Trump Tells GOP Senators Not to Add DACA Deal to Spending Bill

Pres. Trump met with several Republican Senators today and told them not to add any DACA legislation to the must pass spending bill this year. Some Democrats have said they would be willing to face a government shutdown to include amnesty for Dreamers in the omnibus spending bill.

“The president made it very clear that he doesn’t want to see any DACA legislation as part of a year-end package,” said Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), who attended the meeting.

“We definitely ruled out putting any kind of DACA package on the omnibus bill, end of story,” said Tom Cotton (R-Ark.).

In September Trump rescinded the DACA program but gave a six-month phasing out period for Congress to find a solution.

During the meeting Pres. Trump stated that any DACA deal would have to end chain migration and strengthen border security.

“He wants a solution, he put it back into the Congress’s lap on DACA. He gave us until early March and he expects a solution but any solution to DACA’s gotta include an ending to chain migration,” Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) told reporters.

“The logical, coherent, tightly-wound package of giving legal status to the DACA recipients is to try to control the two negative side effects to that: chain migration and greater enforcement,” Sen. Cotton said.
