Trump warns this is the ‘last chance’ to fix DACA

President Trump on Tuesday said that this is the “last chance” to fix the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

He made that remark in a tweet, weeks prior to the March 5 deadline for Congress to come up with a legislative solution for ‘Dreamers,’ undocumented immigrants brought into the U.S. as children.

“Negotiations on DACA have begun. Republicans want to make a deal and Democrats say they want to make a deal. Wouldn’t it be great if we could finally, after so many years, solve the DACA puzzle. This will be our last chance, there will never be another opportunity! March 5th,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

This is one of many tweets the president has recently posted on DACA.

“Republicans want to fix DACA far more than the Democrats do. The Dems had all three branches of government back in 2008-2011, and they decided not to do anything about DACA. They only want to use it as a campaign issue. Vote Republican!” Trump tweeted on Saturday.

On the other hand, Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have criticized Trump for his negotiating tactics.

According to The Hill, “Trump has said that any legislative solution for Dreamers must also include funding for border security and his long-promised wall between the U.S. and Mexico — a demand that Democrats have largely rejected.”

Trump announced in September that he would be ending the DACA program and tasked lawmakers with creating a plan that will offer continued protections to the program’s roughly 800,000 participants.
