As Democrats announce deal, Trump tweets, DREAMers and advocates react

Given the current climate on immigration and the list of racist, bigoted promises Trump made to his voters concerning undocumented immigrants, supporting DACA could indeed hurt the president politically. He also noted that Republicans had a majority in Congress. "We're looking at allowing people to stay here", the president said upon landing in Fort Myers, Florida.

DETROW: And that's essentially what Trump and the Democrats agreed to, though a lot of the details still need to be worked out, some of them pretty major.

President Trump made it clear on Twitter the bipartisan statement of unity was premature.

Trump is making headlines - and getting blasted by some conservative critics - as he sits with far-left Democratic leaders to discuss illegal immigration and raising the debt ceiling.

Trump's hard-line conservative supporters had cheered his decision to rescind DACA, but have become increasingly uneasy with the businessman-turned-politician, in particular after he dismissed Bannon in August and began looking for common ground with Democrats.

"We are working on a plan for DACA". However, the president also told reporters a little later in the day that "the wall will come later".

Some local Phoenix organizations said they want to focus on the possibility that an agreement to protect DREAMers could be underway.

It seems there's a Trump for every occasion - one who said "if [taxes on the wealthy] have to go higher, they'll go higher", and another "whose administration's actual tax outline would mean a double-digit tax cut tax cut for top earners".

"We are disappointed that Democratic leadership has sided with Trump by negotiating with the lives of undocumented youth in exchange for border security", the statement read.

The White House responded quickly that there was no agreement to end plans to build the wall. "And ultimately we have to have the wall".

The issue has struck a chord with Trump's core supporters, many of whom expected the president to hold the line on immigration. "I don't think any us are going to be held back anymore".

Mr Trump has already given Congress six months to come up with a legislative package to address the status of Dreamers before the scheme is abolished.

House spokesman Paul D. Ryan (Wisconsin) dismissed the potential deal, calling it "just a preliminary discussion" and insisted that any deal should be considered by the leaders of the Republican Party, as reported by The Washington Post. According to Pelosi and Schumer, all parties reached an agreement "that the President would support enshrining DACA protections into law, and encourage the House and Senate to act".

"Without Republicans in his corner, well, the president has few options. wait around or forge ahead on his own", Hannity said. "We're talking about taking care of people, people that were brought here, people that have done a good job and were not brought here of their own volition".
