Republican Sen. Jeff Flake on Sunday said "plenty of lawmakers" were ready to work on a DACA fix despite a tweet from President Donald Trump earlier vowing "no more DACA deal."
"Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. 'Caravans' coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL," Trump tweeted Sunday morning.
The president also tweeted that, "Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. ...big flows of people are all trying to take advantage of DACA. They want in on the act!"
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, allowed people who illegally came to the United States as children with their parents to stay if they met certain criteria. Trump ended DACA in September with a six-month delay and said Congress needed to come up with a solution for the affected Dreamers. DACA was set to end March 5, but court battles have effectively nullified that deadline.
Congress has yet to come up with a solution for the program, often referred to as Dreamers, as lawmakers are unable to break a stalemate.
