA deal talk exposes old divisions among his media cheerleaders

Democratic Party leaders said they had come to a tentative agreement with Mr Trump over dinner on Wednesday, which would have further militarised the United States border with Mexico while protecting people now covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme.

Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement Wednesday night that they agreed in principle to a deal with Trump that would enshrine DACA protections into law.

"The president is in Florida this morning contradicting what he said as he left the White House earlier in the morning". Mr. Trump denied that in a series of tweets Thursday morning.

Pelosi, Schumer and Trump agreed to "work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that's acceptable to both sides", the joint statement read. "He added: "'I think we're fairly close but we have to get massive border security".

In Winchester Public Schools, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program Coordinator Kim Peterson said she is ready to support these students in whatever way she can, but she doesn't know how best to do that.

Trump did not appear to be facing a fully-fledged mutiny, yet, over his seeming willingness to put the border wall project on the back burner. Started in 2012, DACA awarded a renewable, two-year work permit and a reprieve from deportation proceedings to undocumented immigrants who came to the country before they were 16 years old and were 30 or younger as of June 2012.

Everyone has been attacked except white people who support the ideas he wants to enforce on the American people.

Rep. Steve King, arguably the most anti-immigration member of Congress, tweeted Wednesday night that if this agreement is struck, "Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix".

"Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?"

"We can not wait for Trump's self-imposed six months' deadline for Congress to do something", said Kica Matos, of the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM).

The tweet came as top Democrats said they had made a deal with the President to protect the so-called "Dreamers" from being deported.

Those protected by the legislation are known as "DREAMers" after the Dream Act that was first introduced in 2001 but stalled in Congress for many months, leading to President Obama enacting DACA. "That is a false narrative, evil narrative some people want to spread", said the Rev. Rob Boulter, with the Cathedral of the Incarnation.

The wall will come later, we're right now renovating large sections of wall, massive sections, making it brand new.

House Republicans would normally rebel over such an approach, which many view as amnesty for lawbreakers.

Representative Linda Sanchez, a Democrat from California who leads the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, said Schumer and Pelosi had insisted on the DREAM Act as part of negotiations, "not something that's a half-measure, like the Curbelo bill".

"There is a fee of $495 so they have to pay that fee to submit the application and pay for biometrics because the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires they need a photo taken and have their fingerprints taken to determine they don't have any criminal issues", said Alarcon. We were told to vote and to encourage others to vote, but we kept taking Trump and his supporters as a joke.
