Dreamer reacts to potential DACA deal: 'We need something more concrete'

Reports of an apparent deal between President Donald Trump and Democratic congressional leaders on the fate of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants alarmed some Iowa Republicans on Thursday morning.

Also on Thursday, White House Spokeswoman Lindsay Walters repeated the president's assertion that "no deal" was made on protections for young immigrants during a dinner Wednesday night between the president and Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Soon after the program was announced in 2012, it was estimated that as many as 1.7 million people already living in the US might qualify. Quite a few Dreamers were not aware of their undocumented status because they came to the USA when they were very young; in other words, their parents never talked to them about this delicate matter. "They understand that yes, we do need to secure our border; yes, we do have an opioid problem; yes, we do have an MS-13 problem; yes, we do actually agree that we have to do this", Ryan said.

Just as she stands stead fast out of the darkness, so will Dreamers: the people we know as our friends, neighbors and fellow Americans.

"I'm hopeful that once we cut through the noise, we can come up with a permanent legislative solution for the children who were brought here through no fault of our own".

Even Ann Coulter, a conservative United States commentator who believed in Trump so much so that she wrote a book titled 'In Trump we trust' went so far as to call for his impeachment.

"If [Trump] doesn't get one of those things in the immigration package, I think it's a failure and it's not a deal", Boothe said. I say, let anyone who is here stay, and streamline the immigration process for those wishing to enter this great nation.

While the president did stress that no deal has been made, my hope is that this orange mass of colostomy waste finds another bone to gnaw on and leaves DACA alone.

During the public comment period before the approval of the resolution, most speakers, including a DACA recipient, supported it. Politifact noted in January that if Congress funded the authorization given by the law, Trump could start building a border wall. The man who posted this tweet is also the man who had many immigrants living in fear just weeks ago. She was in Milwaukee to speak at an event held by the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, and she says the unorthodox nature of the Trump presidency it's hard to compare him to past presidents or guess his next move.
