  • Trump says Mexico not stopping migrant flow

In a series of tweets on Monday morning, Trump said Mexico must stop caravans of Central Americans fleeing persecution and claimed that "our country is being stolen".

In the past, Trump had said he was open to a deal with congressional Democrats in which they would support funding for the border wall in exchange for protection for the Dreamers.

"DACA is dead because the Democrats didn't care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon", the Republican president said in a Twitter post. But that would require changing Senate rules, something for which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has shown no enthusiasm.

Mexican government officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

While the president did not detail what documents he was referring to, only minutes before his tweet, Fox News aired a segment about opening up documents related to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Congress also put restrictions on the types of barriers that can be built. "They want in on the act!"

The Daca -Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals- is a scheme providing protected status to those who entered the USA illegally as children. President Barack Obama's administration allowed sign-ups during a set period of time, and the program is closed to new entrants.

The Trump Administration's attempt to end "Catch & Release" has been hampered by the reality that immigration authorities don't have the space to hold every immigrant who is detained at the border, according to Reuters.

The Department of Homeland Security is not issuing new permits, though existing ones can be renewed. The opportunity to do DACA was in the most recent omnibus.

Trump expanded on what he meant in comments to reporters as he walked into church in Palm Beach, Florida with wife Melania for an Easter service.

"The Democrats have really let them down", he added during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, adding: "It's a shame".

"'Caravans' coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW". Meanwhile, the bipartisan option the White House vigorously lobbied against did gain a majority of votes, but fell six votes shy of the 60 needed to advance under Senate rules.

President Donald Trump is calling for new border wall and immigration legislation, tweeting that moving to the "nuclear option" in the Senate is only way to muscle such a measure through Congress.

Earlier in March, former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, who was in England to meet him, were poisoned in Salisbury. May says "their condition is unlikely to change in the near future, and they may never recover fully".

His tweet follows his assertion on Sunday that "ridiculous liberal" Democrats were impeding Border Patrol agents' ability to "do their job". Getting more unsafe. "Caravans" coming.

The president's tweets came after Fox News' "Fox & Friends" reported early Sunday on what it said is a group of 1,200 immigrants, mostly from Honduras, headed to the U.S.

The caravan spent last night in the southwestern state of Oaxaca, in a region called the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.

Trump spoke briefly to hundreds of guests on the South Lawn, pointing to a "special year" for the country and progress on the economy.

"They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA".

"Mexico has got to help us at the border". They've previously criticized his immigration stance but have backed many of his other policies.

"Mr. President, these are children's lives you are playing with here". For the past five years, the organization has led a procession of people across borders and up through Mexico towards the United States. Under the president's orders, renewal applications for people who already benefitted from the program needed to have been turned in by October 5, 2017. "They must stop them at their Northern Border, which they can do because their border laws work, not allow them to pass through into our country, which has no effective border laws", Trump tweeted.
