Accusing Democrats of playing politics with undocumented immigrants who came into the country as children, President Donald Trump on Tuesday predicted that so-called Dreamers will fall “in love” with the GOP.
“Democrats are doing nothing for DACA - just interested in politics,” Trump complained via Twitter. “DACA activists and Hispanics will go hard against Dems, will start ‘falling in love’ with Republicans and their President! We are about RESULTS.”
Congressional leaders will meet with top White House officials on Wednesday to discuss a deal to avert a government shutdown and make headway on an immigration impasse.
Trump tweeted last week that “there can be no” immigration deal without his long-promised border wall and an end to chain migration and the U.S. visa lottery system. A spokesman for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Democrats won’t “negotiate through the press” but “look forward to a serious negotiation at Wednesday’s meeting when we come back.”
