Dem Lawmaker Says Most in His Party Will Oppose DACA Fix Tied to Border Wall Funding

President Trump with House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn R-Texas. and Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell of Ky. speaks to reporters after a retreat where GOP leaders made plans for a 2018 agenda

Rep. Joaquin CastroJoaquin CastroThe almost 60 Dems who voted for impeachment House rejects Democrat's resolution to impeach Trump Latino Dems grow frustrated with Kelly amid "Dreamers" debate: report MORE (D-Texas) said late Sunday he believes most Democrats will vote against any immigration bill that addresses the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program if it includes funding for a border wall.

Fresh off a huge win on tax reform, President Donald Trump will now try to use the art of the deal to push Democrats into approving funding for a border wall. It's unclear, however, whether they could pass the bill through the Senate where they only narrowly outnumber their Democratic counterparts.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was formed in 2012 allowing certain people called "Dreamers" who came to the U.S. illegally as minors to be protected from immediate deportation.

"I can only speak for the House of Representatives, of course", Castro said.

We as Democrats understand the challenges brought on by the current Administration to end DACA for hundreds of thousands of people across the United States.

According to CNN, Trump has indicated that he would work with Democrats on legislation to make the DACA program permanent if they agree to fund his proposal for a border wall.

He added that he is "still optimistic" Congress can reach a solution on the program.

"The administration can't be serious about compromise or helping the Dreamers if they begin with a list that is anathema to the Dreamers, to the immigrant community and to the vast majority of Americans", they said.

"The President has made his intentions very clear".

The White House says the price of doing business on a DACA deal is several immigration policy changes, including at least $18 billion for a border wall.
