Trump calls for border legislation

Trump blamed President Barack Obama and Democrats for supposed weak laws that mandate "catch and release". The caravans typically don't proceed much farther north than the Gulf Coast state of Veracruz. "Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation".

So much for the spirit of Holy Week.

"After a year in the USA without status with unlawful presence you can be barred from nearly all immigration options". In short, it was unpresidential.

It wasn't immediately clear exactly how the proposal would work or what kind of troops Trump wanted to deploy, but the White House later said Trump wanted to mobilize the National Guard.

In the lead-up to the March 5 deadline, Congress and the administration were unable to agree to a deal to resolve the fate of the roughly 690,000 immigrants protected from deportation under the program.

Less than two weeks ago, Mr. Trump tweeted, "remember DACA, the Democrats abandoned you (but we will not)!" Newly arriving illegal immigrants can not win protections under DACA, created in 2012 by Trump's Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, for two reasons. "They want in on the act!"

Of those 1.8 million, about 800,000 have received DACA protections in the five years the programme has existed, according to numbers from the Department of Homeland Security, the University of California-San Diego and several immigrations advocacy groups compiled by the USA Today network.

In January 2017, for example, Customs and Border Protection agents apprehended about 42,400 people at the US/Mexico border; by April 2018 this number had dropped to about 15,700. "These are the types of things in this program that need to be looked at", she said, adding that DACA recipients are not removed from the program for misdemeanor crimes. First is the notion that Democrats are the impediment to DACA.

We are not in trade war with China
Soybeans have finally entered the U.S. "We represent 6 percent of the imports but account for 51 percent of the tariffs". Germany's benchmark 10-year bond yield dipped back below 0.50 percent and toward 2-1/2 month lows hit last week.

Some 1.8 million undocumented immigrants entered the United States before their 16th birthday, making them eligible for DACA protections.

"There are no new applications for DACA being accepted", Buys said.

His Daca tweets came shortly after a report on the Fox New Channel's Fox & Friends programme, one of Trump's favourites, that a "caravan" of mostly Honduran migrants was crossing Mexico and headed to the United States, "either illegally or by asking for asylum".

Federal law prohibits the use of active-duty service members for law enforcement inside the US, unless specifically authorized by Congress. The President's reckless comments may endanger this type of cooperation.

By calling for Republicans to use the "Nuclear Option" to pass tough new immigration measures, Trump was urging Senate Republicans to pass legislation with a simple majority of 51 votes as opposed to the 60-vote majority required to end debate and bring a vote to the floor. Good luck with that.

This comes as Cabinet officials gathered at the White House to discuss issues including immigration and border security.

Because of a massive backlog in the immigration courts, it can take years for those cases to work their way to completion, and many immigrants are given the ability to work and live in the United States in the meantime, putting down roots. However, the American people have consistently shown in polls that they think the Dreamers should be allowed to stay here and either legalize their status or get on a path to citizenship.
